I also heard that using 100% synthetic 5w30 motor oil will also work too ( gee.. I wonder where I heard that from ?? cough cough... ). Although I don't understand the physics ( or have the specs ) for the supercharge oil. I don't see why motor oil wouldn't work either, as it helps reduce heat and is used primarily in your engine for metal to metal surfaces... food for thought.

I heard somewhere that the supercharger oil is made up of animal fats. Any truth to this?

I've done more research on this and found out that most GM dealers that DON"T sell a SC'd car will tell you this. A GM dealer that does sell a SC'd car will sell you the SC Oil instead. According to Magnuson (Manufacturer) ONLY GM SC OIL SHOULD BE USED!

No offence Rat.. you the demi-god and all .. but to contradict that.. so does most hair shampoo " Use their conditioner after only " or electronics " Use the same brand AC adapter only" ( When you can go to Radio Shack and get it cheaper ) ??? Food for thought...

Radio Shack?? Ugh. Sorry, I'm a Radio Shack escapee. You have questions? We make up answers. Since I know nothing about supercharger oil ( I don't have a supercharged engine ) I'll be running along now.

Both.. what'* the good of having a good car when you can't have your hair waving through as you cruise by a ricer giving him the finger ??? ha ha ha ....

What I meant is basically all companies want you to buy there products instead of someone elses..even though it might just do the same.. ( sometimes if not better )

I know at least for other types of roots blowers, 6-71 through 12-71, used on dragsters, that the gear drive in the blower uses 75w90 or similar final drive type gear oil. This is because of the high pressure addatives that the gears need.

Since the blowers on our cars are based off these old roots type blowers I am going to assume that they will also use the thicker oil. You might be able to use amsoil 75w90 synthetic gear oil or something similar but I think I would just stick to the GM, Eaton, Magnuesson oil.

Thanx Azwed :o that was the answer I was looking for... since you stated that they use 75w90. With that.. I can now understand why to use */C oil because the rating is a lot higher than standard motor oil... thanx...
