Default Supercharger Refresh Gasket Questions

Ok, I'm going to be "rebuilding" my supercharger soon and I need to know what gaskets for sure I will need to replace. Also, there is a slight oil leak that pooled up in a small space above my valve covers, underneath the supercharger. I'm not sure exactly where it'* from and I'm not losing anymore oil. If someone could give me an idea as to what it is, that would be awesome. I'm planning on replacing all of the gaskets down to the valve cover gaskets, so if someone could list what gaskets I need to do that, that'd be great as well. Thanks.

You don't really have to, but when it comes to taking the supercharger off, the throttle body can either stay on or you can take it off. So, you would need a throttle body gasket.
Then your going to need a supercharger to lower intake manifold gasket.

If your going THAT far, you might as well get the new aluminum lower intake manifold gaskets. Unless they are already installed, then you can pretty much skip that part.

How far you going anyway?

I'm thinking I'm going to change the valve cover gaskets because it seems like there'* oil seepage on the side of my engine block as well. I want to take care of all the oil leaks and what not. I just rebuilt the front end and the back end. And I recently rebuilt the trans as well, so what the heck. If you know the gaskets and such that I need to replace to do the valve cover gaskets and if there'* certain ones that are better that'd be awesome. Thanks

I'd go with felpro gaskets. If your just doing the valve covers then that is all you need.
