Ok guys, I have looked in my owners manual and I didn't find anything, so I’m pretty sure I know the answer to this questions, but to make sure I thought I better ask everyone else.

Anyway, here it is, does the oil need to be changed in the super charger on the GT500, or is it lubricated from the engine oil, and there for when you change the engine oil, you are also changing the super charger oil?

Thanks

Supercharger service interval is 100K,BUT in my opinion at least every 15k the supercharger should be removed and the intercooler cleaned-It will have alot of oil build up on it reducing its efficiancy.At the same time the oil could be easily changed.OH-the supercharger has its own oil-only older superchargers tap into the engine oiling system.

Actually you may be surprised how little build up you find on your intercooler. Good idea to clean it though.

The supercharger oil is easy to change while its off the car. In a stock application its really not necessary.
