    Re: Supercharger Oil

    Scroll down a bit & it gives you a lot of info about changing the supercharger oil. The GM service manual has no info at all about the oil.

    No. If you look at how catch cans are plumbed you'll see they're catching condensed liquids in the crankcase ventilation system. In the V, the ventilation just happens to feed back into the supercharger.

    Thank you very much for this post jft69z.


    Here's my rant:

    I kind of ticked off that the factory manual does not state this and I am very ticked off that Eaton is holding us hostage by not providing a manual or offering parts directly and saying we must go to an authorized place for service. (Yes, very least they tell us how much oil to use.)

    Eaton listed authorized places:
    Magnuson has nothing for the LSA.
    ZZ Performance has everything you want for anything but a V8.
    Stiegmeier needs a web guy.

    So we (LSA owners) are not in great shape.

    I know that one day my alternator will die. You could say that it will last the life of the vehicle. I know that my water pump will die. You could say that will last the life of the vehicle too. So everybody's supercharger is dying between 5K miles and 25K miles. Some have lasted 40K - 50K miles.
    That's a problem and Eaton is not very helpful about it.

    If my supercharger goes after warranty I'm going to consider another company. F Eaton.

    To jft69z,

    Can you comment about the ZR1 crowd about how their superchargers are holding up and what problems they have been having.

    And please post some pics of your '69.


    Thanks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    You're welcome! (Google is a great tool, lol).

    So far there isn't any real issues with the ZR1 blowers that I can recall. They are a pretty sharp & vocal group on the Corvette Forum too, if there were issues, we would hear about it. Not even a mention of the isolator rattle that we have on the V's. The only issue I remember recently is someone modded the car, and the IAT got hot enough to melt part of the intercooler bricks in the housing. He found someone to add a thicker piece of plate to the brick & a bigger heat exchanger. Getting all the air out of the system is very important on those cars too from what I've read. Here is the thread that explained it very good, plus a lot of good pictures of the insides of the blower & damage.

    Misinformation would lead people in carrying out actions potentially causing damage or death. What drags down the dialogue here is you neglecting/dismissing the warning, context and implication of what incorrect information may do to owner's cars/themselves.

    Re: Supercharger Oil

    When you bought the new supercharger, wouldn't it make sense to ask a shop foreman about the oil? I assume it was not a cheap purchase, so the dealer would hold your hand a little, no??
