so i guess/ hope its normal to have some oil in the inside of the super charger housing-hat area?

just checking ...... would hate to have to bring it back to the dealer.

You mean that you unbolted it and removed it or somewhere else?

I found maybe 3 ounces of oil in my
supercharger at approx 4,000 miles. Jesse said the amount was normal.

it is definatly normal, During a hard decelleration, oil is pulled up thru the intake runners.

my v is in the shop right now - 22,500 miles - liquid (assume oil) in super charger - replacing with a new one - initially took in because a slight noise from engine (like goggleing sound)

Texasman...did you notice a reduction in performance? What is the fix that the shop is doing and what would it cost (just thinking long term) if it was out of warranty?

Wait4me...my V is bone stock. Where does this oil go as I drive? It can't be good to ingest in to the engine. What is this "catch can" I have heard of?

Thanks
