Supercharger oil change...how to?

I was wondering if anyone has experience with changing supercharger oil and what they recommend for mileage intervals? I'm told only GM supercharger oil can be used, which is $12-$15 dollars for a 4 oz bottle? Also, Im told the fluid must be sucked out of the supercharger...any ideas on how this is done?

Thanks!

syringe + airline hose, or simply undo the hex nut and turn upside down (if blower is off)

takes ~ 1 1/2 bottles

also GM doesnt "recognize" servicing the blower- so its up to you on how often to change...
I'd say 30k or so (nice round # lol)

Any way to check the condition of the oil? Such as color? If engine has been overheated I would be concerned about the oil in the SC.

Haven't you guys learned by now the many uses of a brake bleeding machine? hook it up to air and it will vacuum brake/engine/trans/power steering/coolant and anything else fluid.....plus you can use whatever size line you want to get into the hard to reach areas. damn wrong wheel drive kids don't learn a damn thing these days

Like I said, people never learn to spend 20 to get a machine that has MANY uses, thats why they buy wrong wheel drive cars as they do not know any better
