How to change your GM 3800's supercharger oil
Really easy! Takes no more than 30 minutes to do. Everything you need is
less than $30 with the right tools.
Supercharger oil: 4oz bottles are
$10-$12 at your local GM dealership. Need 2 bottles. You only need 6 out of
Vacuum pump: usually a free rental at some auto parts stores(such as
autozone) but some lack the cup. Tool costs around $30 to buy
Buy a inexpensive trigger spray bottle. Put the hose end of the trigger in
the Supercharger and spray into the
bottle. Takes longer, but is cheap!

How to find a vac leak on a series I Supercharged 3800 L67
I simple way to find a large vacuum leak on the series I supercharged 3800
(3.8l) found in many GM vehicles. GM put out a TSB about a failed gasket
between the Supercharger and lower
intake manifold for this engine. The conditions seen are a check engine
light P0141 and/or P0171 for a low signal on the oxygen sensor and a lean
condition. It usually causes the engine to run bad and idle high. Hope

3800 Series 2 Supercharged Modular Pulley System MPS Demo
Just a quick moduler pulley system "MPS" Demo.
The biggest bang for the buck mod for any Supercharged car is dropping
pulley sizes. Thats pretty much the first thing Supercharged car owners are
looking to buy when they get their cars.
As always scanning is the most important thing and I appologize for the
movie quality. I filmed this video on low res when I made it and Movie
Maker and Youtube degraded it more.
.1 drop in size = 1 extra pound of Boost
All 3800 Vendors offer excellent systems with lots of sizes
and as mentioned my system is made by "American Supercharger" on Ebay
HOW TO CHANGE THE SUPERCHARGER OIL ON A GM 3800 SERIES II V6
just a quick instructional video of how to properly change the Supercharger oil on your 3800... some people say
just to re-top off your Supercharger,
but many owners as well as a good number of master mechanics ive talked to
about it that worked on these cars, they say to full out replace it by
draining it and putting new oil in, simply because if you know anything
about oil youd know that it breaks down over time especially because of
heat and friction. new oil handles it better and keeps it properly
lubricated and cooler temperature. old oil will be dirty, maybe burned,
and possibly ineffective if broken down enough over time. which method you
trust is up to you, im not saying either method is right or wrong, this one
just makes more sense to me, therefore thats the one i do on my car so we
made the instructional video for this, if you choose simply to top off your
oil, do all the same steps just dont empty the old oil first.
