To change the oil on the supercharger that Buick Riviera is equipped with first remove the plastic cover directly over the supercharger. Next, stand on the passenger side of the vehicle and face the engine. You will be looking at the front of the supercharger. The oil fill port is located on the front portion of the supercharger along the right hand side as viewed from your position. It is a large hex plug. This is both the drain port and fill port. There are several ways to drain the oil. My personal favorite is a piece of rubber tubing and a large syringe. I have found this to be the quickest way. Once you have drained it use a funnel small enough to fit the fill port and take your time filling it. Fill it to just below the threads at the bottom of the oil port. Be careful not to overfill it. After you have replaced the oil plug I like to disconnect the coil wire. This allows the engine to turn over but not start up. It helps to circulate the new oil through out the supercharger that were drained dry. This is not required however. It is my own personal preference. From this point it's ready to go.
you will most probably need a beefed up tranny to take the power of the engine, I have just installed a 350 supercharged chevy motor in my sons car with a Turbo 350 transmission and a shift kit which I have been told by an auto trans mechanic may not take the power of that engine.
It is costing him $1500 australian to have it reconditioned so I hope it will survive the rides
