Best Oil for the TVS2300 SC606 Supercharger

Post by Bmakaz » Sun Feb 03, 2019 11:16 pm

Does anyone know what the factory fill or best oil for the TVS2300 supercharger is? The oil is good for 80-100k miles, but I want to change it out with fresh since it is going on 7 years, but only has 12.5k miles of use.

Great timing on this thread, as I was thinking of doing the same on mine. Is there a procedure for this anywhere that I could reference?

Stay tuned I will post what I did later today. Pretty simple but your back takes a little bit of a beating bending over the motor.

Okay as a CMA (Cover my *ss) I take no responsibility towards this procedure. This is what I did to change out the oil in the TVS2300 Supercharger on my 2012 Callaway with 12600 miles. (you can see the difference in the oil mainly as pictured fresh on the left side older on the right side)
I have a touch of OCD when it comes to my cars fluids and prefer them to be as fresh as possible.

Items needed:
4-8 oz. Ac Delco Supercharger oil can be found online or via a GM dealership ( mine only took about 4.5-5 oz.)
Syringe with approx. 14-18 inches of hose ( can be found on the internet)
3/16 hex bit and a ratchet ( you could also need various extensions if needed)
shop towels


Step 1. Drove the car for about 15 minutes to warm the oil up and then let sit for about 30-40 minutes ( the Supercharger was still pretty warm to the touch)
Step 2. I placed clean shop rags under and over the belt to prevent the possibility of losing the fill plug and to keep oil from getting on the belt or intake
Step 3. Located fill plug and cleaned the area to prevent any debris from getting inside once removed
Step 4. Removed the fill plug and set aside in safe location using 3/16 hex and ratchet. (Check yours for proper fitment to eliminate stripping the fill plug)
Step 5. Inserted tube from the driverside into the fill hole and maneuvered inside the housing. Hint easiest to insert at an angle going towards the passenger side. If you try to go straight in it will be blocked as a gear is right there.
Step 6. Attach Syringe and pull fluid out. Remove Syringe with tube still attached while being careful not to drip oil on the rest of the engine area or car. Discard old oil in a container to be recycled.
Repeat steps 5 and 6 until you are unable to get anymore fluid out. In my case I was only able to get approx. 4.5-5 oz out.
Step 7. Using a clean tube attached to the fresh oil and inserted into the fill hole and poured fresh oil into the housing. After pouring in approx. the same amount I pulled out I monitored fill hole for oil to pour out.
Step 8 I let stand for a few minutes to allow the oil to settle and tried to add more oil. Once oil came back out of the fill hole I wiped area and replaced fill plug after cleaning it too. Do not over tighten as the case seems to be aluminum and you do not want to ruin the threads.
Step 9. Wipe area and clean up any residual oil
Step 10. Most inportant step go out for a nice drive.

Excellent! Thank you for sharing this! :thumbs

A couple of questions:

- would you be able to post a link to where you bought that clear plastic hose? It looks like it might connect to the syringe on one end? I don't think I've seen a hose like that before.
- what is that attachment to your rachet? Again, not something I've seen before.

Here is a link to Ebay the seller was Khaos Motorsports. I got this kit and it comes with 2 4oz. bottles of oil and a syringe with tubing. When I filled mine I had other tubing that I used, but I guess you could use the syringe and tubing they send with the syringe acting like a funnel. I did request to get a longer piece of tubing and they accommodated via notes to seller at purchase.

https://www.ebay.com/itm/Supercharger-O ... 3558222355

The adapter I have pictured is a Craftsman finger grip adapter and they come in real handy in tight spaces
Sears item info is Item # 00943401000 Model # 43401 cost like $10 for a set.


I hope this helps.

One last question: how were you able to confirm w/ Callaway that that sc oil was correct/ok? I looked on the Callaway website but couldn't find anything.

The oil container pictured does show the proper part number which I referenced.
