The Magnuson supercharger requires almost zero maintenance. It only needs an oil change once every 100,000 miles and that's it! This kit comes with everything you need to service your supercharger. It includes a pre-measured amount of oil, new drain plug with O-ring, new drive coupler and sealer.
The oil change kit is just that and will not repair bearings that were noisy before the oil change. If you are experiencing bearing noise the unit must be sent to a authorized Magnuson service center for repair. Call Magnuson Products, LLC for the nearest repair center near you 805-642-8833
