    i now work for a gm car dealer and they have the ac delco s/c oil....... good or bad?

    there are two plugs on the top of the piece that connects to the supercharger. it goes throttle body, part( assuming plentum) then superchager. there are two plugs on the top. open them up and there empty there are no coolant lines that run to them. they are completely closed i bellieve.

    can anyone confirm that oil should go in these ports or what should?

    GM supercharger oil is the good stuff. Seriously, Its one of the few things they do right. Thats what I use.

    And on the 3.4L superchagers, the oil is only in the nose cone part. On the grey ones, you have to remove the supercharger to change the oil and on the black ones you can suck it out and put new stuff in.

    Near the throttle body? Those are all vacuum ports. If you arent using them, they should be capped off. There are different ports for different vehicles that use the same engine.

    Read this page, towards the bottom is diagrams of the ports: http://www.gadgetonline.com/Super.htm

    they are six mm hex head plugs if you look at the link you posted and go all the way down to the trd kit. there are the three main bolts that go into the manifold 10mm on the top left side of the assemby these plugs im talking about are on the front left coner and rear left corner.
