When you say you're adding oil, where are you putting into supercharger & what type are you using. Mine seems to be low as well.

It depends on which generation Whipple you have.

There is a service port on the right front of the nose case for adding oil and I am using Whipple SCOIL, supposedly a special synthetic from Whipple- DAMN EXPENSIVE!!!!! My main concern is if the oil can do any damage to the rotor seals since they are intended to run dry.

Thanks for the pdf. So which option do I use: Lysholm Compressor OR New Whipple Compressor. I'm assuming since I have a 2nd Generation I should follow the New Whipple Compressor, please confirm.

You are correct. Lysholm produced the Gen I rotors until the two companies had a falling out.

Ya I'm not sure where that oil goes, my friend a tech said that losing oil in a stand alone set up means it's going into the intake manifold and the seal must be gone and get it fixed asap. No brainer. Has Whipple got back to you?Maybe try Jared at Lethal performance .

Tokico, Eibach, Whipple H.O, Autometer, Magnaflow, Edelbrock LCA, Thumprr tensioner and pullies, TCI Streetfighter. FRPP 3:73 rear, 302 forged shortblock, Coast 1PC D/S, Steeda relocation brackets, Currie Adj. UCA,
