Take a look at the picture a few posts ago (thanks six-shooter for this pic). When you take the screw out there should be no loss of oil.
The oil should be up to the bottom of the thread - may need a torch to help see inside.
I looked at the pic. Just thought that seeing its the drain and fill hole that oil loss might occur. observation.

I used an Allen (Hex) key. Can't remember the rated size though.

Thought so. I was trying with one this morning. It's certainly on tight.
Thanks for that.:thumbsup:

***** Please Note *****

Make sure that the engine/supercharger is cold before opening the S/C Oil plug. If its hot, it can splurt hot oil and steam out the hole (Which stinks and will cause oil loss).
Just a warning for all.

For the oil I asked an Auto 1 shop, and they said it will take Syntrans 75W/85 (castrol i think) these come in 1 litre bottles @ $25. They had to ring around and find out and seemed geniune helpful. This sounds like a cheaper and get more for your buck option than Holden dealerships.
