supercharger oil level?

So, I decided to check the oil level on my supercharger... But how do i know if it is full? I've read so much stuff with no answer... Some say fill till it flows out of the fill hole... some say to fill till you see it about 1/4 inch below the threads of the fill hole.

Can someone clear this up for me so i don't over fill?

Dealer says you have to fill it till it flows over the hole. I haven't got any other answer anywhere else.

Thank you kind sir. So, my other question is if you fill it till it spills out then how do you "over fill" it that everyone stresses?

Actually, reading further I saw that you were supposed to drain the SC of the oil, then when all the fluid was drained, fill it with only 1 bottle from the dealer. With these SC's you don't want to fill it over or the pressure from lack of space will blow a seal. So DO NOT OVERFILL! Sorry for the confusion but here is a link to where all this info is:

Ok, sounds good... Since you are being very helpful i got one last question for you.

Does the supercharger ever lose oil? As in do I ever have to top it off or anything of that nature? Or just leave it alone till I decide to do a fluid change on the supercharger.

I don't actually know but I could imagine that the SC would lose oil over time because of heat from the engine bay. But not significantly to affect or damage it. The intervals are recommended at every 50k the latest so you should be ok.
