Wipple supercharger for tbi info

Hey pirate, I have a supercharged 4.3 in my toyota pickup and trying to get some more info on it. Most importantly oil type and quantity. It has a dip stick with two marks but im not sure if its a warm or cold check, it makes a big difference on the level. Cold is not even on the dipstick and warm its right in the middle . The 2 emails and a call to wipple netted nothing more than a "we stopped making it about 20 years ago, we have no parts or documentation on it " anyone have any old manuals or dealings with these old tbi superchargers. Any tuning or related stuff is welcome to.

Nothin hu, is this that uncommon of a setup or is not hardcore enough for this section. I can move it if need be but figured I'd start with the chevy guys.

I can't say specifically for that application, but I had a whipple in the mid-90s with a similar dipstick. As I recall, the lines are just a "high" and "low" mark. The oil needs to be between the two. I don't recall the type of oil used. It may have been some special concoction that whipple supplied. Why not just call them??

Why not read the entire first post?

I saw that but it didn't really seem to fit my application 100 percent. They make is sound as if all wipple compressors had a sight glass and the lysholm units had a dip stick, however mine is not knurled and as far as a can tell is a wipple made unit. That's when I reached out to whipple for clarification and got nothing. It also does not mention of its checked hit or cold and my levels change a good amount between the two. I've never messed with a s/c before, are they as sensitive to oil type and amount as people make it sound ?
