Don't buy the Ford stuff. Go to a Pontiac dealer and get it from them. It's about 3 times cheaper there.

Its sunday dude. What weight is this oil? Is it multi-viscosity? What does the Ford supercharger lube part number cross over to?

There isn't any type of other oil that the original Ford synthetic lube will cross over to. Many people have used other types of of oils. If you are going to use another oil, I would remove all of the original oil and put in the other oil. I would not suggest mixing the lubricants.

This thread has some info on replacement lubricants:

Go to a GM dealer and get the supercoupe oil. The part # is 12345982 and costs about $7.00 and change compare to the ford dealer at $20 or more.
