The Supercharger can be disconnected. My 1998 Ultra had a pulley lockup which caused the belt to come off. I pulled the intact supercharger belt out of the way of moving parts till I had a chance to work on it. A few months later I replaced the pulley and belt, which required raising the engine, pulling bolts out of the motor mount, and weaving the belt into place. I'm not sure it was worth the effort. The car runs very good without boost, for most driving. I continued to use premium fuel, of course. One could just cut the belt off and drive without the supercharger, if desired. So there you have it.
P.S. go to Discussion for more tips.
I have a 1999 with the 3800 engine. The owner's manual says the horsepower is 205 without the supercharger and 240 with the supercharger.
It might be the supercharger going bad. The supercharger has a little coupler that is located in between the supercharger nose and the main body. This coupler is located inside and once it starts to wear out it will start making a clunk sound. You can replace the coupler, replace the nose, or rebuild the whole supercharger.

You don't. It uses the same oil for lube as the engine. When you change the engine oil, you are changing the supercharger oil. * On the 92 PA ultra, The supercharger is sealed. The oil plug is next to the drive pulley, on the side closest to the firewall. Suck the old oil out with a turkey baster or similar, and refill with a high quality synthetic, or with GM specific Supercharger oil.
Try Gm And if you tear it apart and get them "Matched up" at a bearing supplier. There are also several on line stores dedicated to the Buick supercharged engine's.
