Are you sure its lost all of its internally stored oil? What does the coolant tank for the blower look like? (the one near your passenger side corner of engine bay)

Kinda looks like bearings went and were ignored and let some movement happen of the rotors and they started eating eachother up and into the SC case with movement from bearings being gone. Tolerances there are super tight. The actual oil in the innards looks like normal oil coating from a SC with no catch can and hard miles

Was going to say something similar to this but didn't want to be guessing. I doubt the oil had any way to get out, its a closed system and you'd know if oil got out.

Yeah, definitely looks like bad blower bearings and... what's the air filter like? Because I know desert sand quite well, and that sort of looks like it's got some sand in it too.

thanks for helping. but am in a hard miles yes in 140,000KM and when i got to 100,000 i have cleaned the supercharger and i change everything i did a heavy service for every little piece in that engine and about the catch can i got in the car since in got in 40,000 it's a double catch can馃槉 i tried my best to keep my engine and the supercharge in a gd and safe position. but that happened for my bad luck i think

You always need to be tuned when changing pulley sizes.

That supercharger im betting is garbage and will need to be replaced.In reference to the sand, I wouldn't be running an aftermarket filter combo personally, or at least not one without a pre-filter sock to do anything I could to get rid of the sand. Makes me wonder if sand worked it's way into the bearings and helped cause this.
