My guess is more moving parts = more oil comsumption.

[quote="mattls2"](this is knowledge from my 69' VW project but i bet some of it applies)

In the VW i bought an extra oil sump to provide more oil to then engine, and make it less likely that when cornering that sertain parts will not recieve as much oil as others.[quote]

The Cadillac Northstar engine employs this type of system. They rated it to take x.x lateral G's before certain parts of the engine would get decreased oil flow.

I would also think that the supercharger would need some sort of lubrication, thus a need for more oil.
