ESS TS2 leaking from pulley

Hey guys, after the m54b25 engine blew I am putting the supercharger on an m54b30. Its all mounted and ready to go with the new pulley size and tune etc.
However I am noticing some oil leaking from the bolts on the S/c pulley. Does it just need to be torqued more or what could cause this?

Are you sure it's from the bolts? There's a hole in the middle of the pulley to prevent oil over filling. Last time I changed the s/c oil, I poured more than I should and it came out from that hole, sprayed the hood insulation a bit

Your right its coming from the hole, will I just leave it as it is and let the overflow spill out?

If you tilted the s/c then you might have actually lost oil, if that's the case it is better to drain and refill with the correct quantity

Thanks for that paraklas, engine is nearly ready now but as all the parts are back on its very hard to drain the supercharger oil without taking off parts again, should I just to up with maybe 20mm and let it overflow? No?
