You CAN'T put a Super Coupe supercharger on your NA 3.8

The title says it all.

The long and short of it is, the Super Coupe's 3.8L engine is a lot different from every standpoint, including the head design, block construction, and rotating assembly durability. Not to mention, the N/A 3.8 has higher compression than the SC.

An N/A 3.8L will not under any circumstances perform well or last long by merely adding the Super Coupe pieces.

The common consensus seems to be that purchasing a Super Coupe or sc'd XR7 is the easiest way to get a supercharged V6 Thunderbird or Cougar. (Go figure.)

Please use the search function to find more information regarding this matter, SC engine swaps, or the ins and outs of SC ownership.

Please sticky this.

I agree. At least until someone proves Josh_Keady otherwise.
