Would a v6 3.8 Supercharger fit a v8 5.0?

short answer: no.

even if you could, most V6 OEM superchargers will not be able to pump enough air to properly boost a larger V8 engine. If too under-sized, it will actually end up being a restriction. How bout that...

Can they, yes should it not really.

To mount have to get creative (like ditching A/C) and then you looking at a max of 5-8PSI. Assuming talking about them Eaton M90.

If all else fails get a bigger hammer!
