Will it fit? yes.

Will your engine be able to handle boost? Not for long.

Anything is possible, after all we put a man on the moon.

Is it easy to apply an Eaton M90 from a T-Bird SC on your n/a 3.8L '95 Cougar? No. Is it economical? No. Would the engine be up to the task? Probably not. Would you need to purchase a ton of SC engine parts? Yes.

Can it be done? Yes.

Is it worth it? In my high opinion, no. You're better of getting an SC T-Bird or just transplanting an SC engine into your Cougar if you desire an Eaton supercharged 3.8L V-6. If it were me, I would try a Vortech kit.

There are a couple of moded 3.8L cars here. You may want to check with those guys

i have owned a 1993 cougar xr7 that i have just recently sold, i have done your idea and to me it is a waste of time and money, taking a 3.8L in those cars takes more time and money than what it is worth and i learned the hard way, it can be done but again it is better just to buy a sc or just swap everything from a sc to your car because i ended up doing all that work and i threw a rod about 3 months down the road and ended up purchasing another 3.8L motor just so i could sell the thing. now i own a 94 lx with the 4.6L which im selling and my fiance bout me a 92 sc with a 5 speed, so from the expierience either buy what u want the first time or do the second best thing which is the swap, building up that motor in it right now is a waste, i know.
