Lot's of work. It can be done, but it really isn't worth the effort. Unless you have access to a machine shop and you can fabricate/engineer, you're better of buying a Vortech and slapping it on.

The 1993 SC used an early GEN-III Eaton M90 supercharger. You really want a '94 or '95 Eaton M90. Regardless, the 3.8L uses specific parts for the SC.

Swapping over the SC parts onto the NA 3.8 can be done. Worth it....that would be your call. I personally would rethink the idea through, considering all the factors in play.

If you have access to a salvage/donor SC you could swap over the complete drive train and wiring. If you go this route talk to Melon on this site. He has been down that path before.

Good luck.

Some supercharged cars blow.......Others just pick up and move.

Fear the insanely fast Thunderbird with SECRET mods!
Secret not meaning Fram filter and removed air silencer.
Yeah…definitely not
