Supercharging a 3.8L

Alright I have a 95 3.8 NA. And i came across some supercharger parts and here is what it includes: all the bolts. the pulley and injectors. the intercooler and piping and the supercharger itself and the intake and headers if i want them. My motor is a remanufactured 3.8 with the newer stock interals and about 6k miles on it, after HG went kaboom. Not looking for anything huge in HP range, about 200 or so would be fine. Any ideas on other parts i might need, and how would that hold up on a stock V6 tranny, with about 65k miles, as well as the other drivetrain parts with that milage . Also how much is a good price for all of that stuff mentioned above? Any help would be great!

sc motor

i would just be on the look out for a sc motor and than do a swap or if your only looking at 200 horse than just go with some under drive pulleys, cold air kit, some headers, full exuast and than go get it tuned and you will deffintly have a better running car with more power and you can do most of the work your self and save some money in the prosess of haveing fun.

hmm how easy is it to swap the sc motor into a 3.8n/a? i assume you would have to swap right down to the block as well...

96 LX 3.8

Custom air intake, 9" K&N Cone, ASP underdrive pulleys, True Duals with DI/DO midmounted Magnaflow, ported upper and lower intakes, ported TB...and more to come

do a search on this, it's been covered many times.

Generally, you need a whole SC parts car.
