Before you post about SC'ing an N/A 3.8

This topic rears its ugly head often without being searched for, so please do your research first before posting a forum-ignorant question.

To summarize, the generally accepted options are to...
---Get an SC parts car and engine/blower combo. (lots of work)
---Do the work in swapping the intake system for the SC's blower/intake system...this requires a really good tune. (TONS of work)
---Just buy an SC. (much easier and straightforward)

Rancherlee and Thomas seem to have the most experience with this swap.

If anyone has any legit additions or corrections, please post them.


A man may smile and bid you hail
Yet wish you to the devil;
But when a good dog wags his tail,
You know he's on the level.
