You would be better off getting an actual SC motor from a parts car than trying to swap an SC onto a standard 3.8L LX. The SC motor is designed for the boost application, as it has forged crankshaft, rods, and better pistons to handle the boost. A normal 3.8L would not handle the boost you can get out of the M90 Eaton blower that the SC's came with. You would most likely end up breaking something in the bottom end, and then have to start all over w/ a new motor. Check out www.tccoa.com for more info on this.
As pointed out, above.. PLUS.. 3.8L engines already had a problem with head gaskets....It is not practical for the sometime mechanic to add forced induction to those engines.
In fact the BEST way to do it is to find a wrecked SuperCoupe and swap EVERYTHING.
Or sell your LX and buy a SC
Trade for a 1995 thunderbird supercoupe. Major engine mods for the 4.6
Can you put a 1994 thunderbird motor in a 1996 thunderbird?
Yes, you can put a supercharger and twin turbos on a 2008 ZO6 Corvette..
You can put a supercharger on a stock engine it depends on how much boost you run wether your engine can handle it or not.
You can put a supercharger?turbo charger on anything. It all depends on how deep your pockets are.
Yes, on 1997 and 1998 only. TRD supercharger.
You can put a supercharger on any engine. All a supercharger is, is an air compressor that forces air into the engine. If you can find a compressor small enough and figure out a why to hook it up, then you will be good to go.
no is not possible i do not think that an automatic transmission can handle all the added power plus you need to modify the ecu in order for the supercharger to work correctly.
You can but its very tricky unless you are a mechanic!
it won't work. they have different intakes.
