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
