I have been wondering the same thing, I have a 98 and I have been looking around the junkyard, the supercharger itself would only be $70, but I believe that there is an extra pulley on the Ultra that powers it. I have heard that the Buick tranny is not built to handle the supercharger and needs to be replaced about every 50k miles. Giving the car the extra power may cause other issues with valves, heat, and reducing engine life. I am going to look into this further by comparing the repair manuals, and hopefully try it out.

Not only is a matter of the tranny being able to handle the power, but you do need the extra belt to power the supercharger. That would be the least of your worries. You would need to recalibrate (if not change) the fuel system to accommodate the increased air flow through the engine. Not worth the effort or cost.

You don't. It uses the same oil for lube as the engine. When you change the engine oil, you are changing the supercharger oil. * On the 92 PA ultra, The supercharger is sealed. The oil plug is next to the drive pulley, on the side closest to the firewall. Suck the old oil out with a turkey baster or similar, and refill with a high quality synthetic, or with GM specific Supercharger oil.

There is no button for the supercharger. The supercharger is always on because it is being driven by the belts of the engine. When you step on the gas, there is a vacuum line that is hooked up to the supercharger in which will close a little valve causing the boost to be diverted into the engine.
