The Supercharged motor has some stronger internal parts.
If your willing to spend some money you could just do a 'top-end' swap from a supercharged motor onto your SLE and have a sle
eper on your hands.
You will need to have a PCM tune as well. I believe you will be far more pleased with the outcome going this route.
PM Billboost for more information on doing this though. He has first hand knowledge on this and would be the best person to ask.
I can't stress enough on the mistake you would make on the car swap!
You'd be going from
a 7 year old car to
year old car. In car years the 2010 cars are out so that is why the numbers are higher.
Tell your buddy thanks but NO thanks.
Stay with what you have........tweak it to fit your needs.
This is just my opinion so if your willing to do the car swap and your buddy is willing than more power to you. He should give you some money with his trade though.
