Default Supercharger on a sse -90?

Hi

I have a bonneville sse -90 model with 167horsepower. I know that the later model bonneville came with supercharger, but is there any supercharger that is "bolt on" on my engine? it`* the 3.8 v6. Can you put a supercharger from a 94 bonnie ssei into it, for example?

I think it`* a great car, but with a supercharger it wuld be perfect!

Torkil.

If the Series 1'* are anything like the Series 2'*, there are many things you have to swap around to make it work. I could be wrong though. In your case, I think you would be better off either doing a complete transplant, or just buying a (97 or newer tuneable) car that already has it in it.

As far as the Series 1 aftermarket parts are concerned, virtually nothing. Series 2 parts, GALORE!!

The SSEi engine should fit. But I think you may need the trans that came with it, wiring harness, and PCM. Otherwise, it may not run right. I know that'* how it is with the 95-2005 series.

Top swap thread: https://www.gmforum.com/performance-...engine-279634/
My opinion, very bad idea. The LN3 does not take as kindly to boost as the L36 (series 2) and usually tears up the bottom end of the engine in short order. Full subframe swap is usually the way to go, then you have the reliability that comes with a supercharged engine that was built from day 1.
