Default Supercharging an 88?

I've been thinking about it lately and was wondering what would be required in supercharging an 88 bonny LE... would there be enough room under the hood, and what kind of costs would I be looking at? (besides new intake, exhaust, etc)...

Just another pipe dream for when I when the lottery

i swapped a series II */C from a GTP into my '88 when my tranny blew, thats a more cost effective way of doing it ($1200 for motor, HD trans, and wiring harness)

Hit a deer at 110mph... deer said smash, car said screech, cop said "damn, boy"

that reminds me, i never did get the stock dash wired up to the new ECM so my speedo was GPS. Wrecked it on the test run.

I did get to keep 3 out of 4 Eagle F1'*, my leather seats, and my boom boom system. And i still don't believe in airbags, I'd rather bust my head on the dash than have it blown off by an airbag.
