No idea what is happening is not good.

It isn't practical/possible to put a supercharger on a non supercharged motor. An entire swap would be easier.

You'd need the motor and trans (trans gearing is different) as well as wiring, computer and some rewiring to the interior would need to be redone.

With the donor coming from a Riv..the 3.8 is basically the same, I am unsure about the trans. It'* a big project.

You might want to search Frankenbonne for an idea of how hard/easy it is.

Absolutely. It'* easier and far cheaper than a conversion or swap. And the conversion has never been done. (Because it'* not worth it).
