Default Adding a supercharger.

Has anyone added a supercharger on to a stock n/a 3800? I am wondering what the costs would be if I tried it myself vs. having a dealer do it to my 2002 SE. Are there other mods that need to be done to the engine to accomodate the Eaton? The big question would be; what would that do to my 5 year/100,000 warranty?

Can't be done...well it can, but not worth it.

Warranty??? What warranty! According to GM if you wanted a SC'd version, then you should have bought one!
As for what can be done, well if you got the $$$$$$, I'll get the Parts!

I would have loved to get an SSEi to begin with but, the Mrs. or one of the 4 little ones would have to ride in the trunk. I need a bench seat in the front. Now granted, the bench in the front of a 2000 or newer Bonnie is a poor excuse for a bench seat but, it does serve my purpose. I think my next step is to change out the air intake. One of the operative words in anything I do to my car is "economics".
