Default supercharged engine differences from naturally aspirated

Hi, I just sold my 02 Grand Prix 40th with the supercharged 3800. Liked the power and I still got pretty good mileage.(about 28 on the highway. I am looking at a 97 Camaro convert with the 3800 and the wheels (and voices in my head) started turning. I know the engines are not a swap in due to transverse and straight mounts. Is there a drastic difference on the internals? Example: pistons, crank, rods?
Just a thought.

Crank is the same, pistons and rods are not. Neither are wristpins, heads are different, and obviously the LIM and TB.
