The short answer to that is yes, but you'll need a lot more than just that supercharger to make the car work.

Read through this:

ZZ Performance

You'll need a modified supercharger, fuel logs, intake manifold, and a custom pulley. ZZP sells all of it.

You will need that too. In the end, your better off buying a car with one in already.

for the Official answer all in one post

I have personally witnessed a few top swaps and they are still going strong

The NA motor has a higher compression, this means that you can run a larger pulley on the SC and make the same power with someone with a smaller pulley


you need the following

Supercharger
Lower intake
SC fuel rails
GTP injectors
Accessory bracket from the SC
Balancer from the SC
Wiring differences ( easy and there is a kit)
PCM programming

again there are TONS of GT guys that have top swapped and there are no problems after lots and lots of miles
