Default Engine took a crap, Need a new motor. SuperCharge it?

My engines dead, I can get another L36 for $1500 installed.

Im thinking to go all out and just buy a supercharged motor.

So How does this work. Motor,Tranny and PCM? Does it bolt right in?

i may be stupid, but i say go for it. if u get an ssei motor, it does. the mounts are different in the gtp, regals, and park avenues. wiring harness is also needed. what happened to your L36
