from here http://engine.firebirdv6.com/3800history.html
cool site to read

Quote:
Nearly all of the Series II refinements invested in the normally aspirated 3800 V-6 were passed on to the supercharged version in 1996. In addition, the supercharger'* internal displacement was increased from 62 to 90 cubic inches. Driving the blower 1.8 times faster than crankshaft speed yields a maximum full-throttle boost of 7.5 psi and impressive output: 240 horsepower at 5200 rpm and 280 lb-ft of torque at 3600 rpm.

You may want to take a look at the performance packages that INTENSE offers. INTENSE has the fastest SSEi on the planet at 10.7 and can really make your car sing
