I was wondering how I could put a SC on a regular 3800. Would I have to get the computor re-done? I would want the performance shifting too. Is this possible?
Would I need to switch the tranny?

It is not possible. Well yes it is physically possible, but you will blow your motor. If you want to supercharge your car, you'll have to swap to the L67 engine and the 4t65e transmission. I am currently investigating the costs. You will have to swap the onboard computer, engine, tranny and the cv joints. When grandprix owners swap engines, they usually just find a wrecked, low mileage car like theirs, and swap the whole front engine cradle/axle. Its major work, but if you have a connection, you can do it for under $4k
