Exclamation ?'* about superchargers!

i have a 97 SE and i plan on getting a supercharger as soon as i get some essential info, i was wondering if you have to send in a core no matter what, if you want to buy one? and does anyone have a picture to picture installation guide (similar to some of danthurs installations on his car) or just regular old paper guide. and what would i need besides tools and the super charger its self? sorry if i sound dumb but i just want to get it put it and done.

P.*. on an other note, have you guys noticed that the 3800 is like perfect for a turbo, the exhaust passes right by the intake, plop a turbo right there and boom theres boost!

anyways thanks
Bret

Putting a SC on a NA engine check this out https://www.gmforum.com/t280218/

You'll also need a wire harness.

There'* a bit more to it then just dropping a supercharger on the engine and away you go. There is a write up about installing a SC. https://www.gmforum.com/t279634/

I believe you need to change heads, LIM as well a lot of tuning, so you will need tunning software, or access to someone that has it.
