You talking about a gen5 supercharger? Yes. You will need the lower intake manifold and a adapter to put your throttle body on it.

Shouldn't be any more boost.

A Gen 3 M90 pushes the same amount of air as a Gen V M90. The M90 is the amount of air designator. 90 Cubic inches of air per revolution.

The benefit of the Gen V is a cooler more efficient 90 cubic inches. This reduces cylinder temps. Aka cooler air, more power.
