Question supercharging a non supercharged bonneville

I really want to throw a supercharger on my car and i really don't know how to go about doing it. My cars pushing a whole lot of extra weigh and i would like to throw one on it for some extra power. Should i get rebuilt one from a 3800, maybe a brand new one? If i do put one on am i going to have to mess with anything else like fuel injector or anything like that? any advise would be very much appreciated.

thanks everybody!

There'* a good amount to consider. DanThurs either has a writeup or is almost done with one on what it takes.

Biggest concern I'd see with you doing it is the extra weight and rims put a big strain on the transmission. If your motor becomes stronger, your trans is going to be your weak link.
