Default Supercharging a V6 Camaro?

First, Bad news... The transaxle in my Bonnie gave up. Its being rebuilt and im selling the damn thing, and picking up a 35th anniversary Camaro with a 3.8L and 5-speed.

I'm wondering if its possible to put a supercharger (M62 or M90) on the Camaro V6.

As far as Supercharging, I think there are kits out there for the Camaro. But dropping the L67 into the Camaro I think is going to take more work, since its RWD and the Bonne is FWD. Why not get a V8?

In theory you could, some of the V6 f body clubs would be more knowledgable. If nothign else, use the block (same) and buy an L67, and put all of the parts on the RWD block.

There is no one who'* done this so it'* enter at your own risk.

The question is, would the SC on top of the engine hit the hood? That'* stuff you'll have to discuss with the F-body people.

There is an aussie m90 */c that points the throttlebody torwards the front of the car. If you get that and some L67 heads/belt drive drive you can get it to work.
I'm not too sure of the specifics though.
