Default Supercharging the Vin C

Anyone done this? is it possible?...I know you can put the tuned manifold off of a series I onto the vin c with some modification, so i was thinking you could probably put the SC from the series I on it also?

Oh Geez. Please keep in mind you'll never be able to run full boost, and the trans won't last long. The internal engine components are quite different. Bolting up is one thing. Lasting is another.

well i kinda figured that i wouldnt run full boost...But im running it through a 5spd manual tranny But even a 1/4 of the boost is a better performance gain on that engine than any other bolt on that you can do!

I'd suspect we're not talking about a Bonneville here, in which case the topic author needs to tell us what car, and put that information in his signature.

Yes sqela
You are correct, Ive got the engine going into a Fiero...sorry to get your hopes up on it being a bonny. Of course if you guys want to do it...theres a place called West Coast Fiero...They will make you a flywheel custom from your flexplate...blanced and everything....Its around $300 (i have to have it done) but you will also need to do custom half shafts, and mounts, wiring, computer editing, shift cables, and all that good stuff Fun Fun!!
I get to do all that...but with the engine instead!

Well, Im using the LN3 rather than the L67, becuase my friend was scraping his old 89...and i got the engine for free...rather than putting out some money, which im kinda tight on, to get the L67 (although it is a little more work to put the LN3 in, ie. the flywheel problem...It will be more unique though I mean come on...whats so special about putting in the L67, everyone does it now :P )

So now theres a small chance that a Series 1 Supercharger could come my way...and i figured since i already had to modify the belt drive routing, and ive put on the series I "tuned manifold" why not just put on the supercharger... Ive got to run Custom gas lines, etc, when i go to put it in...so it wouldnt be too much more work for the end power.
But if i read the post right that Sqela directed me to (by willwren) the heads are differnt, meaning I would have to swap heads as well? ...or do the intake holes line up the same? and just dont have the same flow properties?

Sorry i havnt made a Signature yet...been busy with the cars
Ill get on that right away

You need the heads as well as the lower intake manifold from a 92-95 L67.
