yeah. It will be cheaper to sell the SE and buy an SSEi, which is supercharged stock.

that suckz..u jus killed my dream lolbut i guess it does make sense...i thought allthey did with the ssei was jus add a SC on it. like as in durin production...they made the se wit the stock engin...then wit the ssei they jus took the same engine (with no mods) and threw a SC on it?

Externally, they look very much the same. Internally, they are not. That includes the axles and trans, not just the motor and PCM.

Well, you can look at it like that. Depends on your mechanical aptitude and willingness to figure out how to make it work. I tend to lean towards the "start with the car I have" mentallity, instead of sell it and getting something else. But then, I don't always do things the easy way either, and have a certain "acceptance" of parts breakage.

Yes, the simple way is to sell the car and go buy a car with the blower already installed by GM.

or search for a wrecked sc car. someone recently posted one for 650. something like that would be ideal for a swap. you can swap the entire drivetrain. and still pay a lil cheaper inurance too.

It won't be cost-effective until you find an ENTIRE donor car. You want the engine, trans, wiring harness, PCM, and axles, and preferably the subframe. Then you need the factory service manuals from both cars. You'll be doing alot of cutting and splicing.

Ever done an engine swap before? If not, I suggest you sell your car and buy an SSEi.
