donor rebuild vs current engine rebuild

i was bored and started searching ebay for T-bird SC and found a couple cheap ones. then i got to wondering is it worth rebuild a t-bird sc v6 or my current 98 v6. is the t-bird's roots blower a better way to go than the serpetine supercharger which is in my future plans. thats the main question as far as rebuilding.

then how much work is it to switch the 2 engines. i found complete cars too so the harness etc everything is there. what problems would i run in to switching, etc etc

o yea the t-birds are 90s and i have a 98

well the roots blower on the TB cars is not amazing by any means, I personally would build that 98 v6 3.8L motor you have with heads/cam/intakes and maybe even stroke it. You will put down extremly good power naturaly aspiriated (250-300rwhp/tq depending on setup) you can talk to Brent about it as he is currently building is 95 model 3.8L engine into a 4.2L stroker motor.

Stroke the v6 and swap the top end, go to tma turbo. And you will have a beast.
I was never a fan of the T bird superchargers.
