3.8 supercharger off a thunderbird???

I am a new member and I own a v6. I really want to supercharge it but currently i do not have the money. I recently found a supercharger system off a 92 thunderbird super coupe on ebay for a fraction of the cost of a new system from vortech or something like that. The thunderbird system would suit me fine if its a possibility. Does anyone know if this is possible, or if it would be too much of a pain?? Thanks alot.

It would be way too much of a pain. It would not end up being any cheaper than buying a Vortec or equivalent Supercharger

It would be cheaper to just buy the complete T/C engine and computer and put it in your stang. I also believe you would have to change your whole fuel system from a returnless type system to a return type of the single ports.

Furthermore, the ports on the SC super charger don't line up with your split port heads or split port lower intake. There'd need to be some kind of adapter plate to make that work.

Good source for 3.8 SC motors. I know this is late but any one else searching it may be of use.
