Basically for the money you could build the motor with heads/intake/tune and have good power gains.
yeah the blower will stick out of the hood a decent bit
i will say this, if you want a track car only, water/meth injection and a small shot of juice will keep it plenty cool, was talking to Matt (first to start the M112 swap craze, sold his design to Mysteedperformance.com) and he said you can make 450-500rwhp with one safely if you do it right
it's not that streetable though, would run out of "coolant" quick lol
the M90 setup isn't really that great a deal as a direct swap in, but if you plan on doing a little work to it while the motor is out sure go for it, they made crazy torque thanks the blower style.... and even down the road the M90 is better than an M112 since it's made for air/air intercooling from the factory a lot simpler than water/meth
to the original question yes all the 3.8's have the same bolt pattern for the trans...
since you're keeping the auto a shift kit would be a great idea to do for extended life and better performance
