I think super six's power pack would be sweet! That's what I'm saving for personally!

I have a supercharger and all of the parts you need including intercooler, radiator, heads, etc. they are from an 89 Super coupe. I also have an extra 3.8 v6 the motor has over a hundred thousand miles but runs strong, I just took it out of my 99 Mustang and put in a 4.3 Stroker motor. I would take 2100.00 for the whole thing plus shipping.

There's a fully built engine (3.8 super coupe) on YouTube it made 352hp and 438lbs of torque to the wheels. He has a detailed build sheet so you could make that and more being a 4.2 stroker.

I am personally doing a 3.8Supercharged swap into my 2001 mustang out of a 1995 tbird. If you are going to do a supercharged set up it is less of a headache and more cost efficient to just do the entire swap. There is a lot of extra work involved with adding a SC on a sock shorty 3.8 block. #1 you need the forged internals #2 you have to downgrade to single port heads, and make sure you have true dual exhaust with an X or H pipe to keep from piping head gasket. #3 you will need everything from crank case to fuel rails to fuel pump and even have to get bigger injectors adapter plate since its most certainly NOT a "Direct fit" like I have seen some ppl misguide and say other wise.

This is my project so far, I have set the motor after a full rebuild.Click image for larger version
