I don't think it will without some major modification.

it wont just bolt on but where there is a will there is a way many have made the supercharger from the 03/04 cobra work on their 3.8L and some on the 4.0 I believe so it is possible. The issue you are going to run into is cooling and clearance. The hood may not work and the stock setups are cooled by water, you REALLY REALLY need this or some type of cooling. A standard air/air intercooler will not work due to the compression is right on top of the motor. The only other alternative rather than a water/air heat exchanger cooling solution is methanol and thats just a band aid to me at least.

Well ive found a couple of the superchargers for only 700 , compared to paying 5 grand for a new one . If I were to purchase a new hood and change all my coolants it'd probably cost 2400 for all the parts. Only problem is that I have no clue how to do this freehand , I'd need a guide of some sort

there is no direct bolt up, you will have to have something to match the supercharger up to the intake, thats custom fab work if someone has not done it already... you are looking at a costly setup regardless.

It might be better to look towards a centrifugal setup like vortech or procharger so you can have a cooling solution.... it will probably cost you 5-6k that route when done vs probably 3-4k for the GT500 or some other positive displacement blower.

Keep in mind the GT500 super charger or the 03/04 Cobra supercharger are Eaton brand are not twin screw blowers, they are root blowers and not nearly as efficient as twin screws (they wont make as much power per psi you put in them) and they run hotter.

Whipple or KB one is coming out with a blower that has coolant lines INSIDE it not just through the normal attached intercooler that generally sits under them.

That's KB.

That's only for cooling of the blower.

The facts are the KBs heat up quickly. That LC variant is NEEDED by KB.

ProCharger does make a very nice kit for your car and you'll make over 325RWHP with it.
Swapping over a 4.6 will cost you over $5k

dont swap motors, sell your car and buy something else and this will save you tons of money down the line. Just something to think about~ the value of a vehicle that has a swaped motor is VERY low plus you have to inform your insurance etc etc
