I found a supercharger for 300$. It's 23lbs of boost. (300-500hp gain). How difficult is an installation for something like this?

What type of supercharger... And please don't tell me it's from a supercoupe because it won't be a direct bolt on like all the scammers claim

I wouldn't trust a supercharger for that cheap off craigslist... Is it the entire kit or just the blower itself?
Just the unit. Not the kit.

lol i think first you might want to research supercharger lingo because i think you're getting terms confused...lets forget the 5 lug swap for now ok...i know guys pushing mor hp then needed with 4 lug foxes.

what you need to decide is what you want out of the car and your budget..also how will it be installed...if you're doing the work...what's your tech level? do you want a centri style or a roots?

Okay. Well I had no idea for lug swap. Ha. Idk. I need to research it and how much my motor can handle. How much of an effect does mileage have on your performance or potential?

depending on how well your engines been taken care of it could blow at stock power being that old or could handle a good bit more abuse...i'd start with a teardown and see how the condition of everything is.

that fox has a single port 3.8 i think...but i'm not sure if it's the same 3.8 they used for the sn95's...

The engine layouts in sn95s are a little different. It's got under 8,000 miles on it. Engine was rebuilt.

My gramps was telling me he has it all setup for the swap, suspension n all. But even though its my car, my parents won't let me. I also want to do a tranny swap. 5 spd.

so just drive the car and enjoy it till you're an adult...save up your money then come 18 you can either A) take the savings and build the car B) buy another car with a better platform

slap some wheels and a decent exhaust on it in the meantime and you'll be held over :D
