    Default Supercharged Fox?

    Was looking at my manuals and stuff and noticed the Supercharged MN12's have about the same engine ("Essex?") as the V6 Fox Cars.

    Alot of the numbers lined up upon quick browsing...
    Would it be a possibility to take a supercharger assembly from a Supercoupe, and put it in V6 Fox?

    Spaznigga did it. He doesn't really surf here anymore though.

    Spazz also used the entire engine. It's widely believed that a standard 3.8L will not withstand forced induction. There've been about 4 threads about this in the past week.

    Oh, haha, I didn't read that right, yeah he did use the entire engine. I'm no expert, but the first problem on the fox 3.8 is the head gasket, even if you were to solve that, who knows what might go out under boost. Best bet, is to use the whole motor.

    The SC motor is a completely upgraded package... Everything including the block was upgraded...

    Forget it on a std engine... Additionally You'll need the complete wiring harness and EEC...

    Bah, I've been looking for anything to get around an engine swap... But it's gonna have to happen.
