ZZ Performance plans on releasing a Supercharger installation kit for an L36 (Series II 3800 NA) including the Impala. See link below:

The Eaton M90 Gen3 SC and intake manifold are also available there but must be purchased separately.

Hey...check this out. It's more for a turbo. But it's an incredible deal on it, and it comes with EVERYTHING you could possibly need to install it. I found it cause I'm in the same boat as you. My dad just bought me an 03...and I'm picking it up in 3 days. So...here's what i found

well, with posted dates that I see, you may have already bought the car, but if you havent look into just getting a SS model -comes with a supercharger- other wise adding a supercharger can get quite pricey.

For the cost it would take to supercharge a N/A 3800, you'd be better off getting the car setup for turbo-charging. More power out of it, only downside would be the 'turbo-lag'

SC is all power all the time turbo takes rpm's to got it going 18 psi of boost would kill on any imp

It's not the supercharger or turbo depending on boost you have to worry about when racing a Series II/III 3800. It's the flaky 4T65E or 4T65E-HD tranny. Stock it's only good for continuous mid 13 second quarter miles. After that it's a ticking time bomb. Just my 2 cents. :2cents:

Don't they manufacture higher-end transmission parts/ Complete 'race' transmissions now for Those motors? I agree the 4T65E especially is flaky.

Yes. Companies like Trasher and ZZPerformance have them available. And there's a company that makes one called the 65 T-Raptor.

Thought so, I pondered purchasing a Thrasher when my tranny was on its way out. Did pricing and decided it was in my better intrest to just get a new HD tranny like I had... Extra money it would have taked I'd much rather put towards other parts of the car right now. (Like its desperatly needed paintjob)
