supercharging GA...

Hey guys,

I probably wont do this but I might decide to, depending on my financial situation. I was planning on tossing an Eaton M62 supercharger into my 3.4L V6 1999 Grand Am. What parts would I need to do this (I know so far I need a fuel pressure regulator, larger injectors, the supercharger itself... and that's it. I'd pay a shop to do the custom fabricating, and get a new camshaft later)? Other than the parts I just mentioned, I'd like to have everything that DOESN'T require custom fabrication before I turn my car over to a shop to put it in/tune it properly.

THX

Re: supercharging GA...

Well since you already have the DHP PCM thats a big jump.

If you find a blower it will probly come with a few odds and ends. Possibly the FP regulator and the intake tubing and a bigger MAF sensor.

So then you'll need a longer belt, probly have to move you windshield washer tank up front(or to the pass side), at least 32lb injectors, dont wanna run to lean
It would be best to have headers.... but it'll work without them

oh yea and move the battery to the trunk.

ACTUALLY He could have his transmission done locally for about $1800-2200, if the trany isn't blown apart and the case & VB & pump are not damaged.
