Question M90 Supercharger...how to?

I have the opportunity to buy a M90 SC supercharger from a Supercoup but can only get the charger and the components attached to it. I would need to find a new intercooler, piping, and other stuff. What else do I need? Do I need a different computer, injectors, etc? I am hoping to mount it on an otherwise stock 1997 3.8L Mustang. I have tons of experience with my other blown 1991 LX 5.0L but am clueless as to how to make this work on a V6. Send me the facts and links. I need help!!!

That is good info, but has anyone here actually done it? Looks like a PITA! My other option is to use the S-Trim from my other stang (trading it in on a 2008). What would I need to do to fit the S-Trim up to my 3.8L? Has anyone done it? I know Vortech sells a V6 kit...

go to v6power and take everything off of the list on that link that mustangman posted, Most of the wiring harnesses will work, I think you want to use a 93 cobra TPS, and then use an XCal to tune it all.

Its not easy, its not bolt-on, and I think your heads also have smaller bolts and a little bit different of a bolt pattern, as in 1 or 2 bolts will not line up, but it should seal correctly. Otherwise get SC heads or earlier NA heads.

Honestly, just do a split-port swap and then get a power adder after that if you still need something to go faster. An M112 SC would be easy to mount on a split-port engine.

even if SSM doesnt produce the kit they are really easy to have made, or make yourself. A lot easier than my single-port M112 project, thats for sure.

Great info guys...I am a little confused about the ports though. Do I have the split port or single? Consider me a V6 newbie, I have no clue as to what I have...I just have 15 years of 5.0L exp that is now no good to me...lol!!!

i really dont get the m112 on a single port, they already have the m90 that will mate up

hardest part is knowing how to get the snout and pullys to line up

Anyone have any technical photos of the installation of a M90? Maybe a step by step?

Well guys, I have decided to just keep my V6 the way it is. I thought I could make a real sleeper but all I would do is make my car average for a ton of work/expense that I am not confident in myself to do without a hassle. I am gonna trade the V6 in on a 2008 GT and continue with the Yates Headed monster I started building for my 1991 LX 5.0L...screw the gas prices, a V8 is hard to replace...I say that humbley with no offense to all of you V6ers! Thanks again guys and keep adding the good tech. Other people will use it too!!!
