I wish I could get this - figured someone else here would like the engine swap.

IDK if I'd trust the internals of a 3400 to hold up to a supercharger for very long.

It's just an M62. That should be no problem for the 3400.

I've never seen a picture of Murcie-me's engine but he put a supercharger on his 2.8. It's in the nicest Murcielago replica I've ever seen.

3400 will hold up to boost just fine, it's been done plenty of times on 60v6.

Fageol makes a supercharger that bolts to the 60 degree. Food for thought.

There's really no evidence to support that claim.

With cross-bolted mains, the main weak point is pistons, then rods. But Mars' boneyard 3400 ran 11's, I believe he still has the same 3400 in his Fiero to this day, N/A though. I think it put down somewhere around 225whp too.

They do, but last time I checked their intake manifold didn't fit the 3x00 heads. Also, the supercharger displacement is on the small side. While it's adequate for a 2.8 V6, it would struggle to keep up with a 3400.

Quiet you!


They are what they are. They were not built for forced induction. The 3400 crank and rods are the same as the 3.4TDC units and are good to over 7000RPM, put LT1 lifter springs in the lifters, put in a cam that let's it breath and good valve springs to eliminate float and it will make power all the way out there too.

No, they are not as stout as 3800s, stock for stock. I am a huge fan of the platform, but be realistic. Although, really, I wouldn't turn down 381/353 at the wheels...

Supercharger at 13psi though... I'd rather have a turbo.

Huh? I think I translated that correctly, but not sure.
