The short answer: YES, YES IT WILL!!!!

The Long Answer:
So I notice these threads and they usually come up when people find cheap "deals" on craigslist. They usually are titled "supercoupe supercharger" or "3.8L supercharger"



The big question is is it worth doing the swap: Yes and No.

If you have the mechanical knowledge, don't mind your car being down for a weekend or two, and don't mind working out a few bugs after its all put together then sure.

Here is the kicker: MOST SETUPS ON CRAIGSLIST ONLY INCLUDE THE SUPERCHARGER, DISCHARGE PIPE, INTERCOOLER, AND INLET PIPE. Those parts complete about 40% of the setup.

This list was originally composed by sprout, and slightly edited by me.
-Roots blower
-SC blower top
-SC lower intake
-SC rear blower intake with SC TB
-Rear intake (from IC to lower intake)
-SC thermostat housing
-SC jackshaft pulley bracket
-SC PS pump bracket
-SC crank pulley
-SC water pump and pulley
-PS pump pulley (you can us your mustang pump)
-SC tensioner pulleys (all 3)
-if using the SC block/crank then use the 94-95 neutral balanced dampener with exeter gear, some dampeners off the F150 will work as well.
-if using the mustang block/crank then use you stock mustang dampener
-if using the SC block/crank then use the SC flywheel/flexplate
-if using the mustang block/crank then use the mustang flywheel/flexplate
-Mustang or SC starter will be fine, they are the same
-Mustang headers
-SC heads are better but Mustang heads would probably be fine (SC heads are supposedly a little stronger)
-SC injectors or eqivilent plus matching MAF
-89-93 SC came with 30# injectors and 55mm MAF
-94-95 came with 36# injectors and 70mm MAF
-all cooling hoses
-SC thorttle cable
-SC throttle cable bracket
-MUSTANG EEC
-MUSTANG wiring harness
-wire to lengthen wiring harness connectors
-extra cooling hoses for custom work
-MUSTANG timing chain cover or 94-95 SC timing chain cover
-MUSTANG crank sensor
-MUSTANG or SC alt will work, MUSATNG better sicne it has the extra connect on it, but will work without it for the SC alt, need to change pulleys if using the Mustang Alt. I believe the Mustang alt is more powerful as well, not exactly sure.
-SC AC compressor
-custom AC lines
-custom air inlet needed
-SC intercooler or custom front mount.
-SC valve covers
-Mustang DIS module, don't need the SC one.
-SC oil cooler (not needed but good to have)
-Mustng rad will work, but if using the SC IC then might be easier to us ethe SC rad its a little smaller though but works for the SC guys fine.
-Major tuning

Horsepower:
On a bone stock supercoupe people normally see about 200rwhp/260tq until the blower is heat soaked then numbers drop of course.

This is a stock dynograph:

Also if you have a 99-04 you have to swap the split port heads back to single, so if you have a 99-04 you need heads.
I am doing this swap currently and can’t seem to find the neutral balanced dampener with exeter gear to put on my sc engine. Do you know where i could find one? Also I see you say use supercoupe flywheel should i also use sc clutch and pressure plate? Thanks.
