    Welcome to the site!

    You'll probably get more responses if you post your question in the tech section of the forum.

    Sadly now demodded :(

    In 1 word: EVERYTHING!

    No bull, computer + wiring + mounts + (ad infinitum).

    It can be done but it helps if you have a complete (like a wrecked in the rear) V8 car for parts.

    I'm pretty sure you would need to upgrade the drivetrain.

    Except the rear. Same weak 10 bolt as the v8 cars.

    yup. you will need to do some extensive swaping of parts...gets pretty expensive, you are better off selling your V6 and buying a V8 maro to tell you the truth.

    probably be more of a pita to put the L67 blower on a f-body,the throttle body would be right up against the firewall and you would have to fab up some sort of elbow to make it work,not to mention the L67 is built with stronger internals than the regular 3800 series II.

    Nope same internals as the l36 all powder (semi forged) forged. Only the buick GN 3.8 T-type has "pink" rods. Which can't be used in the l36 or l67 gen II 3800 anyways.

    The L67 is the supercharged version of the Series II L36 and appeared in 1996, one year after the normally-aspirated version. It uses the Eaton Generation III M90 supercharger with a 3.8" pulley, a different throttle body, fuel injectors, cylinder heads, and lower intake manifold than the L36 uses. Both engines share the same engine blocks, but compression is reduced from 9.4:1 in the L36 to 8.5:1 for the L67. Power is up to 240 hp (180 kW) and 280 lbft (380 Nm) of torque. Final drive ratios are reduced in most applications, for better fuel economy and more use of the engine's torque in the low range. The engine was built in Flint, Michigan

    Yes I believe there are. They also make full forged internals and stroker sets too.

    Oh and to add... The only real diff in the heads from an l67 and l36 are the drillings for the SC injectors in the heads. The l36 castings contain the spots that get opened up for the l67 setup. Same guides, valve sizes, and port dia.
