Re: interesting question

Yes it is possible but you are looking at lots of work for it to be reliable. You would want to rebuild your bottom end. A engine with alot of miles on it is use to its "normal" pressure. A stock tranny isn't built to handle a charger either. Sure you could buy the kit put it on and be happy as hell with it for a couple of months, BUT then you will start to notice a the problems that a charger will bring. I don't think all of this is worth it for only 4-6 lbs of boost. Keep it natural... ALL MOTOR! Only my thoughts, others might differ.
