3.1 engines..weren't designed to have a super charger . The 3.8 s that have super chargers are built to handle it. Maybe find a.good used 3.8 SC engine and swap . You'll also need harnesses and Ecm . Throwing an SC on a 3.1 especially one with miles on it will just leave you with an ugly boat anchor .

The first thing that will go wrong is you will run out of money. It's not something you can just bolt on and go. You pretty much have to rebuild the entire car. Sell the car you have and buy a GTP. They are still relatively plentiful and way less expensive than what you're thinking about doing. Plus it was built by the factory so all the parts are right. If you want a project car, you can upgrade from there.
