Not sure if it would harm anything but I wouldn't. The supercharger pulls in and compresses the air going into the cylinders. That's the way it was designed to run. A naturally asperated (non-supercharged) engine pulls air in on it's own. I'm sure things are calibrated differently between the two engines. HTH. -Jim
