I have a 2001 Buick Regal GS and my transmission went out. Is there a such thing as a supercharged transmission? Or can I buy a transmission and hook up the supercharger?

The supercharger is a belt-driven device on the engine to produce positive pressure induction. More air is pumped in to intake plenum than vacuum provides = More power. No, there is no such thing as a supercharged transmission

While Fordnut is correct, as per usual. Supercharged vehicles do use a different transmission. When shopping for a transmission be sure that the codes on the tag of the new/replacement transmission match the codes on the tag of the old transmission that you're replacing. HTH. -Jim

Good clarification Jim. It's not a "supercharged transmission" but a transmission intended for use on a s/c engine.
