Question Can you add a s/c to a non-s/c tbird?????

I was thinking of buying a 1991 tbird non supercharged engine, I think its an LX. I wanted to know if you can bolt on a supercharger with out modding the computer or any other part of the car? ANY info would be greatly appreciated. thank you in advance.

Re: Can you add a s/c to a non-s/c tbird?????

I'm by no means a professional but I think it will depend on how much boost you want to run. I'd think that you would have to modify the computer, injectors and fuel pump as a bare minimum for the motor to be able to take advantage of the boost. At higher boost levels, bigger exhaust, cam, beefed up tranny/diff may become necessary. Hope this helps and anybody feel free to correct me!
