Supercharger? State emissions cramped my style......

Supercharger? State emissions cramped my style......

Postby adventurefar [OP] » October 16th 2015, 9:01pm

Hey all,
So I've finally got about 600 miles on my rig now. Still working out bugs and working on the wiring for my camper build out. However, driving a hollow can around has proven a couple things.

1. The GM crate 4.3 was a good warranty and deal, however, its just enough passing and power for a hollow can around town. No gear. No build out inside yet....or hills.
2. The emissions laws where I'm at, and the research I had done coupled with budget/time, seemed to eliminate the V8 option; that so many have done.

Then I was at a U pull it yard harvesting upfitter wiring harnesses when I saw this.....

Apparently this is a Buick version
20150926_100732.jpg
After further investigation its a 3.8L.

Damn....


So, I've been reading the posts....wow...considerable discussion on this has already commenced. I know my options are limited.

1. My van is the 02 fuel spider in plenum type. Was there ever a factory supercharger for these models?
2. Are there any really good aftermarket ones?
3. Should I just put headers on it with a JET chip and call it good?

I know these questions may be repetitive from other posts. So thanks in advance for taking the time to chime in!

Arizona doesn't seem like it would be a problem with emissions.

Nope.

Depends on what you are looking for.

The gains from that is no where near what forced induction would give you, so depends on what you want.

Interested in a turbo?

Astrowill,
Thanks for the concise answer. I was able to do some basic shopping around and did not find any kits available. I suppose a custom kit could be put together from Paxton. Agreed, a Jet chip and headers will only create meager gains in comparison to forced induction.

I had not explored turbo options. Seems like I have plenty of room. Is there a kit available, or can you point me in the right direction for more research?

The emissions issue stemmed from my knowledge of options. In Pima County, Az. they scan the ECU for any codes whatsoever. No MIL indicators pending or set can be in. I was not aware how to interface the fuel injection system of a V8 conversion to that of the V6 ECU and ensure that no codes would be set.

There are some kits for the S-10 which might be able to make fit. Turbo options are limited if you have AWD, but could work with a lift or a front mount or rear mount turbo.

As far as the emissions concerns with a v8 swap, you change the engine and the PCM to that of the donor vehicle, the best is to keep it the same year or newer just in case you move to a more restrictive area.

A little late now but your research had a flaw.
Now the turbo or supercharger? Seems to me that would involve more than just swapping the computer.

You really have problems with passing and hills? My stock engine 89, loaded with stuff or otherwise, can accellerate up I-17 to Sunset Point if asked. It drives faster than I want to drive going up B-Line to Payson. And that's with 2.32 rear end and 31" tires.

Sure your tune status is ok? Or are you just looking for a tire chirper?

Yes, it is, sorry. 3.23 rear end.

Wouldn't swapping out rear end gears to something shorter be easier than trying to force induction? Granted, you'll loose the highway mileage some, but the extra leverage will allow the engine to not struggle as hard and probably get better mileage all around....
A temporary fix usually becomes a permanent solution, therefore it does not exist.

there are a few different thing one can do such as have a custom 2.5 inch single exhaust with a better breathing muffler (such as a thrush turbo which in flow tests flow better then flowmaster) install a better air cleaner set up or air intake as some call them. Have a custom chip burned or have it tuned in some cases. if you do these then you may wish to use mid grade or high test gasoline. You could possibly look into a set of modified heads and camshaft. Main point is a supercharger or turbo has good points but the engine must be built for either of them to gain the most safely you can just bolt one of them on but you won't see big gains without the right cam or fuel system or even better cylinder heads.

Superchargers! Now your talking MY language! Nothing compares!

This is the supercharged engine in my G10 van. The older motor (in photo) is a 400 (also supercharged in van at one time)... and the replacement motor was a new modified 502. Still have everything!

Engines Both.jpg


Here's a quick video of my supercharged small block just before it was replaced with the 502:

I'm going to see if the small block B&M supercharger will fit and work with the serpentine belt system in my Astro. :D

Thanks Maher!

The supercharged big block won't fit practically in the Astro.. but the supercharged small block might! We'll know soon. I have to pull my 350 due to a very minor head gasket issue... I've been waiting for weather to cool down.

It will be a quick out and back in... possibly same weekend, or two at most. While I have it out... I have some serious performance headers to test fit, as well as the supercharger. If it fits... I may put it in. Still undecided. I thought about throwing the 400 in also, but it's not ready and I don't need that much power. I do need a little more stall converter too, while it's all apart.

But I'm kind of liking the fact the V8 is perfect already! ... with little worry about breaking things! But having several superchargers over many years... I've also learned to live peacefully and nicely with them. :D

We'll see....

Lump, chirping the tires would be nice, however, you may be on to something with the tune. I have not checked, as all is factory....or new Oreilly and Merles parts right now. Granted the crate motor may loosen up with a few more mile on it.

Suggestions on checking the tune? Do you mean a chip/programmer?
Thanks!

Yep....been considering that too. In fact, the more I'm catching up with posts on the forum it may make the most all-round sense for tackling hills and 'around town'.

markmitch,
You nail down some great facts. Yes, now that you mention it.....that is indeed a chicken/egg problem. Right now I put a magnaflow muffler on it and eliminated the resignator. So, I've got factory manifolds with down pipes into the factory cat. the rest is 2.25" out the back. I checked into the camshaft/heads when considering building the original 4.3L. Unfortunately, I chose to save 2K in costs by going with the 100K warranted crate motor.

So your point on not maximizing the investment of either the supercharger or turbo without the proper prep work is well taken.
