    It will make the "engine" more noisy, but mainly due to the sound of broken rods and detached pistons.. ;D j/k

    A supercharger itself won't make the exhaust louder and it won't make the engine sound any better.. The only difference in sound will be the blower "whine" or "whistle" depending on blower style.. Your exhaust is where your "sound" is hidden at..

    thanks. any suggestions on making a 2.8 v6 engine sound louder? i believe that someone said that even the best exhausts such as the real lambo exhausts, borlas, etc wont make any differences in a stock 2.8 v6 engine. is that correct? any suggestions?

    thanks those are pretty nice, but i guess its a 3800 fiero engine? i wont be able to get that out of mine new rebuilt 2.8 v6 engine. but i do like this sound here from a 2.8v6 1988 fiero with a formula exhaust. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ieg5s...eature=related
    i guess thats the best i can do with what i have. so is it just the specail exhaust which gets this sound? or other modifacations was also done?

    Buy a supercharger unit for the 2.8V6. It will whine just like the 3800, and boost your engine 80HP, raising the stock V6 to 220HP. Not to shabby

    will it overheat on normal driving conditions? and the will the sound be louder? or just the whine will sound better but not louder? sorry for all the questions, but as you know im not a builder so i dont know anything about how to put things together.

    I've heard you can turbo the 2.8 for around $1000.

    Or blow it! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y9yKs...eature=related

    More Power equals more heat, nothing a bigger all aluminum rad cant fix. With Blowers/superchargers there is the static compression ratio (engine compression ratio) and Dynamic compression ratio because as the boost increase the compression ratio increases and the exhaust note. An engine with the compression ratio of 9.5 to 1 with just 16 pounds of boost becomes 19.8 to 1
    There are alot of things to consider... your stock parts will not handle anything above 4-5 pounds, ignition timing, total cubic displacement, cam timing , valve sizes, head port dimensions and so on.
