1990 Oldsmobile 88 3.8L V6 supercharged from North America
A high performance sedan
CV Joints don't last very long.
Rotors always find a way to get warped.
Overall, not much has gone wrong, other than the stuff you need to regularly change/replace.
6 months after I bought the car, a buddy of mine was scrapping his 1990 Bonneville and was selling it for parts, so I got the supercharger from it and fitted it to my Delta 88, also took the wheels and seats, although the seets did not fit, now I pull up to a stop light and can smoke T-birds and Stangs. Once raced a Corvette, didn't beat him but managed to some what keep up.
Overall this car was a nice investment.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Can you explain how you did the supercharger conversion on a web site?
Because I'm thinking of doing that with my "super sleeper" four-door Delta 88.

Could you explain what all was required to do the conversion (supercharger)? If so, mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org

Pontiac did not supercharge the Bonneville until 1992 with the SSEi.

I was also wondering about the supercharger thing. I have a 1989 Eighty-Eight, and was thinking about trying to find a supercharger from a Bonneville, if at all possible. So, along with e-mailing this other guy here, e-mail me too.

Ya, tell me about the supercharger too.

If any of you read this any time soon, please send me the info on the supercharger install too, please.
My E-mail is Broel2000@aol.com.
If anyone has any intake or exhaust mod information please tell about that too. Thank you.

I am also interested in this, as my '90 Olds D88 is nearing 300,000 km, I'm contemplating an engine rebuild, and a supercharger would be a nice addition. It's been a while since I've seen a supercharged 3800 Series I, I'm damn sure it wouldn't take much to convert an old bonnie 'charger over, but the details would be nice - my email is TacticalVirus@hotmail.com and I would be sincerely grateful if you would explain the details.

If any one has successfully supercharged an 89 delta 88 (3800), could you write the procedure as a comment in the reviews please. I want to put a supercharger off of a 94 Bonneville on my Delta, but don't want to mess anything up. Thanx.
