Default Possible Supercharged V6

So i recently bought a 09 SBM V6 G8 and was looking into forced induction.. something im going to put together over winter. I want to add blower on seperate serpentine system as not to overload the important stuff.. ie. w/p, alt, ps.. so i was thinking that a CTS pulley might be a good start.. Stock G8 V6 pulleyand CTS pulley what do you think?

we had the buick 3.8 V6 factory supercharger in the mid '90s, the engines are good new but don't age well, n/a engines always lasted longer.

I'd say look into a custom turbo set up... Making a custom manifold for the V6 might be possible, but boost is boost.

The main issue still is there of the transmission only handling up to 350hp, or so I've read. Either way, I'm quite interested in where you go here.

3800 Series II Supercharged motor (L67) was a very good motor. Lasted longer than the N/A motors actually, because of the recalled intake on the N/A motor.

Well.. couple reasons. 1 i love the color and car.. 2 got a really good deal on the car.. 3 insurance is cheaper on a 6 popper.. and finally i just like to be different... i have a 1980 camaro if i want to drive a v8.. plus as a bonus, its fun being the underdog and winning..

I would be concerned about the tranny issue, if true.
350 ain't a whole lot.
