the supercharger is shot. I was told i could bypass the charger by putting
on a belt for the same car by using a belt that is for one without the
supercharger. Is this possible to do without doing further damage to the
I don't see why it wouldn't be possible except that without the
supercharger you will have an engine that barely moves. I would think
that they lowered the compression quite a bit to make up for the extra
air that the supercharger puts in. You should check on the
specifications before thinking about running the engine normally
aspirated out on the road.
As to the question at hand, you might need a complete accessory mount
system from a donor car to make it right. Again you need to look into
the design specs before possibly wasting money on changing the engine
over to normally aspirated.

IIRC, the comp. ratio on the supercharged engine was only 1/2 point
below the non-supercharged version--kinda like 8.0:1 vs. 8.5:1. Heard some
people claiming to run regular vs. premium due to its lower comp. ratio!!!
