Theoretically speaking, if a M90 supercharger was to find its way on top of the 3.9L engine on my 96 ram 1500, how unhappy would the stock engine management be?I have a sawsall and a welder I can make anything fit anything, but neither of those too toys do anything for computers.Yes a v8 would be an easy swap but it wouldnt whine.

I put a supercharger on a 2008 Mustang GT and it freaked the stock computer out.

No sir. It wasn't mine. It was a customer's car. I later rectified the problem with a new standalone ECU. I used to work at a custom shop that installed hi performance parts and suspension components for 4x4's and low riders before being the proprietor of my own speed shop.

I lol'd. Thank you.

And yes, computers are very specific. If you introduce a new factor, one it was not programmed to understand, the computer will shit a brick.
My old roommate put a $30 ebay "chip" on his car, which was basically just designed to confuse the car into thinking it needs more fuel and air, and I'm not saying it didn't give him a wink more power, but he did eventually get sick of his dash having every available trouble light on.
