The trick with a 3800 FWD > RWD swap is the supercharger inlet. You need to find a supercharger (and maybe a lower intake manifold) from a Holden.

VQ35s have "rear entry" intake manifolds. It shouldn't be hard to do a J pipe to get the intake around to where it needs to be.

Not giving a shit can cure lots of things..

Unfortunately I'm a little ocd even about small things such as tiny micro scratches on my paint..

After thorough analysis they found most Nissan owners prefer rear entry

Typically people are converting from an N/A 3800 in an F body to a SC 3800 which was only ever sold in FWD here. The F body has no room back there for such a bend, and aussie blowers have the bend built into them. There may be enough room under the hood here depending on engine location.

But the 3800 is a heavy engine, it's a 90 degree V6 with a balance shaft, iron block, heads, etc. For the cost they're great at making stupid power, but if you can swing it, an LSx engine is lighter, not much larger, will go a lot further power wise, and is easier to get into RWD applications.
