Default Can you supercharge a stock 96 Acura 3.5 RL?

I want to throw a super charger in there but I don't know if my car can take it.

Before you waste anymore time - See if there even is a blower that will fit.

3.5 rl if im not mistaken is around a 10:1 compression ratio.. rated around 210 hp.. it is comfortable compression to handle any kind of light force induction with out any serious internal re-enforments such as lower compression pistons and rods.. as all these smaller 1.6 -1.8 honda engines have similar compressions and can handle a 6-8 psi with a good tune. to answer your question i dont see a problem with it..however you may want to look into a j32 swap, found in the acura tl its a 3.2 liter but producing 260hp.. with the little to no market for the 3.5 engines.. i think if you could find a super charger kit or have one pieced together, you'll have more money into it, compared to a j32 swap.. and would be making very similar hp numbers.. rated at 260 hp and with a couple simple basic bolt on performance parts and a good tune, i dont see why you couldnt make 300+ crank hp...

Don't wast your money that would be crazy ,we work to hard for it ,it will be a money pit if you add forced induction to your RL,,,its probably already a money pit ,,save the money for buying a newer car , ,good luck
