replacing motor

I have a 2008 pontiac g6 base model. Im looking to replace the motor with the 3800 pontiac g6 motor. and i was looking to see if anyone has done this and how difficult it would to be switch it over? If not i wanna do a supercharger. I know this can be done because the grand prix have a supercharger on it. Any ideas?

The g6 didn't come with the 3800. Only the 2.4; 3.5; 3.6; and 3.9.
A motor swap is always possible but requires money. You'll likely have to swap over the PCM and then make sure it'll still communicate with the BCM.
Which engine does yours have now? The 4 Banger actually has a lot more aftermarket support than the V6s.

I'm sure you can still get the 3.8 engine in there but it'll some more custom work to get it all working right.
