I haven't seen any gen 4 mp62 or gen 5 m62 on a 3800 at all. Andrew (Karma) is the man to really ask though. Maybe He'll step in.

The cobalts have the gen 5 and with the exception of the intercooler, they are set up pretty much like the blowers on the 3800. I would think either one would be just as much work to fit to an L67.

I was just curious if anyone had ever tried it really, But i suppose it wouldn't work just like putting the supercharger from a 94 or 95 series 1 on a 93 or older series 1

I looked at those awhile back. The MP designation is just for it being the design from Magnuson, who is the only company licensed to duplicate Eaton's blowers and improve on them.

The latest M62 blower ever stuck on a GM production car was on the Cobalt as Codith said, but it had a cast and much longer intake, making it about 1.5 times longer than a gen5 m90.

A few people have aftermarketed to the MP latest generation of blowers offered by Magnuson on various cars and from what I hear they kick ass for efficiency rivaled only by the new Eaton TVS system. But they are expensive. And if you were going to get one anyway, just get their MP90 since its really a better sized blower for the 3.8 liter engine. Magnuson lets you choose whatever snout length you want, so you could buy an mp90 from them with the short snout length of the m62 if you wanted to make matching to the series one engine.

And as far as ease of install, well, you would have to custom do the throttle body connections as well and the mating to the LIM. Not too bad since you can custom the snout length, but fabrication none-the-less.
