A Custom SC setup is easy...but going through the fabbing costs, you may as well buy what's there already and upgrade it, or just build a turbo.
SC setups are easy. I and a friend fabbed up one for his car a few years back. There was room on the pulley side of the engine, so we didn't need a jackshaft of any type. The brackets were made from metal we cut and welded, and the hoses were measured and mocked up with flex pipes and brought to a muffler shop for some real piping.
This a return systemed OBD1 car, so getting the basic fuel system upgrades with an adjustible FPR to raise fuel at idle and a FMU (boost controlled) to raise fuel pressure at boost. An ATI procharger was used.
Kit in total cost the car owner about $2000, but he had all the tools needed and access to lifts. And I just lent a hand in installing and fitting the kit.
I keep forgetting to reply to this post. I have the prints to put a Procharger on a coog. with a FMIC . The charger is on the pulley side B/C there is just enough room to put a belt upthrough there. There is a little fab work to do with A/C lines but other than that you don't have to relocate the battery or anything.
