Can a 3800 Supercharged V6 Swap work on 98 Malibu with a 3100 Motor?

I really would like an answer to this question. If so, What all would be required to do so? Is there a more suitable Engine for a swap like this?

I do not think they used a 3.8 in any "N" bodied GM cars.
That swap would be seriously time consuming, and In my opinion not worth the bother.
All the "N" bodies used a 4 cylinder or the 3100.... IIRC

Tuners

I like tuners, and I like having somthing different. People say there cars aren't ment to be modified but if you ask me neither are Honda's or Mitsubishi's. Yet people do it all the time. I'm in no way that mechanically inined especially since there aren't a lot of bolt on part's for these vehicles. My car overheats, and I had over $1,500 into making it not overheat. It worked about a week, then started overheating again. The oil and coolant haven't mixed, so the block shouldn't be cracked. What can cause this? How can I fix it? What are my best tooning options? Do I have any?
