there are aftermarket supercharger kits available for the V-8s, you can go that route. But if you mean just dropping the supercharger from the V-6 SC straight onto one of the V-8s, no, that wont fly. I suppose you could use the supercharger itself and fabricate an entire manifold and intake tract, but that doesnt sound like any fun to me.

"A stock 3.8 NA will usually run around 17.5-17.9 which is really pathetic if you ask me. True, your car only weight about 3600 pounds, but it's also only got about 125rwhp." - THOMAS

YEAR CAR 0-60 1/4 Mile

1996 Honda Civic EX Sedan 10.5 17.6
1996 Honda Civic LX Sedan 9.4 17.2
1999 Honda Civic Si 7.2 15.7
1998 Hyundai Tiburon FX 8.4 16.5
1999 Mazda Miata 7.9 15.9
1994 Mazda MX-6 LS 7.6 15.8
1998 Nissan Altima 8.2 16.4

That thread was great. Yeah it is kind of pathetic, but it's also easy to change that.

A ten second mn12 has never been done (to my knowledge) but it's getting very close. It sure is a lot of work and it takes a lot of money and dedication, more on the money side for people who go to shops for most of the work, more on the dedication side for those do-it-yourselfers because these cars aren't known for engine bay roominess.
