The title says it all. I was wondering if there is a donor car that has an automatic transmission with a supercharger?

A supercharger is a (relatively) easy add, if you buy a suitable 2.2 donor.
so what's your take on putting a supercharger on an engine that didn't have a supercharger on it do you think i'll end up with a blown engine in a few months would you do anything before putting the engine in the car ?

Ss with a 2.4 and auto. Add supercharger. The 2.4 is one of the strongest engines internally. Charging them is not a big deal. Look up Joebob’s build thread. He has done it in his goblin. Fairly common In the ecotec world

The M62 supercharger(stock Cobalt supercharger) will not add enough power to hurt a 2.2L or 2.4L Ecotec. A basic setup will only bump the power up to ~215whp give or take a few which is well below the breaking point of those engines.

GM offered the M62 as a dealer add on kit for the 2003-2005 Chevrolet Cavalier and Pontiac Sunfire. Also Cavalier and Sunfire owners have been installing that kit themselves as well as Cobalt SS/SC "take off" kits for around 20 years now. It has been a decently common and proven modification. Myself personally have helped multiple friends install the supercharger onto their 2.2L Cavaliers/Sunfires and have ran the M62 supercharger on my 2003 Cavalier with a stock engine before being one of the 1st to upgrade to the Harrop HTV1320-LSJ TVS supercharger in their Cavalier/Sunfire.

Keep in mind that a bad tune can destroy a stock engine, but a good one can allow an engine to live past its limit. Again my personal Cavalier has been tuned with HP Tuners by a friend who has proven his talents and has allowed my stock engine to survive for years at the ~300hp area which is where the stock engine's limit is.
