Yes, you can replace the pulley. Keep in mind, look at the other surrounding parts and replace any that may seem warn as you are taking the assembly apart make sure you won't have to do the job twice if other parts look like they are worn.

you can not put a regular 3800 intake in place of the 3800 super charged engine,the compression ratio is lower than the regular 3800 engine.......!

no. But the only thing a under crank pulley performance is, is the gap and lightweight material used. You can go to custom shops and they can machine it for you under $200. dont know why you would want that. It really does not increase that much performance. But if you have the supercharged model than you can also try to look it up by other engines just like yours. Lot of cars have the same model engine. For instance
1986-1995 pontiac bonneville, oldsmobile delta royale, buick lesabre, oldsmobile toronado, buick regency. Lot of engines out there have the same specs, but might be available in performance parts under those names.
good Luck! if it's not supercharged just get the Kit!
they will customize anything from cams to harmonic balancers/crank pulleys.

If memory is correct it should be driven by the serpentine belt, which runs through one of the engine mounts.
To change the belt you'll need to support the engine (by something other than the oil pan) and pull the engine mount.
== here is another opinion== First you have to remove the belt to the alternator then you can remove the belt to the supercharger. To do this you will need a 19/32" socket and breakerbar or long ratchet.
Put ratchet on belt tensioner nut and pull toward front of car then pull belt off. There is a separate tensioner for each belt.
I hope this helps and since your doing all that work might as well sevice the supercharger too which is always forgotten.
You can buy a superchaarger lubricant from the dealer or, according to the manual. You can use synthetic 10W30 weight oil, which is a much cheaper route.
The filler is a small plug located at the bottom of the goose neck of the supercharger. You need an allen wrench to unscrew it. The oil should be up to the bottom of the threads for the screw plug.
Good luck and hope this helps. Dubble check though, i had a long day.
