I also have a 79 which I supercharged. You can find it here: Rebuilding and Supercharging 3.0L

If you go low boost (about 6 psi) no intercooler is needed. It certainly makes the car a lot more fun to drive. I have a whipple and there isn't a significant whine. I actually like the sound it makes when it engages. It is driven by a serpentine belt.

With the EFI setup, you have a good way of controlling the engine so you are way ahead of the game for a boosting application, whether turbo or supercharged.
1979 SC, Slant nose wide-body cab conversion. AEM Infinity EFI. (Whipple Supercharger currently off for rebuild)
