Yes, you can, but only when the car is new.  I think it smells great :)
After about a week or 2 it is gone.
 But IMHO, it's not worth the extra $$$.  Furthermore,

They are there for 2.8, just a tad more costly.  I will be getting the
supercharger for my car to the tune of slightly more than $4k, but then I
will have 280hp and 262lbs of torque :)   all at a moderate 5.5 lbs of boost
with no turbo lag.
