400 rw hp Turbo Kit for V6 - Anyone Interested?
 
We are considering offering a bolt-on single turbo system capable of delivering 400 rw hp on 93 octane pump gas.

This is not a solicitation to sell these kits or take orders. However, if I were to answer the question on price, I would say that we would target to sell the kit for under $6,000.

We are simply trying to see how much interest there would be for something like this. I am sure there are going to be a lot of questions and suggestions. I appologize in advance if I am not able to respond to everyone, but I will try to answer as much as I can.

One of the first questions is, why single and not twin? Answer: Cost. We can make the power with a single turbo and keep the cost down.

$6k on top of a v6 (non-LS) will get you within $500-$1k of the price of an SS...To sell these, I think you'll have to make that gap a little bit bigger.

i say offer it, a lot of people will buy the V6 and then one day will want something more, so a drop in would be the best option, not everyone has $34000 to put down all at once. They might be able to afford the V6 and then the parts later on. Sounds like a great package. If i were you, id offer a TT as well eventually, for those who are willing to do it. Or a supercharger? any performance parts are needed as of now!

I would actually be very interested. But I'm still skeptical on the single..how much more would a twin cost?

almost double (as far as production costs go). you'd have 2 turbos, 2 waste gates, significantly more piping, 2 custom manifolds instead of 1, 2 air filters...

see where this is going?

I would rather have a turbo than a SC and under 6k, hell of a deal!

I would love it. I'm one of those guys who could only afford a V6 as of now but after a few years would love to turbo it to gain more power. Please produce!

you could do like i am with the truck - drop a V8 in it, much cheaper than FI... but then again, i already have the same suspension, brakes, & all the same as a V8 - not exactly the same story with the camaro

To achieve 400rwhp on the SS cars, you'll need headers and a tune - figure a grand easy on top of the purchase price on the car.

400rwhp in a car that weighs 200lbs less and retains it's driving manors while off boost is lots of fun.


I'm assuming 6K is for the shop-install and tune. I worry far more about the 6L50 transmission than I do the engine.

the difference is 100 lbs. and adding a turbo will that shrink that weight difference even more.

While a single will add a bit of weight on the nose, there more than 100lbs difference between the 6's and 8's. The race weight of most SS's is right around the 2 ton mark from early reports...(ouch!) Either way you slice it... this entire platform are filled with piggies. Never thought I'd find a car that made my 3000GT's seem light by comparison LOL.

Well im looking for the SC..I think the turbos sound kinda funny to many..Anyways i feel if u had a 45 to 55 range it would perk my intrest if i was a turbo person...

NickG85 07-09-2009 09:05 PM

I would be in for the single turbo if I had the money which I will soon.
And ya does the 6000k include install and tune?

trudawg660 07-09-2009 09:08 PM

there is no doubt about it am going to get a turbo. i would want a twin though.....depending on the pricing.
