All the talk about turbos for V6

With all the talk about turbo and twin turbo, which am very interested in. what kind of power gains would their be to expect.

trying not to show my ignorance too much.

on stock motor a good system would get you 550+ rwhp!! thats around 7-8ilbs of boost. more can easily be had but internals will be a restricition.

I dont think the internals will be much of a resriction, just octane.

Honestly though, depending on how you option your turbo system the sky is the limit.

If we buy one to be the shop mule, I will be happy in the mid 450's to 500whp mark on pump gas.
Once the block shows what the limits are I suspect sleeving it with a darton MID kit + rods and pistons will allow big power. Like 800whp and above on racefuel.

Youtube a supra with a nice single. Then turn it up, close your eyes and imagine being behind the wheel of your 1LT....

Stepping stones.
A base kit w/2860's can support 700+ on the ragged edge. But at lower boost 10-15 psi it should get the LLT up to around 550 flywheel. 550 wheel will be pushing your luck on pump gas.
But it's all the same kit doing the job. Later on as you pay the car down and get used to the power you can upgrade.

Pistons + rods +studs+ high boost is your "stage 2" and you didnt even change turbo hardware.
Swap the snails to something like a gt3071R-WG and you can support up to 1000 flywheel before you have to jump turbo flange size.

That's because they are aluminum most of the time. Paint doesn't dessipate heat as well.

A light dusting of flat black is usually okay. It's high emissivity seems to offset the way it coats the face of the chargecooler.

I think you might create a "thermal event" doing it that way.

It won't melt -- your IC surface temps aren't going to get anywhere near hot enough, in addition to it (the hose) being super thin it cools damn near instantly.

I've done this on several cars... easy way to hide it from those you're trying to hustle in a street race

I was more worried about the back end of it catching fire from the close proximity to the radiator but...

Still not something I would do.

Nah -- you stretch it over the surface of the fmic, tie it off in the back. Trust me, I never had any problems with it The camaro has ample room in the nose for a FMIC setup, probably a good 3-4" pf spacing between the ic and the radiator easy.

Scuffing up an aluminum rad and dusting with a light coat of black spray paint also works.... just don't use ceramic paint (lol... that brings back some interesting thread memories). It doesn't take much to black out a IC... but I doubt you'd even see it on a camaro.

I am not up to speed on alot of the modifications either, so I appreciate those who try to explain this to me.

If and when these kits come out for the Turbo, that usually doesn't cover install correct. So what is the difficulty in installing this??

The install is pretty involved. You really need to knwo what youre doing. It's probably gonna run you about two grand to get it installed at a shop from what I've heard. So add that to the probably six grand you're gonna drop on the kit. Plus from what I've heard you need to upgrade various parts of the engine that won't come in the kit. So I'm guessing you're looking at at leastt $8000-$9000. LOT of money to drop. Good thing I have four years to save up and let the richer folks blow their engines experimenting before me

Installation actually isnt all that bad, I've installed a few turbo kits on my old car. The only thing that sucked was that there wasnt a whole lot of room to work with, but if you find a kit that is direct bolt on and all the piping is made to fit your application, it wont be all that hard. I advise taking it to a shop if you havent done it before though. On averarge, it took me about 4-5 hours to install. The tuning is a different battle, since i used a AFC tune, instead of a OBD tune. The shops i've dealt with usually charged anywhere 1,000 to 2,000 for install depending on the kit you get, single or twin, and the accessibility of your engine. Right now, with the turbo kits just coming to the market, you can expect to pay anywhere from 4,000 to 6,000 for a decent kit. Give it a few years and save some money and you could most likely find the same kit for 1,500 not on ebay.

I know it's bad form to criticize something small from such an old thread, but... wouldn't painting an intercooler black be doing your mods more for appearance than performance, AKA the very definition of rice?

Maybe my understanding of rice is wrong, but it is my understanding that ricing is an aesthetic mod that is meant to look or sound like performance (with little to no actual performance gain), and is usually over the top for the car that it is being added to.

Think of it this way, you didn't buy the Camaro strictly for the power, did you? Nothing wrong with wanting your performance parts to look good as long as your not hindering the performance of the part you are adding.
