Florida owners, check this out!

I've been doing a lot of research into various companies, and inquiring about turbo and supercharger production. It's taken a while, and some had considered it, and other were too busy filling the V8 orders. Well, over the last several years, I had been heavily involved in turbocharged imports, main Eclipses. And I always dealt with one particular manufacturer that has always impressed, and has not once let me down. Well I decided to email them, kind of a long shot and it appears that they definitely want to expand their market to the V6 Camaros!

So far, they have already produced quality systems for Cobalts, the 4.6 Mustang, all kinds of imports, Audi's, Volkwagens, and motorcycles. And it pleases me to know that, another contender has stepped up to the plate to take on this challenge!

Anyway, Their shop relocated to the Gainesville / Ocala region, and they are looking for someone that will loan them a car for a day, to take a look at. From there, they'll ask if you would want to let them borrow the car, so that they can do some mock ups.

I have been talking with the owner, and his ideal setup would include a twin turbo system, but would most likely offer a single turbo system as well. If any of you guys would like to get in on this, PM me and i'll direct you to the right people.

Unlike the other companies that flaked, I have confidence in these guys. If they hadn't relocated, I would have been all over this. We can probably get a real nice group buy going as well. Let me know!

Last word I heard from you, you were having transmission issues and cussing your car, threatening to lemon-law it and trade it in for a mudstain. This is all you need, a turbo in front of all your issues pushing it 'til it really blows up. Then it'll be everybody's fault but your own.

Give me a break.

If you're having transmission issues, this will completely void that warranty and if something happens, the cost is on you.

Easy fellas!

This is great news! (Well, not for me..since I'm not in Florida lol) but cool nontheless.

I'd definitely put a post up in the florida reginal section as well.

It is KMPrenger, lol. Best part, it wont be rear mount, most likely cheaper, and they've been buildings turbo systems for over 20 years. Would gladly give my car to them if it wasnt so far away.

Right. I'll jump off. When you trade that bowtie in for your blue oval turd. Every other post from you is how your car is falling apart and how you're going to lemon law it and trade it in on that blue oval turd. You posted just days ago how you were going to. Trade it in already and stop whining.

And if you can't tell I'm not YOUR buddy.

Is it Hahn racecraft? Their reputation precedes them in the turbo world..primarily the Mitsu market with the super g series turbos..only downfall is their kits generally are expensive.

Yep. My old 99 Eclipse GS-T 450Hp, powered by Hahn. Some of the kits can be expensive yes, but worth it, given the quality and engineering.

When Bill Hahn told me he was envisioning a turbo kit for the Camaro, I was about as giddy as a schoolgirl.

There's no doubt they do impressive work..I don't care for his locked tunes, and I hope they dont use the flying saucer for fuel management on this one like they did the last vvt HO motor.

Read his posts. If he wants sympathy he can call his mom. I won't let him say some of the crap he's said and think he's getting any respect. These guys don't want to put a turbo in front of a trans that's "suspect" and need to know who they're dealing with beforehand. At any moment he's liable to lemon law it or trade it in. If the install didn't work out just right he's liable to come on here bad-mouthing them. I agree that when his car went in for the extended stay he should've gotten a loaner from the dealer(no question). They didn't refuse to sell him the car because he wasn't over 25 so why refuse to ensure the customer is taken care of because his car is in the shop getting warranty work done. His beef all along should've been with the way he was being treated by the dealer. Instead he brought it here saying he was going to trade it in on what he said he was.

Give it a rest.

Hahn has been making great turbos kits for a long time. If this happens we will be truly blessed. But Mike is right.. Those kits are top dollar.

SDCamaro10 I live in the Orlando area as well. I am really interested to see what they cna do. hopefully we can get the tune right seeing it as that seems to be the V6's biggest hurdle.

Mach -

B1urr - PM sent. There a few that have already PM'd me, and im forwarding all the info back to Hahn.

They're looking at the 2011's, so those with the 2011's may fair better if and when they pick someone to stop by their facilities. I really do hope this comes to life, this will bring some very stiff competition to STS!

Trying hard not to get my hopes up, lol.

Why not use a C5 supporting vendor with the same experiance but more geared toward the GM crowd? Several of us have been doing this for years and have far more experiance than the ricers do.
