Is this a good turbo for V6 ???

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/JDM-S...Q5fAccessories

Would it fit the v6 camaro. And is this a quality turbo kit. If this doesnt fit what turbo kits that are out would fit the v6 camaro.

you should wait until the car actually comes out and aftermarket companies get their hands on it.
Only then will anyone know for sure.

Labor varies, and I've never had one installed....but the average Turbo kit will usually run you anywhere from $4,000-$6,000, depending on the manufacturer, and vehicle it's designed for. Twin-Turbo kits (if you care) can get in the $8,000-$10,000 range.

for over $20,000, the turbo is a better choice. Unless you want to overkill.

Which is never bad.

Whenever a turbo kit claims its universal, stay away.

Any turbo will fit any car, with the right amount of skill and money. So the short answer is yes this will fit. How easy and how much? no one will know for sure until the car is out in people hands. Seeing as thats advertised for a mustang the plumbing (all the pipes and lines) are probably made to kinda fit in a mustang engine bay, a crappy fit most likely.

Either find a kit specifically made for the car (there are none yet, but there will be...)

OR

be prepared to have to do the ENTIRE install custom if need be.
