Twin Turbo Camaro

Hey Guys,

I just watched this video on youtube which seems pretty legitimate (did I just say that?). It's a G8 GT with that had a Twin Turbo dropped in it, new exhaust and tires and it dramatically affected the car's hp and quarter mile time.

Check it out (they dyno it also):



Now I love my cars but mechanically, I'm nowhere near educated as some of you on here. What's the possibilities and limitations of doing this for the camaro? Is this even possible of the V6? Or just pointless. I don't know, enlighten me.

Victory

With enough money anything is possible .. Usually companies will come out with kits that are made for the cars .. I know APS got 530rwhp out of a G8 GXP on 6psi (TURBO) ..

Yes. There's no reason you can't do it. To even get started, expect to spend around $8k and if nothing goes wrong during the build, you'd be rocking socks.

Turbo is a ton of fun on a torquey V8, but as MerF said, be sure that you have the financial means to do it. The parts/kits are expensive, installation will be expensive, you'll go through more gas, and you'll have maintenance issues. Generally I would say a turbo LSx car is for folks rich enough to pay someone else for every issue without worrying about it, or the moderately well-off who are good mechanics to work on it themselves.

Do what? Put a TT on the V6? Because i think the dudes asking if he could put THAT twin turbo thats in the video on the V6, and i dont think so. Its designed to mount on the V8. And correct me if im wrong, but i havent heard of anyone offering a TT for the V6 just yet.

The engine (LLT) probably wouldn't mind a moderate turbo setup in the ball park of 4-7 PSI. It's got forged internals already, but it has a high compression ratio. The Direct Injection bypasses much of the danger of detonation, and GM makes a turbo DI version of the motor in the saab 9-3 (2.8L DI VVT Turbo) so it can be done. Where I think your biggest limitations will come in modifying the six is the drivetrain. The Aisin is nowhere near as beefy as the Tremec in the LS3 car. If you got much above 375 horses with your LLT you may run into some reliability problems in the clutch, tranny, rear end or all three. This is my 'educated' guess though. I don't know what the driveline components in the LLT cars are actually spec'ed at.

Good, good info. You think GMPP will offer a turbo? That would sure take some worry out of the whole drivetrain concern.

No idea man. Probably not. But you never know. No doubt if they don't the aftermarket will.
