LFX Manifold, turbo charger bolt on.

Im just going to throw this out there for discussion because I have not found any information regarding my view about the LFX manifold seaming to have a near perfect flange for bolting on a turbo charger, also seams like a perfect location as you can direct the exhaust straight down with plenty of room for other necessary air pipes. What do you think?

I wonder if any manufacturer or gm is looking into direct bolt on kits to create the twin turbo LFX.

Can you find anything that will fit without relocating a lot of stuff? We couldn't figure out how to do it, but we sure wanted to. No scavenge pump, better ground clearance, so on. I hope someone can figure out how to do it, but it just looks like the perfect way to bolt on some power.

I could see someone building a adapter plate for the flange or manufacturing the turbo with a matched flange and maybe angling it accordingly if needed i don't imagine it would be to hard with the proper equipment/machining tools. something i do not have and my wife would not be to happy if i started wrenching on her brand new Camaro, lol im just hoping somone comes out with it so that by time i got some milleage on the car ill become more brave to wrench it.

Also i can see this type of system reducing the costs over the current systems as i will not require as much labor and material.

Has to be the right turbo to actually fit, things get tight around the ole snails.

I hope so. I doubt GM will want to deal with scavenge pump issues.

Getting shipped down.

The storms have all the transporter's are delaying due to the snow storms that have lashed the midwest or it would already be here. They want to charge an outrageous "bad weather fee"

I thought the same thing when I saw the single pipe coming out of the head. Very interested to see what happens.
