Turbo System for 2012 V6?

Hey all,
I was wondering what there is in the way of turbos for the LFX motor, seeing that the headers are built somewhat into the engine, STS turbos' site says it is for 2010-2011 models, do I have any options? also, would I be better off upgrading my V6 2LT RS or running a bone stock 2SS RS Vert? thanks for the input!

Thank our veterans for peace today, Support our troops for peace tomorrow. RIP Dad, 1962-2012 SYOTOS

There are not many V6 owners that have done the turbo, since the supercharger is cheaper and easier to install, but on the LFX the turbos can work great and will get you a more powerful setup if setup and tuned correctly. If you want it to remain super reliable you could still easily push 400 - 450 or so HP at the wheels...maybe more.

But just so you know, it can go much further. We have one member here with an LFX and twin turbo setup who switched out some internal parts with stronger stuff and he has hit almost 600 horse at the rear wheels. GretchenGotGrowl is the membere here. Hit him up for more info.
5th gen IS SOLD! 6th gen built 10/14!!! Can't wait!!

Cadillac have a Twin turbo LF3 in the 2014 car, lots of talk about a Camaro version also. I'd probably wait.
