Twin turbo for the 2010 V6 Camaro

Just saw the SCAP’s twin turbo for the V6 Camaro. And there's no prices yet. You guys got any guesses.

Thumbs up

I would get in contact with Turbonetics. They are the company making the turbos for the V6. And, they make a killer turbo!!
GOOD LUCK!

I would think a supercharger would be cheaper. With the turbo setup you would have the two turbos and the special exhaust manifolds feeding them. With a supercharger it would probably be a setup like vortechs.

In general turbo kits are usually more expensive than supercharger kits. Twin turbos even more....

Other thing to remember... things that show up at SEMA don't necessarily make it to market...

Might be a stupid question, but what is the difference between a supercharger kit and a turbo kit?

Wow! How much boost you planning on running to get that?

Sheer basics here...

supercharger is belt driven. Takes horsepower to make horsepower, however it's instant! Foot on gas, back in seat!

turbocharger is exhaust driven. Free horsepower as it takes waste gases to spool a turbine and compress air the way a supercharger does. Depending on turbo, one might get lag, as the turbo can only spool when you are on the gas, and it takes a moment. Between new vane designs and ball bearings, amongst other things, turbo lag is all but a thing of the past.


Supercharges can be cheaper due to the fact that depending upon style , centrifigual or roots,and boost, all one has to do is change intake plumbing and belt. Turbo's require new exhaust manifolds and intake plumbing, in the bare minimum.

I was thinking the same thing. Seems weird with Twin turbos, but most of the time when this happens from the factory it's discarded in favor of a single turbo setup. While the 3.6L is not a real big engine, I would think it would push a decent size turbo and probably make enough streetable power for most anyone

Two smaller turbos can sometimes spool faster than one larger turbo. I wonder what they are doing to tune the car. Bob
