I would give you my car for 2 weeks if I could keep the boost equipment.

And Lingefelter bought their test mules. Again, not trying to be harsh, but you are asking someone to donate their car, which at this stage is still fairly rare and more then likely very close to being brand new, if not brand new, so that you can R & D, T & T, on it until things are correct. On a dyno, or on a street/strip (and i would hope that you would put whatever system you design on the street for real world testing. a dyno is a great tool, but it is no replacement for the actually rigors of the real world). With all that testing comes mistakes, lesser then expected response, ie; scrming and intake part II, and possibly just an accident.

In short, to say that giving up a turbo package that might cost $6500 to someone who is donating a car that cost at least $21k, in my case $28k, for you to test, tune and play with is a bit steep, well, that's just not saying much for the people and their cars. I would gladly send you my car if the finished product came back with it, and the guarantee that if anything broke while you had it would be replaced. I wouldn't touch it for just an offer of the guarantee and a discount. I'm the one doing all the giving, I should get something in return.

A $7,000 V6 kit is a good idea, it will give you the option. Good stuff is what it's all about and you get what you pay for. A good turbo will run about $1500 bucks. Wastegates are another $300-500. A blowoff valve is $300+. Stainless steel tubing is in the $300 range.

Now lets talk about the intercooler. A bell core is $800 bucks without tanks. All of the aluminum tubing is about $200. Vband clamps can cost up to $400. You already have over $4,000 just in parts before you start with the fuel system, and pay people to build it for you and back the parts they sell. That's with all good stuff and no worries.

Just looked on eBay and can build a kit for about $4500 bucks out the door. That will include a no name turbo that leaks, a blow me valve from China, a wastegate that comes from a site call cheapturboparts dort com, some steel tubing that will rust in a couple of months, and a nice ricer intercooler that is going to leak. The best part is there is no warranty! You will be working on your car more than you get to drive it!

Not trying to be a negative Nancy. I know a $7000-8000 turbo kit seems like a lot, but if you do it right it won't cost you in the long run.

i just feel that a twin turbo, or even a single turbo should make way more power than you are projecting. I am interested in this turbo though.

Since they have been busy ill try and help them a little here.. The turbo kit is capable of making more power then stated above( the beauty of turbo kit is the boost controller) the STOCK motor is whats limiting the numbers ...Im sure someone will make 500 with a stock 6 banger but not for long...A good turbo/performance shop is not going to push the limits of the stock motor...


Just play with them a little

So you are asking for someone to just drop their car off for 2 weeks with absolutely no guarantee other than a $300 gift certificate.....I dropped my car off at a local shop for a week and they are giving me a complete system (powder coated headers, stainless catback, etc) for free.....

P.S - I don't really see the point in this...a 2SS version of my car would have been about $6k more....why would I pay $8k to give my car SS performance instead of just buying an SS?

there are in fact a number of different reasons to go the turbo v6 route... couple of things that come to mind:

1) Still paying V6 insurance rates... big deal for some...
2) Could only afford to start out with a V6... upgrade to a turbo at a later date, without having to take a big deprecation hit moving from V6 to V8
3) Uniqueness of a turbo v6

in reality a turbo kit to really sell well i think will need to be closer to the $5,000 price than $8,000

Teamturbo, I'll let you use the car for 2 weeks but leave the finish product on the car at the end. Your not gonna get anyone to do it for 300 bucks so ship mine to you and stop this craziness. Turbocharge me up and send her back

We bought V6s cuz we are either cheap or income compromised. If we weren't, we would have an SS and might be considering a Supercharger or a turbo.
