V6 Camaro turbocharged by Turbonetics

At SEMA I had the pleasure of looking at Jay Leno's V6 Twin Turbo Camaro. Talked to the guys at Turbonetics and its already being looked at as one of the possible next new kits. Best pics I could get before the guys in the Chevy booth started bugging us.

OK, if the heads have a larger combustion area, that would lower the compression for the turbos. Is this what they did?

LOVE the Wiggins clamp!!! By the way here's some more info from a GM press release:

http://turboneticsinc.com/forum/news....html#post8933

The Jay Leno Camaro

Powered by a twin-turbocharged version of the 3.6L direct injected V-6 that is standard in Camaro LS and LT models, Leno's Camaro blends high performance with surprising efficiency in a racing-ready package. A pair of Turbonetics T-3 turbochargers blows through a custom air-to-air intercooler, force-feeding the engine about seven pounds of boost and lifting its horsepower level to about 425. That's about 40 percent greater than stock and in normal driving (when the turbochargers aren't making boost), there's virtually no penalty in fuel economy over the non-turbocharged 3.6L engine.

"Jay's Camaro offers style, performance and efficiency in a big way," said Dewar. "It delivers the power of a Camaro SS on demand, but with the fuel economy of a V-6."

Supporting upgrades for the turbo system include a larger-capacity Be-Kool radiator and a custom exhaust system, as well as a Centerforce-supplied clutch and pressure plate for the six-speed manual transmission. The tubing for the turbo system is powder-coated blue. The powertrain was designed to deliver consistent, controllable power for both the street and race track. In fact, road racing was a primary mission for the car during its development.

Additional vehicle also support its racing intent:


Brembo six-piston brake package
Pedders coil-over lowering kit
New front fascia with custom fog lamps and integral brake cooling vents
Air extractor-style hood
The exterior styling of Leno's car is the most radical of all the Camaro concepts at SEMA. The front fascia and hood are one-off creations, as are the unique upper and lower grilles and the ground effects package (including a rear diffuser). The heritage-inspired vent styling in front of the rear wheels has been replaced with functional brake cooling ducts.

In general most turbo kits and definitely the Turbonetics kits aren't designed to require interal upgrades to run them. More details on the kit as things are developing. The SS kit is first to release though.

Not yet man. Holidays means most projects are moving a little slow. The SS kit isn't released yet and the V6 kit won't come till after that.
