how much would it cost to supercharge or turbo the LS3 to this power level? Even with beefed up internals and fuel, would it really get up to $20K?

I read about a bolt on twin turbo kit for the G8 making over 500hp to the wheels.

545rwhp TTG8

Geez, he can't even get traction on that dry pavement!! That's some serious power for a lot less than an LS9.

That engine looks so nice. I think it belongs in a center-fold or something. Looks mean and sexy.

The LS7 cost around 13k. This engine has even more titanium and a supercharger. Think again.
