Re: Turbo kit for v6 camaro

Well, there is only one kit and it isnt very well made, and good luck getting one any time soon. Best option is to custom make one. Not too terribly difficult. You can work with aftermarket headers such as pacesetters, then either go under the K member, notch/plate the K member, or use an aftermarket K member. Plenty of room for the turbo right in front of the motor.

Re: Turbo kit for v6 camaro

There will be a kit coming from Cartuning Performance very soon. They've been using my car as a ginea pig since January. We're trying to maximize hp safely. Cartuning performance has had a 3.8 kit for Grand Prix and other fwd cars. Surf the net and Grand Prix forums to view customer feedback.

Is this kit intercooled?

It will be, but not right away. Cartuning Performance will offer 2 price points for the kit. One with an intercooler, and one without. As I'm sure you are aware, an intercooler will allow for more boost. Cartuning Performance has a 400 hp 15psi intercooled Grand Prix.

The Intercooled version is expected in the Summer.

Re: Turbo kit for v6 camaro

The intercooler is going to be a $1000 option though, from what i've been hearing about the kit. Hopefully it does well and the price comes down gradually, but given the size of the V6 market overall, i wouldn't keep my hopes up. like 5.0THIS said, there's always the custom route, which is what i did for my car.

What don't you like about it? I'm curious. They have an 11 second Grand Prix with video to prove it. They've never had a return, their customer satisfaction it high. I would like to know why you weren't impressed so that I can contact the owner and tell him what he needs to do to satisfy all potential customers.

Well since there's only two kits out there, and both of them suck... i guess you're SOL then.
