My plan of keeping it simple has been washed away by the turbo bug. My question is whether this kit can be adapted to a bonneville since it's for gps and montes etc. Also any supporting mods recommended besides upgraded bearings? If I go this route the engine would be rebuilt first along with the trans so trans mods can be put here too. My goal is a sleeper that gives NO indicator of performance such as ssei badges or dual exhaust (besides ses are supposed to be slow right? :wink: ) Also what mufflers would make for a quiet exhaust and give enough flow? Power goal is approx 300.

It can be adapted, for sure, but I've only seen one or two done, with no real record of what was done to make it work, and no one is around that I know of to talk to. You're going to need access to fabrication tools, etc.

The bearings are the least of your worries, you need to worry about your pistons and fuel system.

My disclaimer: The one member we had on here had a BUILT motor using high-performance pistons, rings, cam, etc. and he still blew out a piston just passing a guy on the highway. He used the cartuning turbo kit. Haven't seen posts from him in well over a year.

Best exhaust for that? Stock.

I'm not doing any obscene levels of boost, maybe 10 lbs max. And will the stock 2.5 inch exhaust be ok for turbo use?

The gp turbo kits should fit just fine. The engine and exhaust are the same and there's more room everywhere u.nder thehood. As long as its tuned right, I see no reason 300 turbo horsepower shouldn't be daily driveable and totally reliable. Gp folks have turbo'd l36 quite a lot with apparent good results.

I was seriously considering a turbo with the engine replacement. I could sell off all my gen v stuff and go turbo for a reasonable price but id be over 400hp. The combo I'm putting together looks to be around 350whp. Either way it'd just be too fast for its own good.

lol ^^^^

i would assume the tune will be tough unless you or someone near you can give you a custom tune. I would think the guys are tyring to push way to much boost. 10psi is nothing in the turbo world so I would assume that would be fine. also i think the stock exhaust should be perfect. pretty tough to hide a spooling turbo.

My issue with every turbo system ive seen on a fwd 3800 is the manifold setup. Usually involves blocking the DP and using the crossover to feed the turbo. Tuning wouldnt be too bad, but youd want someone with experience either doing the tune or helping out.

Nice thing with turbo power is its a whole lot easier on driveline parts than a blower.

Turbo noise<blower whine, but still cool and different, so im all about it.
