    Here is a video of a fly-by of one of our older twin turbo 3.6 builds:

    We also broke 600 FWHP on another Saturday with twin EFR turbos.

    First member here will have his installed in the next two weeks also.

    FWHP? Im guessing you dont mean front wheel...600 whp on a fwd car would be insane for a DD.

    Any chance of producing a production twin turbo set up for the 3.6 DI?

    Yes. We are doing them one at a time right now as were swamped producing the Super Charger kits, but we intend to in the future whe we can hire more production staff.

    But if anyone want one now, the single turbo (ceramic ball bearing) is $6900 turn-key installed and tuned, and the twin is $7900.

    Wow...what kind of power are you seeing out of both single and twin setups? Is the twin a rear mount setup like the STS kits?

    What turbo's are you running in the twin and single setup? Where are you placing the turbos? Interested!

    Im sorry I just read up a few posts and sort of answered my own question. 600hp is pretty insane, I wonder how long it would take the stock auto tranny to get thrashed with that kind of power :P

    With the kind of abuse that level of power will invite, probably not very long.

    We turned the wick down to around 475 whp to save the motor & trans. There is no doubt it would not last long.....but it made for some good bragging rights!

    The turbos are mid mount by the trans, and we use Borg Warner turbos or other top quality, The BW EFR's are what we made the 600 hp with....but they are $1800 each.

    I ran Garrett series turbos on previous vehicles and was very happy with them. Any possibility of running those in the near future

    Also how does the automatic transmission hold the power? Have you seen an transmissions fail at a certain threshold?

    Garrets are top of the line as well and we use them also.

    We have yet to break a trans (or have a customer break one...and the auto's have all went with our 3600 stall converters).

    Here are links to videos of both RX super charged & twin turbo builds posted by customers:

    Re: Any Late model 3.6 CTS owners want 100-150 more HP?

    Same here! I have a suspicion the AWD system won't hold up to much extra power and will prove to be the weak spot in these cars. (Kind of makes sense, if one assumes GM's designers decided AWD owners were most likely customers just doing daily driving with their cars and wanted one that wouldn't get them stuck in ice/snow, while the more performance-minded would go with RWD versions instead.) Problem is, I'm one of those exceptions who bought my car used, not even knowing it was offered as RWD/AWD in different versions until after I made the purchase. Got a great deal and the car had every single feature I wanted - so don't regret it. But now I'm stuck wondering if it's really a candidate for this type of power upgrade or not?
