    Twin Turbo Escalade

    Well, I just bought my Escalade and I am just about to throw a few turbos on it. I know many on this forum are not into the performance end of things, but I am sure there are a few of you out there. It sucks because I don't see any turbo kits for these vehicles so I will be going the custom route.

    For any interested, I'll keep you posted on the progress, which should start in about two weeks. The goal is 650-700rwhp. I have done this on several different rides over the years, but would welcome any input as I go.

    My neighbor supercharged (centrafugal SP?) his 6.0 H2. With that mild of a setup he went through 2 transmissions before he sold the car. I would check the current transmission to see if it can take the extra HP & TQ..

    I think the only "kit" is a maggie right now. Although if you search on YouTube there are severl twin turbo Caddy trucks.

    Re: Twin Turbo Escalade

    I have a customer with a 2008 regular Escalade that took off his twin turbo setup off my Z06 and had it fitted on the Escalade. 725 wheel hp, he has been thru several diffs, a few transfer cases and several transmissions. I passed him on the street on Monday so I know it's running again after replacing the drive train with super heavy duty parts, I will post who he used for these things when I talk to him. You will need really big brakes to stop

    Re: Twin Turbo Escalade

    I'd definitely love to hear what parts he used for the trans. I am planning to build the trans, but don't know the weak points yet. I have a 2wd specifically because my intent was to add power and didn't want to deal with half shafts and diffs on top of everything else.

    Interesting on the Z06 point, I was considering using a 2010 Camaro SS kit to start and modify that.

    I have seen a few pre 2007 twin setups, but not a 2007+ one yet. I'd love to see the 2008 one just mentioned.

    Just a question being that you have the 2WD version is it a 6.2L or 5.3L? I am remembering hearing somewhere that the motors in the 2WD versions were smaller..

    Re: Twin Turbo Escalade

    What Brand of a Twin Turbo system are you going to start with? I'm a big fan of forced induction my self and have a TT viper and a supercharged Vett. Been wanting to do this for some time now on my 07slade.

    I am going with Precision water cooled ball bearing turbos, but there is not a kit made for these cars so I will be running a custom setup.

    Most likely I will not be modifying a kit. It will just be a custom fabbed setup.

    Interesting. I didn't know STS released a kit for the 6.2litter 07+. I will call them Monday to confirm.

    If you Google STS turbo+2007 Escalade nothing comes up. Only their kits for 06 and older.

    Re: Twin Turbo Escalade

    Different sources show different year ranges for the STS kits, but I do not think they have a 6.2 kit yet. Regardless, I personally do not like the whistle sond of the STS kits so I would not go with one.
