Shoulda bought a V. You'd be most of the way there.

If you didn't because of the budget, I have baaaaad news for you....

Just bought the car last week and I plan on putting twin turbos on it. What setup would I need to get me in that range of power?

Anyone in Arizona willing to install them?
Search the V6 Camaro forums for ideas and examples, they started out as second generation platforms 3.6L wise and have a number of member cars in the 11 sec quarter mile times with turbos and superchargers on LLT, LFX and LGX motors and use the same computer operating system for the matching motor.

It's the quarter time you want, dyno numbers are good for bragging, but quarter mile times are the real thing no matter what your hp rating is.

I was confused because I had been looking at the overkill website thinking that pro charger was a regular turbo.

I’m going for 0-60 time and more 8th mile times. I can’t afford a V and with enough power I can beat a V off the line with all 4 tires spinning and a bunch of boost.

I’ll be one of the first with a Twin turbo and a supercharger setup on 3.6 CT’s coupe.

I’m gonna need help though but we can get r done

Anyone else think this is a scam?

I would assume anything claiming to be "universal" is a scam.

if I can put about 10 grand into it. My skill set is I wouldn’t trust myself to install a supercharger without someone who know what they’re doing more than me. I’m a decent mechanic but never supercharger and turbod a caddy

You’re going to need another $10,000 minimum. I have over $10,000 into mine and made it to 450whp on the AWD before the engine gave out. To get to 550whp you’re going to need a forged motor built and about 22psi of boost. Powertrain loss on the AWD is about 30-35%.

I had everything that was available at the time, minus cams, and some things that were not. 928 Motorsports upgraded V3 supercharger at 15psi, fuel cam, fuel pump, injectors, wastegate, methanol injection, ported intake, 80mm throttle body, full exhaust, e47 tune, torque converter, $1800 custom driveshaft after snapping 2 stock ones, and I’m sure there’s some stuff I’m forgetting. Oh yeah headers too...

After the engine went I just swapped in an LFX. It’s back running now but I haven’t even started tuning yet. I’ve had my exhaust redone 3 times and have now added port injection for fueling and removed the meth $1000+. I’m going to swap wastegate springs and go back to 12-13 until I build a forged engine later this year or over the winter.

I think I can hit 500 but by the time I do I could have bought a V. I may still buy a V. Air ride is going on next. Have to finish up a different car to free up my lift and then I’ll install that once I finish powder coating some parts.

All said and done to hit 500 I think I’ll have $20,000 into upgrades all into a wagon I’d sell for $25,000 if the right buyer came along. That would be me basically giving the car to someone if they bought all the mods, wheels, air ride, stereo etc.

Keep your car stock. Keep saving the money you'd spend on the TT/programming/broken parts/etc. When you hit the number, sell your car, take that money and the savings, and buy a V.

Every dollar you spend on yours to make it faster makes it less reliable and worth less. Every dollar you put into a V you will get back.

Yeah, you're tuning in to All Girls Garage for the cars the same way I picked up Penthouse for the articles.
