    Re: Turbo Ideas

    Lance:

    I like everything in this link.

    http://www.3800performance.com/ct_turbo_kit.htm

    I will need to move things around a bit and I plan to add an intercooler to whatever solution used on the car. I have almost all of the parts they listed with the exception of the important ones, like the proper turbo, reprogramming of the ECU, fuel regulator and +40% injectors. I think the Camero units I used are +15% so I need to use more flow as not to toast the pistons.

    Regards,

    Dave

    Re: Turbo Ideas

    I wonder if it is going to make much difference having the turbo mounted directly to the stock manifold. The gas from the other side should catch up soon enough. The plus side is it will spool up faster.

    Re: Turbo Ideas

    I'm glad I read some of this info. I have always been interested in a 3800 V6. I think a Turbo would be cool! I know I have been talking LS7, but I think a really strong V6 turbo or Supercharged would go like stink! Light engine, light car, that thing would be a screamer!

    Re: Turbo Ideas

    I picked up a junk yard Garrett turbo today from a Volvo 740. One of the things I like about it is the fact it is water cooled and is a smaller A/R of 42 that will work best for a 3800 engine. They don't make many RPM's so the small turbo will fit into the power bad although it will not push a ton of volume into the engine. I feel that is a positive since my engine has a compression ratio of 8.4:1. I can pick up about 80 HP with only seven pounds of boost as well as increased gas mileage. Now for the hard work.

    Re: Turbo Ideas

    It seemed to be in good shape. I needed to pick up a few fittings to get the correct plumbing on the turbo housing.

    This is the shape of the flange I need to make to attach the housing to the 3800 exhaust.

    Re: Turbo Ideas

    I would like to use the oil cooler in the system. Maybe before the turbo.

    The drain on the bottom of the turbo needs to flow unobstructed to the oil pan. I suspect I will put the intercooler i this spot then place the oil/water cooler elsewhere on the car.
