I'm trying to do the same thing and get a Turbo. Guy at the shop around here say's its never been done on my car in the area. He said it would run around 8 to 10,000 dollars for the work. Computer, dyno test and custom stuff. I wish I knew how to do it my self would save alot of money. The system only like 5 or 6,000.

Okay - anybody who wants to do a Google search can do it. To not dis-rail this thread, it will not be a debate about whether somebody is good or a hack. The info is out there on the web for anybody who may want to do their own search. And for the record, I have no opinion - just stepped in to keep the thread on track.

This person has come on here to defame in the attempt to cause harm, and nothing more. Each of his claims are false and easily debunked...if any need the truth, just ask. We have never destroyed any car in over 40 years in business, and are not banned from C5 forum or any other for what he claims...we did drop as a supporting vendor and are not allowed to be a standard member after doing so on any forum.

This is all organized by an unscrupulous competitor that does not hold ethics and truth high on their standards, but instead choose to cut others down in hopes of promoting their business.

So, those on here know me for how long and how I contribute to all in helping with technical data and problem solving....hardly pushing products.

I know a guy that pushed 10PSI through the GTP tranny (550HP on a 275HP rated tranny) and it lasted a year, but he used only thin factory tires, NEVER did a burn out, NEVER went over 20% from a standing start. After about 200-300 full throttle runs on the highway... boom. That had to be some kinda record for a GTP tranny... lol

Thanks all.....anyone can be destroyed with games on the internet now days, and combating false posts is difficult. I have over 40 years of a great reputation and thousands of satisfied customers, can't please all, but 90% of what you see negative is fabricated and only the past 1.5-2 years since they started this campaign.

Now on to the original subject:


The 6L50E trans has held up remarkably well with over 50 SC and turbo builds we have done over the years on the 3.6L V6....the manual trans and clutch ones dont last (the clutch at least). Most of these are 400-450 whp with some pushed to 500 plus.

The stock torque converter does not last long though.

Yes, but you keep forgetting to say that none of the ones you speak of are FWD, your experience is with Camaro and related RWD platforms.

If you ever get the chance to work on an 8th or 9th gen Impala, please share the experience, there are many here that would be glued to their screens... me being one of them.

Just your average Impala

Agreed. The only others are AWD so the torque is strutted to all 4 wheels. I can share with the cobalt turbo 4 cylinder FWD we broke axles....and had to ugrade those....but they were manual trans and not the auto.
