I'm slowly researching this topic as well :thumbup: and all I can say is I was told the bonni, grand prix SC's will not work...?

Don't know for sure though!

Anything can work with enough time and money!!

I'd really like to do the same thing though. Especially if I could find all the parts for the setup at a salvage yard.

been doing a little research. Those will indeed not work without ALOT of custom fabbing if at all. Looks like the Powerdyne SC Kit is the only one that is really made for our cars that will make any decent amount of power. If you're interested, Force Fed Fabrications makes a turbo kit for our cars that is supposed to be pretty good.

yeah the roots style blowers will only fit if you get a big cowl hood, cut out part of the firewall and part of the windshield. everyone thatís attempted it has given up because of the money and hassle involved for only 60hp. powerdyne makes a direct bolt on kit but is not the most powerful thing on the market. I have seen several prochargers kits for the V8's adapted for the v6 and they seem to put some respectable numbers. The FFF turbo kits have been putting out almost unbelievable numbers on the dyno but there was a bad group purchase problem caused by one of the guys suppliers that kinda tainted Tiago as a bad seller. But his kits are not that hard to find for sale. Or you could just talk to him. He is more than willing to do a custom setup if you know what you want.
