So I'm curious if the 2.8 v6 can withstand a turbo? I originally wanted to use the supercharged 3.8 I have but I just want more performance out of the stock? Has anyone done this or know off hand about how much I could safely run without trashing the motor? Thanks for the help
Just to clarify, from what aspect are you looking at it when you say "trying to stay mostly stock" in the subject?
Is it a question of skill/money, or is it a question of aesthetics?
A turbo will add quite a bit of ducting to the exhaust and intake, so it definitely won't look stock when it's done.
In terms of price, the money needed will probably exceed what would otherwise be needed for an engine swap.
At the end of the day, a 3800 would be cheaper and probably be a bit quicker since you're turboing a stock 2.8.
I'm not against a turbo, I think it would be awesome, but if I was going to go with the V6/60, I'd want to upgrade it... probably go with a 3.4 so that I'd have more displacement.
