      Lots of people have, with some great results. Just do some digging. There are some different forums and facebook groups full of great info.

        nobody's buying so I'm putting some research together. If it doesn't sell before I get all the bills paid then I'm keeping it. This far not 1 person has shown interest.

          clubgp.com should have a lot of information on turbo-ing an L36. Your intake will be different as the FWD variant pulls air from the rear of the engine.

                I will try and chime in here, as I know a few people who have done this. Here are the basic things:

                Turbo
                Wastegate (if not internal)
                blow off valve
                headers (log or forward)
                FMIC
                Mandrel bends
                Couplers
                Injectors
                Fuel Pump
                Engine Management / Tuning
                Wideband o2 Sensor
                Oil Lines & other Misc. things



                Hope that helps, some people have had great results doing this.

                  That's a lot of dollar signs for a v6 to keep up with a cammed NA v8 LS car.

                  There are easier ways to have a quick Camaro. If you want to be unique then go for it, but it's going to cost the same to turbo a 3800 as it would a LS, if not more.

                    My buddy Brian has a story bottom end series 2 with a 520 lift 230s duration cam. Stock factory heads with a 67/66 on e85 in a 3600 lb blazer that ran a 10.30 at 120 etting out 200 feet early because of a popped head gasket. The motor has been together for 4 or 5 years now. Very very impressive set up for what he has into it and for what it is. Based off some calculators it makes around 800 at the crank

                    Other then that recent head gasket issue which was from his fault that motor has been super reliable.

                    It's air to air ; maf tuned and it also has a 75 dry shot on it to spool it just off the line.

                      Yes that's true. I could actually sell all the parts I have in my bedroom for my 3800 N/A build and it would get me enough money to cover an engine/tranny/ecm/and harness. Problem is that nobody is biting and i want to start working on my car lol. I have seen some good deals on LS engines lately. I just don't have the cash laying around. I will probably just build the N/A like I had planned originally and have fun with the 250 or so HP and call it a day. Maybe when I am in my 50's I can get the car i actually want. My credit sucks and my ex is raping me on child support so this is it I guess!
