There is also still one more way to get more hp out of the SC and I am surprised the zz or intense guys have not figured it out yet. I am sure as they reach the ceiling they will find new options.

Turbo with Nos is the best for greater hp but Will you are right on with the comment about the sc it is an awesome deal. Like I mentioned Benz made a clutch system for the sc and it could be used.

If you put a turbo on a 3800 you'd ruin the flat power curve... Which is most of the fun in these engines! I dunno if i could do that.

Best example I can use to answer your question is this.

One day a guy with a F-150 Lightning decided he did not have enough power in his truck. Well he did not just want to change the pulley but do something different. So he had a Paxton Novi 2000 (Centrifugal Supercharger) strapped on w/ an intercooler and keeping the Eaton. He made an extra 100+RWHP so basically the Novi takes over the sealing flaws of the Eaton at higher rpm'* and provides a cool enough intake charge for no detonation.

So yes you could do a turbo and just have it cram air into the Eaton without having to bypass. That'* what I wanted to try on Willwren'* car one day, since I have some extra turbo'* laying around here. Just food for thought for you..

We've talked about it numerous times......distance is a problem, or it would probably already be done. Hector is a good 12-14 hours from me.

Kinda defeats the purpose, Padwan We've already got a turbo'd NA. The idea is to run BOTH!

Granted Turtle is running a modified Series 2 in his 92, but that'* a big-*** turbo he'* got. Weighs more than his wife.

I think it'* a pretty easy thing. if you do it all your self and have all parts.
parts:
turbo
wastegate(unless theres one on the turbo)
custom crossover
maybe a mini afc
and a cai
that should be safe at low boost 4-5psi for the turbo(I don't know for sure)
then once you have a intercooler bump it up to 10psi
then add a intercooler to the supercharger and bump it higher
maybe a pulley
some laughing gas.
and WOW! WHAT A SMOKE STORM!!

And a Gertrag 5-speed or a modified 4T80E to handle it! We've had enough Fragged trannies here already. L27, L36, and L67 alike!

I seriously would love the PCM with manual tranny option, and a nice 5 or 6 speed. That would REALLY let this engine go! Honestly i hope to do something like that in a couple years. An LSD wouldn't be bad either. I really miss a clutch to rev my engine at people, or for ***** and giggles, and besides, best way to lay down some stripes is to dump a clutch!
