Default Call me insane for this

I was peeping out in Grand haven this weekend and gandered at a similar white SSEi and a black GTP in the lot near the breakerwall where I work. Looking under the hood, I see no */C nose or pulley. They were carrying this.

After reading the stuff on that site, 400 something HP from a Turbo? Someone wanna give me some insite on this. Would that little thing do that much?

yeah, a proper turbo setup (note the term proper) can yeild a TON of power... 400hp isn't unreasonable at all...

Cartuning Performance claims the kit makes 280 at the wheels and over 300 ft/lbs of torque at the wheels, although on the dyno it actually produced 296hp and over 400 ft/lbs at the wheels on a completely stock car with an open down pipe.

Wow they have kits! Funny...they don't mention Bonneville in the listing of applications..but they mention Monte Carlo, GP, Regal, Impala...do they not know the Bonnes have the L36 and L67 too, or do they just not think Bonne owners would be interested?

i think it wont be a direct bolt up... the bonne is a totally different engine bay than the others (atleast the 2000+) i bet it would work with mild customizing...

all the cars mentioned are W bodied cars. The exhaust is setup differently than on the Bonneville.

I saw the pics and it looked like it would use parts of the front and back manifolds...but you'd have to block off the bottom of the rear.

Looks doable...but yes...crazy..
