The INTENSE Turbo GP runs over 30psi IIRC. There are people with turbos on LS1'* and stuff like that. People put twin turbos on small blocks those make a lot of power. It is actually fairly common. The problem is, it isn't really practical to drive around in an 800hp car on the street because you literally can't get any traction under like 100mph, its pretty useless, so stuff like that is generally for race purposes only.

i meant stock. The turbo kits that install where the muffler is on an fbody are pretty neat, you can add a turbo to about any car you want.

I know you can put a turbo on anything, and the turbo'* for f-bodies I was speaking of aren't the kind that go by the mufflers, I was talking about normal turbo setups with the turbo under the hood and the intercooler and all that. If you were talking about stock then you're not talking about our cars, as no 3.8'* have come stock with turbo'* since the 80'*, so unless your talking about those I don't see how you can be talking stock???

Yeah, turtle did.

As far as I know of nobody with any newer stuff has. I'm sure somebody has probably done it to an older one wth a V8 in it for a drag car, or at least I would think so, but nobody on here has.
