Default Turbo Bonneville

I'm just checking, I know that this is probably going to add to my forum idiot ranking, but w/e
So, my friend claims his friend has an LN3 Bonneville with a turbo in it. He claims, also, that it'* stock. I've never heard of this, but I'd like to know if anyone'* ever heard of someone turbo-ing an '89 Pontiac Bonneville, because it'* probably not stock.

no parts were ever made to make the LN3 turbo.....custom application

Dame your right there was a company that made a prototype version of the 90 or 91 SSE LN3 turbo....never saw production


there was one member on here Merlin 91/97 and actually completed the LN3 Turbo....his setup was expensive and totally custom

Your friend is full of it. Put a hundred bucks on the bet, tell him to pop the hood and point to his e-ram electric turbo/supercharger thingy, then laugh and take his money.
