why no CSC - Page 2 - GM Forum - Buick, Cadillac, Chev, Olds, GMC & Pontiac chat


General GM Chat When starting new posts, please specify YEAR, MAKE, MODEL, ENGINE type, and whatever modifications you have made. Chat about all things GM (and related cars). Off-topic stuff should be in the Lounge, and all Model specific mechanical problems should be posted in the proper forum.

A CSC is huge power adder for 3800'*. Its a LOT more effiecient than an M90, Gen III or Gen V. You slap one on a GTP and take the blower off and you're going to gain some serious time. However, its still pretty much a belt driven turbocharger...because of this, it is robbing quite a bit of power from the engine to run it. A turbo setup would be cheaper and more efficient. But, the reason people switch from like a Gen III to a Gen V is really simple, because its practically a bolt on, and still looks almost stock. Yes, it doesn't have HUGE gains, but it has some gain, and when you're trying to get a lot of power out of a pushrod v6, any gain is still a gain. Not only that, but Gen V M90'* really aren't that expensive. A turbo or CSC costs significantly more.

If I had a N/A 3800 and I wanted to go fast, I would put a turbo on it.
