Default Ok, thinking about spending several grand...

But first, I'd like to hear what you all have to say about me getting all three of theses to put on my L36 Series II.

Would it even work?

wouldnt it be cheaper to go pick up a 96+ SSEi? get your bang, your gadgets, and a respectable after market.

just my opinion anyway

Yes they would work, but you would need PCM access (timing is to high on an NA car). Also your tranny won't like you at all.

That would be a fun way to spend several grand. But that turbo kit is made for a W-body so the exhaust piping will need to be modified to fit, probably to the point that you'll have to create whole new piping. You could easily tag on almost another grand to have a shop create something that will fit right in an H-body.
I know I'd do it if I had the extra cash to spend.

The turbo and manifolds will bolt up but the downpipe might be different and it will not bolt up the the h-body exhuast. Also the intercooler piping will have to reworked to fit on a h-body.
For chip tuning try www.gmtuners.com and i think that DHP will reprogram your pcm too.
And like rogue said your tranny will not be happy.

Better bulletproof your transmission before going that far.

Rogue'* right..... if you're planning to spend that amount of money on HP... be ready to spend even more fixing/upgrading your tranny.
