This spring I plan of putting one of those Turbos on my 95 SE. I can do the exhaust fabbing and intake tubing myself. It actually looks fairly simple to do. Just gonna take some time. My biggest holdup is going to be tuning. I may end up trying to adapt a full OBD2 system to it. Now that my engine is rebuilt and my trans is built to handle the power, the next step is the turbo. My goal is 350hp at the wheels with 6psi of boost. Im shhoting for low 13'* high 12'* with the setup and a BIG intercooler in place of the A/C condensor.

Would that ZZP Z7 kit fit a 2000 SSEi?

If sheer speed is what you are looking for the turbo is the cheapest route. L67 cars are great at low- mid speeds. If short races are your thing then supercharging will be cheaper. L67s fall on their faces at high speeds. The only way to fix that is by getting a cam/ intercooler and running a small pulley. Keep in mind your reliability goes down with a cam. However, if your looking to run with or take LSx motors at speeds >70mph you need a turbo. Thats the only way you will continue to build speed the faster you go.

I guess this all depends on your goals and what fish you are going for.

I'd have to disagree.

I've done quite a bit of research on it myself, and found that most people who have done a turbo setup really wish they stayed */C. I for one would go supercharged if you have the chance. Keep in mind, that to get the supporting mods for a turbo it'* gonna cost around 5-7 grand for it to run right. I also met a guy while at Intense with a turbo Firebird. Tuning gave him such a headache that he wanted to sell the car to me. Stay N/A or go supercharged, that'* my advice

Quite the oposite.. most would never go back to */C. And yes I have an */Ced GTP and Turbo GTP. See :and yes EVERY car pictured is mine...

where do you get $7k to run right from. Base turbo, 1.9 rockers, tuner= golden
maybe PEMS or PLOGsand a catback. Thats more than enough to make you say oh ****..

I don't even have $7k into mine and I'll be in the 10s...

Only reason the guy wanted to sell the car is because it blew up on the dyno...and he had some stupid with it-not turbo related.
