its made to BOLT ON. All the parts that you need come with it. If you are confused go look at the website.

do you mean supporting mods?

If you do, all that I can think of is maybe a high flow cat and a tune up. Its made to work on a stock car, so the 180 tstat might not be necessary.

If you want to make the most out of it, get a turbo cam or 1.9 rockers so you can up the redline.

I think what he means is will the turbo do damage to his perfectly running car. If you keep it at the stock boost levels [probably 6PSI] then all will be well. Your transmission might be another story though.

Having a Supercharger AND a Turbo is pretty much pointless. If both are running at the same PSI, I really doubt having both could yield much more HP.. if anything lose HP because the SC may restrict turbo flow.

the turbo is much more efficient than a SC will ever be, so its better to take the SC off and put on a turbo with intercooler. Then you will be looking at 400hp and little to nothing in knock with about $5000

Sounds great! Thing is I am looking at getting another Pontiac pretty soon and with this turbo kit and all the Grand Prix has kinda caught my eyes. I have always wanted to have a project car that was actually worth working on and one that had a good aftermarket and hopefully my dreams can finally come true.

The GTP is easier to mod, but a GT would be cheaper and it would allow you to add a turbo.

The only problems with the GT are that the tranny is probably not strong enough and the bottom end might not be strong enough.

You can add a turbo to an L67 easily. You basically use your blower casing as an intake manifold.

If I got that kit, I would have a colder t-stat.

Besides compression ratios, the bottom end is the exact same. The 10 sec ZZP car uses a GT bottom end (I think). It can handle a LOT of power.
