Default turbo bonneville

I have a 1999 bonneville se love the car. I am giving a lot of thought into turboing it ,the two 3800 vendors i have been looking at dont seem to have much for turbo kits for bonnevilles anyone know of a nice turbo kit for a bonneville. I will start caming my engine and having the heads done going throwing the bottom end and doing all that fun stuff so i would like a kit i could but on a stock motor and upgrade it as i go. Any help would be nice.

I'm more of a Grand Prix guy, but I assume a 99 bonne has the Series 2 3800? The L36 guys on ClubGP are having HUGE success with the Cartuning turbo kit if you're interested. I think you can get it a PFYC.com still. Check out the turbo forum on ClubGP.com.

Please realize that all the W-body kits may fit perfectly as far as the downpipe goes. The brake booster could get in the way and the area where the original downpipe went may differ enough to cause a problem.
No one really knows for sure if there will be a problem since it'* never been done.

Also, beefing up the trans is a must.
