You talking 13.5'* and better? If that can be had with a few simple bolt ons then hey, I'll do the turbo setup in another project... 3800 in a cavalier ftw

*note* I hate cavies but they're cheap and my friend did this swap once... so he could help me do it. And super light chassis + fast engine = awesome car

But anyways

As far as cost goes... I priced out a turbo setup for my cousin'* Accord at $500 (excluding tuning), and I have a friend elijah who had the same setup I was budgeting for, + clutch and ran low 13'* in his Accord. Yes I know these are apples and oranges but I'm sure I could make do.

I'll look moreso into the Camaro IM. Thanks for all the help btw... this has been a very informational day.

And let me know about the "simple mods" that could get me in the mid 13'* lol

I'm not half as good at telling you what mods are best for */c engines as some of the other guys on here but I'll tell you what I do know.
The same friend I'm helping w/ the turbo ran 13.6 in his loaded full weight regal with a 3" DP, 3.25" pulley, alki injection, home depot intake, a cutout, and a lot of tuning.
Add to that some rockers, a set of used headers and it would have been a good deal faster.

Interesting.. never looked into alki inj, how'd that work out? I wonder how I could fend with getting away from that...
