Default Turbo Kit?

Hey guys!
Just wonderin if anyone has a line on a turbo kit for a '99 Bonne. I've been looking for one and I am having a hard time finding anything. Even just the turbo itself would be fine because I can dial it up/down to get the proper compression out of it.

Try www.ststurbo.com

They're rear-mounted and they have an universal kit so you will be able to adapt one to your Bonnie

EDIT:

I should say that www.zzperformance.com has one too but I'm not sure of its application, I'm not sure if it'* made just for the W-bodies or just any L36. Might want to check that out also. Also www.cartuning.com has a turbo kit for the L36, not sure which bodies (W or H or even both) the turbo is intended for

EDIT Part Two:
I should also mention that your 4T65E won't be able to handle the power so an upgrade is needed, preferably to a 4T65E-HD, you could go to www.intense-racing.com and order the 65E to 65E HD conversion kit (It'll replace the three weakest parts of the regular 4T65, I don't remember all of them but the differential is one of them)

There are a couple kits out there, sounds like fuel named most of them off.

Find yourself a good custom turbo builder
Ive got a good friend who builds crazy Grand Nationals here down the Jersey Shore; we are goin to start work on building a turbo setup real soon.

While I agree the tranny is a weak point, with a tranny that is healthy, and one of the base turbo kits or milder ones only running like 8psi boost or so, the tranny will probably hold up fine unless the car is launched hard on slicks or something like that. Obviously with the turbo kit the tranny is going to get more abuse, however with the base kits that only put the car in the mid-high 13 second range, I'd hardly be worrying about the tranny at that point.

Just my $.02 though.

Are you planning on installing this yourself or were you going to have it installed by someone?
