Default Turbochargers on bonnes??

I was just wondering if anyone every puts turbochargers on bonnevilles?? I have obviously seen superchargers but never turbochargers. If they don't, is there a specific reason why not?
Thanx

Turtle must have made his car so fast it eventually reached escape velocity.

Yeah, turbos work on almost any car, they are easier to install cause they are fed by exaust and not a belt, and are fed into your intake. Although i'd say the are a little ricey myself.... But you will gain a lot more higher RPM power, but still have driveability in lower RPMS. You'll definetly lose the feel of the flat torque curve of the 3800, thats for sure.

Thought Turtle sold his car or sumthing AS for the turbo.... we may see a kit sometime in August from what I've been hearing. Not sure of the price but I was told it would be cheaper than ZZP'* CSC. As for now I'm waiting with the rest of the crew.
