On Turbo-charging...

Any idea about it in general? I think i wanna put turbos in my car, i didn't want to go all out with a supercharger, the turbos should be cheaper/give less hp but i'm okay with that. Any info as to, pricing, if its safe for the car,or if a turbo for the v6 05 even exists would be appreciated!! thanks!

You have it backwards, the turbos make more power and cost more money.

Yep, for our cars anyways.

See there is less Piping, and hardware needed fo a supercharger than a Turbo. Plus Turbos are much more efficient at producing high RPM horsepower than a supercharger.

Helion and Powerhouse both make very nice systems. Probably looking at $6500-$7000 installed. Not cheap.

I'd avoid all turbochargers in the $1000 range. Just for grins, what's the site?

Hmm...?? A full kit? You can normally, maybe, get the head unit for that, or the piping, or the cooler and blow off...
