    Well there are Turbo/Blower kits that just bolt on.
    From there I would definetly upgrade my suspension/Driveline.
    Also check out a stiffy.....

    The easiest path to a twin turbo is to get together with qwkgto. See what he just did for someone on a totally stock car. http://www.ls1.com/forums/showthread...20#post1961320 But yeah Sarge is right about suspension/driveline if you wnat to be able to put it to the street without breaking things. And getting a stiffy is a must. lol

    agreed^^^ depends on trans m6 needs clutch,drag bags ,drive shaft,auto need some building to last and same other mods as the M6. turbos are a great power adder,while maintaining great drivability and the gas milage does increase.my kits are bolt on.

    i see qwkgto so your turbos they are all coustom built for 04 gto's? What kinda horse power can i expect to get out of from one of your set ups? And what is the range money wise you charge?

    As stated The Suspension is Key to your GTO..If you had a 1,0000 HP car how would you get the power to the Wheels.Next Think what You want to Do with the GTO there are Many Bolt on kits that will give you 500+ hp on the street and thats Fine if thats what You want....Frank

    complete with fuel upgrades,this includes turbo,intercooler,return fuel system tuned .ready to drive,my kit ($6200 ready to rock) .
    you bring me car or have a shipping co. deliver car.
    last one I done guy said it was $350 one way,500rwh is very easy 5-8psi boost 10 is around 650rwh, keep the cars drivability and gain gas milage ,well when you not in the throttle.with 13 psi and stock ls2 my car an 05 went 10.6 @129mph built transmission with drag radials.
    the beauty of turbos is the ability to run them with the stock setup,boost controlers allow you to turn the boost up for the track,yes diveline upgrades are part of that equasion,but thats up to the cars owner,I highly suggest a 1 peice aluminum drive shaft,drag bags on an auto 50-75 tq management taken out,leaving some in keeps your stock trans in line,on an M6 car a good clutch and the same mods as the A4 and its game on..
    mods: custom built twins, built 408 w/l92 stock GM heads,GM matching intake,drag bags,frame ties,aluminum drive shaft, performabuilt 4l80e,Yank converter,ohios fastest and quickest 04-06 GTO 9.52 at 144mph. 1.50 60ft on stock rear end and shafts/suspension,on drag radials.

    that sounds good to me. so i would see a 150rwhp boost and the $6200 cost does that include the labor? either way i will have to scrape up some money though and contact you again. however i am sure i will have many more questions or problems that i will ask you about if you dont mind. thanks man

    Being old school I stay normally aspirated build up the motor and suspension.
    dropping all your $'s into one facet of the vehicle (the motor) will draw more attention to the weaker points on the suspension...in my opinion

    yes that is installed and tuned,you will be very happy,upgrades in the driveline are aways an option,ive ran tens for three years on stock rear end,and motor.there are aussie gtos that are running completely stock and running 10s, all in the tune,which is 90% of these cars put all the best parts money can buy and damn car could be a turd,without right tune.

    So maybe alil lag is good eh? I see your in Ohio lets see what your procharger does against my turbos,well see how much lag I have ...lol ..does not matter its all about the setup,prochargers have to be at about the same RPM as a turbo,had them both,benefits of a turbo they dont eat 30hp per 100hp to drive a sliping belt.
