    Looking to start a project

    I'm toying with the idea of buying a V6 Camaro with a blown engine (cheaper cause I'm replacing the engine anyway), and making it blindingly fast

    First thing that comes to mind is this...will the APS Twin Turbo Kit (for the LS1) work with a V6? I may have to fabricate some Exhaust Manifolds, but the induction can't be that much different than the LS1, right?

    I know I'm going to be replacing the block, heads, cam, etc., so that is not a problem.

    Any imput?

    Your best best is going to be to fab up the entire kit. With all the work you would be doing to that kit, it will cost u less in the end to just build one. Plus i would imagine the turbo size for the ls1 might be a bit big for the 3.8.

    i don't think the stock 3800 series 2 will put out enough exhaust to spool teh twin turbos fast enough... you'll probably have to get smaller turbos... and like freak said you'll end up fabing the entire kit and spending a shit load...
