    How much? When it sends a rod thru the block.....


    But seriously. I've seen several single and twin turbo V6 Firebirds ripping it up at the track on Youtube.

    I would be talking with a tuner first, it's possible that they've been down this road before and can offer suggestions. Not too many guys on here have done it to a V6 here.


    I do know the 3800 LOVES boost.


    Some other areas you're going to need to look at in addition to just the engine is transmission, rear end and suspension. High HP & TQ will always find the weakest link in the drivetrain.
