    Re: Turbo?

    6 psi is roughly equivelant to 10% more displacement

    that's almost a 50% increase in intake air pressure, but there's diminishing returns due to added heat/exhaust restrictions

    Re: Turbo?

    if you want to go fast, buy a fast car for cryin out loud. it'll end up being cheaper and a lot more enjoyable, plus you'll have decent brakes, suspension, tranny, diff, etc.

    sure you could get away with spending "only" 2-3000 dollars to put a turbo on your ****ing CAVALIER, or 1000-1500 if you REALLY know what you're doing and use junkyard parts but you'd better have a few thousand more when the added power and you driving it hard thinking "wow this things fast" and start breaking drivetrain parts.

    Re: Turbo?

    You have a lot of research to do. Yes, a turbo can greatly increase the speed of you car. Look up turbo chargers on howthingswork.com. That is a good start. From there you will want to see if anyone else has put a turbo on a car like yours. From that you can learn the limitations of your car.

    Cavalier's are NOT fast in any form. So no it's a waste of money.

    the 2200 EcoTec's at little over 4.5psi made ~170-185whp. Sure thats a nice number for a Cavalier but my little K20Z3 makes that much stock. So no you won't be running more than like low - mid 14's

    you cant just go spraying either. Both of those can mess things up if you dont know what you are doing. He needs to take the time to research.

    Re: Turbo?

    well, with an 03, it wouldn't be all that hard

    get a headgasket from the supercharged cavy, and have a shop weld a 4-bolt flange to your downpipe where it used to connect to the cat

    an internally wastegated turbo, some post-cat 02 sensor adaptation, some custom pipes (an air to water ic would be easiest in that engine bay), and the cost of a shop to do a fuel map for you, and you'd be set

    i gaurantee it could be done for under 2k with a little gt15 or gt20, and however much boost he s/c engine runs, hell you could probably just gank the fuel maps from the s/c'ed model if you used a small enough turbo

    Re: Turbo?

    if it's all done right you should be ok but even on an 03' you don't want to cheap on parts. i could have parted together a kit for my 06' 6s for under 3g but i'd rather wait another month and get the extra 2g's for the full stand-alone unit.



    2006 Bright Island Blue 6s: stock 6 disc in dash, Hertz Hi-Energy 6.5" comps, MB Quart Ref 12", eclipse 5-channel sub amp.

    Car mods: Lowered on Mazdaspeed springs with Koni Yellow shocks, Racing beat front/rear sway bars with AWR end links, LED turn signals, tail lights, front side markers, 18" ADR Cypher rims, 55w HID's in low beam and fogs, 5% tint all the way around. No go fast mods yet...tuning and Mazda6 don't go well together .

    Steve a.k.a. ss3079: So this one lady goes, "These ignorant people who drive around blasting there music, they cant hear emergency vehicles"
    So that set me off, and I said "Well then why do they let deaf people drive?"
