at sccoa we contacted a comapny that will do us a custom setup for the SC's to replace the superchargers with turbos , and the most possible route will be using the 3.8lx manifold , by doing so LX bird would also be able to use the setup just with lower boost.

if interested check the info

You might consider opting for the supersixmotorsports.com upper box intake with the bigger throttly body opening.

Sounds like a coo project. I'm really interested in seeing it done as I've been considering a turbo setup in the back of my mind. I'll probably setlle for a supercharger unless you guys can get this project done successfully and the price isn't too high.

same here i think it will be great and i always wonder how the car would do with a turbo on it so yea i would love to see how it all comes out but that also brings in my mind about a twin turbo kit i wonder if that can be done but yea i would love to know more about it and how much all this would cost to get put on our cars

That guy Stocker 89 is a riot. He doesn't know the first thing about forced induction or how turbo's work. The sad thing is, he thinks he's right...LOL.

Yeah and another sad thing is that he lives 20 miles from me. So I had to hold back my frustrations with his posts.

A turbo 3.8L or 4.2L would be way kickass in a '96-'97. It would even be cooler than a Vortech 4.6L if the power levels were similar.

Yes the '96-'97 3.8L's are stronger. Not sure what, if anything in them is forged.

But I would definately take a turbo or two over a Vortech or a roots-blower.

I bet rancher knows the limits of a 3.8 as he has a 96 with a vortech on it.

when doing a twin turbo setup on a 3.8 do you have to remove powersteering pump or is there away around it,also is the supersix air box really tall,because I built a 4inch cowl induction hood for my bird so I got room to put something in it.

the supersix box intake fits under the stock hood.

I'm sure there's a way of retaining the power steering pump when making a twin turbo setup. If one were to purchase an AJE racing tubular k-member it would probably make a turbo setup much easier.

i was under my dads 91 lincon the other day while the tranny is in peices on the work bench and noticed that the one manifold goes stright down,not sure if its like this on both sides but id emagin so, and since its the same motor as ours just flip them upside down and wola perfect for a turbo

yes yes i know im a genius hold your thanks till some one does it and knows it works hehhehe
