gt is only about 25 hp more than the 2.2 with a turbo u will most likely be putting out like 100 hp similar to hahn's turbo for the 2.4's. if u put a turbo on a 2.2 the gt couldnt touch it unless it had a turbo as wellfarfrmnormal said:When I say tested I mean for 15000K or 20000K - a turbo on any car for less then that is not "tested". These motors were not made for that power and our tranny's can not handle it over an extended period of time.
IMO - for the money being put out on the turbo shoulda just got a GT
That tech hasn't done his homework at all. The getrag found in our cars is built to withstand 170lbs-ft of torque as listed at the GM Powertrain website. Any more than that and it's life expectancy dwindles. The auto tranny found in our cars can actually handle 205lbs-ft. Why is this? Because GM built it to also be used with the V6 in Grand Ams, Aleros and Malibus. In case you guys hadn't noticed, Hahn's prototype is an auto for that very reason.06blackbeauty said:the getrag's are good trannys. i have been told from a gm tech that the engine and tranny should be good for anything around 8 psi from a turbo
What reason do you have to back this up? The g5 is meant to be modified to go faster. You obviously have no idea what you are talking about or mabye your crazy.....farfrmnormal said:I just don't think you get what I am talking about. If you want a car for power the G5 is not it.
