It could if a kit for the V6 had as much R&D as a mass produced kit for V8's does. Not knocking Andy's kits by any means, they are great. But he does leave you with a little "extra" work to do, and the pipe routing for the V6 set up is not an easy one to his credit and to our install nightmare lol.

Don't be absurd about being the only one who can mod without breaking things. The conversation that was had earlier, and is no doubt why you brought it up again, related that when you mod a car for more performance, it will eventually have "problems" as Brandon said. Unless a car is built from the ground up for a specific amount of power (like factory, for factory specified power), something will always be put under more strain than it was built to handle for the same period of time. It has nothing to do with whether it was done right or wrong. Something will give, either the part or time, and time doesn't give so... And I'd be knocking on wood if I were you. Just because you haven't had any problems yet, doesn't mean you won't. I hope you don't but it is statistically unlikely, and would defy the physics of stress.

Kit (procharger/Vortech) superchargers are typically completely engineered. Everything bolts in place. Having helped do a complete Procharger install, it was done in one full day (he already swapped pumps), but Andy's kits still had some rough edges (at the time) that needed to be worked out or figured out before being put on and took, I think it was, 3-4 plus the exhaust has to be redone (at least at the dump location). Simply having to do the exhaust side of a turbo install makes it more time consuming than a super install, it's half the system...
I did my turbo kit in a day, took like 10 hours?? To compare with 3 people helping me (one guy who had done it before) it took us 6 hours to do my vortech kit. The crossover is a bit of a PITA but eh?

As for as knocking on wood I'm not worried, most of the time I drive this car like I stole it. Maybe in another 90k I'll start to worry about something.

And I'm no amazing mechanic or anything either, I'm a computer science major. Everything I do came from me reading, or looking at pictures, and going "no way I'm going to pay someone to do this" ...

Re: Turbo Questions.

bro, skip the f/a/i and go nitrious. a big thing anyone forgot to mention is that with forced air induction is that **** is probably goin to break. so on top of the 3k to 5k u can spend on a s/c t/c u will still have spend more cash on replacement parts as u go. u can get a good kit for about 500.00 is the average. and a 10lb bottle goes anywhere from 30 to 50 bucks, u can go from 35hp boost to 150hp. but dont go over 100hp boost on the v6. it has been made very same to use nitrious, even for the average joe who doesnt really know about cars bout still wants too have some fun.

You run a higher risk of failed componets when spraying boost as the pressure is almost instanteous multiplied in a the engine of a Nitrous induced rage attack. While spray is fun it's only temporary and well your car doesn't always perform with the additional power. I like to have power on demand everytime. Nitrous depending on your usage habits can add up to alot of money through time and damage.
