I have a 2005 4.0 v6. Im looking into turboing it. I just want to know how well does it work? What are good brands to go with? Im shooting for 500 hp. And im trying to keep it under 7 grand. Any advice will be gratefully appreciated. Thanks

You'll never brake 500 hp unless you manage to twin turbo it and in that case itd probably cost 10k cause you'll have to change your inter cooling as well. Better off with a engine swap

Re: turbo advice please.

I want to keep it a v6. I dont want the weight of a v8. Has anyone used a universal turbo kit? How well do they bolt up? And does anyone know where I should go for low compression pistons and different cams and what not? Im just trying to get all my eggs in one basket. Its going to be a winter project. Thanks kirpy

Re: turbo advice please.

you can easily brake 500hp with the correct setup single turbo system, the problem is your motor wont take it... you wont be able to do it for 5k either unless you are VERY handy can can develop the piping/headers yourself.. and even then the motor is not strong enough to take that much hp/tq so you will have to build the engine.

I would say 350rwhp is about the limit to be safe and keep it a daily driver. That would be about 425 at the flywheel hp wise.

the universal kits are probably mostly junk, its going to be an expensive one off project, the engine build to do it right will cost a ton (not sure depends on how deep you go but could be 3k-6k) then the turbo setup expect 6k~ then another 1k for tuning and probably another 1k for misc crap that you figure out on the way lol.

is weight really worth that much? What are you needing low weight for? if its autox a turboed car may not be the best way to go.
