I would say it depends on the amount of boost.

Short answer, no.. Since you won't be running 10 pounds or less of boost with twins.


Bullitts are better than Bullets

Follow up question. What would one need to upgrade in order for twin turbos to be possible?

Shorter answer, yes. Depending if engine is forged. Ha ha ha ha

Why wouldn't you? All you have to do is set up the system properly. The number of turbos won't increase the boost by themselves. And with twins you would typically use a smaller turbo than a single and they spool up quicker.

This is very subjective, because it depends on a lot of factors, but "boost" is not one of them.

What boost is, is a measurement of restriction between your compressor and cylinder head, typically measured in the intake manifold and it is NOT a direct representation of horsepower. Imagine a stock Focus ST turbo at 20 psi. Ok, now imagine a GT40r at 20 psi. Boost is the same, but is airflow? No. CFM is what is more important, because THAT is what determines power.

The answer is yes, your 3.7 can handle twins. The real question, is what kind of twins can it handle, and on what kind of tune.

Two small turbos will have blistering response and awesome low end torque, but may fall off on the top end before they really make serious horsepower. Well, torque is what has a tendancy to break things, not horsepower, so lets shift gears a little here.

Two larger turbos will have the potential to flow very well on the top end, and give you a horsepower figure that would justify spending the amount of money Twins would need. However, they would likely incur a large amount of lag, so you would either have to learn how to drive a BT car, or just accept your car will lag. The good news here, is they would avoid that blistering low end torque that we talked about above.

The best option I feel is a small / medium sized turbo with a large AR. It is easy to get a small turbo to spool slow, it is harder to get a big turbo to spool fast. The larger AR will also artificially increase the top end capability of the smaller turbo, and make it breathe like a turbo slightly larger than it actually is.

So, a quick recap: Boost is irrelevent, CFM and spool are what you are concerned with. What rpms the power band starts, and how far out you want to carry that power band.

Personally i'm partial to a single vs twins, but thats just opinion. The hellion kits are not the best from what i understand. The exhaust sides tend to get choked up on the GT's, not sure if the V6 is any better, but even still it will likely make enough power to blow up a stock engine, so it should be enough to keep you happy.

If you are running low boost like that then it is a complete waste of money for twins. And having 2 there doesn't mean it spools quicker. If you want a very quick spool you want a ball bearing, self-lubricating turbo. Much more efficient than having a twin turbo or even bi-turbo set up.

With twins you pretty much double the cost of what a single would be, so if you aren't running super high boost then a single is all that's needed.

well your only options are a single unless you get it custom made lol. ^^ either can be made to work in either case, but it takes a very good understanding of the turbos you are using, the engine they will be going on, operating range, tune, fueling ... There is a LOT to consider to maximize bang for your buck.

Any year if they're stock hopefully if they're not I know I probably won't have a chance just because of the fact that a v6 will be racing a v8

Just for clarification. You mean the Camaro SS right? Because there is a Chevy Cobalt SS also

Do you know where I can find good single turbos any you would suggest or would even use in your own car

Twin turbos

If you go against the old LT1 Camaro then you may have a chance. If you go against anything newer with an LS motor you will need work done to win.

A 3.7 with a tune and a good driver stands a very good chance against an LS Fbody .. assuming the Fbody is stock and the driver sucks.

If either of these aren't true, then the 3.7 has no chance.

If it's an SS LT1, it's the same scenario as the LS1 cars.

Either way I want to put work time to either go turbo or supercharger I just need to find some I know I can find superchargers easily I just can't find any turbos

Reaction time means nothing, unless your running heads up. Even then, if you can react fast but suck at getting off the line, you are still going to get beat to the 60' and probably the rest of the way down the track.

What's your 60' time?

Reaction time is only good if heads up like stated.
You can sit at the tree for 2 minutes after the light goes, and still run 9's 10's etc.

I think they meant 60 foot time. If you ever raced at a 1/4 mile track it will be on the time slip.
