Thought that engine went better with a supercharger.

Re: Turbochargeing MX6 ???

Well?? There is NO room on the front of the engine to mount anything unless it was driven by a long shaft!! Besides in this case a turbo should be easy as the original manifolds can stay and the turbo can be mounted between the two..Remember it's a V6..
Besieds if it went well with a blower imagine how it would go with a good turbo???

Re: Turbochargeing MX6 ???

As the MX6 is related to the Probe, I would have a look for Turb Probes as well. I belive it has been done before, although I can't remember any details.

Re: Turbochargeing MX6 ???

We are purchasing a latter model motor. Lower compression and fabing everything before fitting a high flow T3/4.Then hopefully everything will fit..Finding bigger injectors is the big issue..I'v heard that side feed Nissan injectors can fit but the fuel rails need modding..But we'll get to that part latter...

Yes I know thats why I started this in Probe MX6 section ????

Austrack has a sports sedan with twin turbo's and makes unbelievable power for a 2.5 Ltr...But thats WAY over the top for this street car, besides its front wheel drive and std g/box...

Why don't you have a look at the Eunos 800 range. They used the same KL block, it just had a shorter stroke and displaced 2.3L. It was also fitted factory standard with a MillerCycle supercharger. They moved the battery to the boot.

Yes, I know its a v6, I have one.
