Re: Turbo on 2nd Gen GT
Yes... (insert asterix here).
To get the engine management to play properly with the turbo, some tuning will probably need to be adjusted. That's assuming you are running the same block. A straight yes or no is not applicable here as there's a few variables involved. Boosted engines typically run at a lower compression ratio than a naturally aspirated since the added air will increase your final compression. Once there, is your drive train going to be able to handle the added torque and horse power? If your sole goal is a run down a quarter mile, it can be done quickly, if you're wanting to make a performing cruiser, you have to look at the car from the radiator on mack to the differential.
Ever notice that there's so many high performance parts available for GM products?
Did you ever think that maybe they NEED them?
