You’re gonna spend more time, money, and frustration on boosting that endeavor than just selling it while it still runs and buying something that’s already boosted and what you want

Why im here? If i were to disclose the reason of my intrusion it would be considered... "weird." (Better term than last.) to say the least. Now if you thought you were putting me in my place with that... no. But to answer your question, no. I dont know were to find a SC. Why? Cause i usually drive a GS!

What does Smokey mean by "it's gonna pop."?

I mean yea you could ultimately find a sc a me day who knows where from how much ect but you wouldn’t be able to use it on another engine unless it’s the same one, my suggestion for the turbo is go ahead get a large one since your not expecting 200,000 miles anyway and boost the hell out of it til you get your rated power your looking for. Then when it pops throw a v8 swap into it and use the same turbo with that engine and create more power than previously but will take a lot of money idk anyone who’s put a v8 in this frame

All seriousness, do you have a budget? RPW used to make manifolds for the 6g75 but they were like a grand each and if anyone can help you out it’ll be them. But, it’s just going to be a little expensive. Everything for the GT is

Im keeping this thing forever first off. Its a work of art that just keeps going. Second of all. Im at 199,450 miles so i am definitely crossing 200,000 and many many more. I do have a budget.. if i didnt i probably would do a v8 and turbo situation but that was why im looking for this old sc. Figured i could find one with dust on it someone just wants to get rid of. But ive never thought about that chevy 3.8 sc. Ill have to do some research. Im going to put in the hours on this thing. She is worth it. Just beat a 2018 ford raptor the other night. He was pretty upset in his 52,000 truck.

How about a supercharger from a Chevy 3.8? OEM, lots of support, would work with mild alteration. Not hard to find. About the right size. Both are transverse engines too.


Thanks for the help guys 🙂 ill keep doing my research

Rear mount turbo is still always an option ;)

I'm a parts dealer, I'll get you a deal on what I can get for you if you opt to go that route. I don't know what your budget is like. Cap the build around 450hp though, or else it gets insanely expensive (450hp to 500hp will cost about $3000 in engine work). It's stuff I'm familiar with, it's just that the 6G75 is a really expensive platform to make power with, and very few companies are interested in making the parts. Nobody wants to stock them either, so all are one offs, which adds highly to costs. Ross is the onl one who readily does the pistons, at a cost around 1000usd depending how they feel, and the best deal on rods is a company in Australia I've found doing Pejero stuff. I'm still trying at getting Wiseco to take on the pistons, and Brian Crower to do the rods, but need some specs from someone willing to send me a piston and rod, or to get one from a junkyard which I haven't been able to find. I can get this stuff added on to company part lists, it just takes effort from me and other people who are serious about it.

It'll sound silly, but for a high power build right now, swap in a 4G69, keep your rear end, and use an evo 8/9 transmission. You can make up to 1200hp cheaper on a 4G69 than a 6G75, beyond that it levels off to both being insanely expensive (your rear end won't do 1200hp, however)

Hey hope you find what your looking for, I love my gs I sold my girl for 1k when she was going to drop 3k on a car anyway, were at 260k on the motor only 90k in a used trans, can’t really complain, got another 40k til timing belt needs done, it’s a great car, these things last when taken care of. If I ever get deeper pockets that 4cyl will become a ls3 and the car may become a 4x4 for selective 2x4 but til then it’s a daily driver and serves my girl well, and the money she paid for it I’ve given her back in tires and other parts so win win, and plus when or if she blows the engine will be a fast track to the swap process at least speeds it up a bit.

Hmmm. Thats a lot to think on. But boy that would do some fucking work! Man that sounds strong reliable and mean. I like it. Ive been looking into those chevy3.8 sc i think the company is eaton? Itll take some fabrication but might be possible. Idk. Ima have to do some real time thinking. Id rather just wait and get that engine anand transmission. Hmm. Have you guys seen or heard of this electric pro/turbo charger (idk what its true classification is) but its made by torqamp supposedly spins as fast as a turbo, has a generator which takes stress of your alternator, aanndd things pushes 5-6psi. Could put it on any car. super easy install. Just costs 2,500...

The torque amp turbo flows about 16lbs/minute of air. It'll give a huge torque increase down low, then choke the engine up top, as shown by their own dyno charts in testing (350z). It's too low flowing to work on the 4G69 even, it's more for 1.5L engines and smaller that are NA that want to make around 175hp

As for that V8, it's another step more obscure and will get even more expensive to build and make power with. It'll also eat up engine bay space you don't have to spare

Damn man i feel you. Now on the torqe amp they made this one way bypass valve to help with high air flow applications. And on top of that i have an awd 4speed. So my rpms are always down low anyways! Redline is like 7200rpms. But my idle is like 700rpms

If you're gonna be racing below 3400rpm (did the math), go for it. After 1500rpm (did the math) boost will begin to drop, leaving you with a really short powerband if you wanted to get any use out of the thing. Aka, you'll never even hit MIVEC range with a torqamp powerband. It's just gonna be a lot of extra heat for no power gain. And yes, while higher torque looks good on a dyno sheet, high torque at low RPM means you need to be in a higher gear to use it than normal, which then drops the output to the wheels, making the entire power gain negligible as you could have just chosen a lower gear to have had the same result, without having had to buy the torqamp. According to their own data, the IAT will rise by about 20c once the thing runs out of flow as well, which is going to further hurt top end power. Consider it the world's lowest flowing supercharger, but at the cost of a rear mount turbo that'll add 200hp


And no, I don't think switching to a manual rack is worth it. The power steering is such minimal drag and weight for how much better it makes things. Even on dedicated track cars, unless the thing is super light (sub 2000lbs with driver and fluids), most guys won't go that far.

Yeah keep the power steering

If you’re looking to delete anything for a track car (which no track will let you bring an SUV like the Endeavor), then you’ll be looking at removing all of the Air Conditioning components and getting a serpentine belt that works with the AC delete

I don't know of any track that wouldn't let him come play. Are you speaking from experience, or stories and guesses?

Full size pickup trucks come out on open lapping days even. And drag strip, I've seen a little of everything from open wheelers to monster trucks on street legal nights. Even the occasional ATV and snowmobile comes out
