Default v6 performance mods?

I know from searching that there isn't much out there for modding the 3.0 V6 turbo motor. Aside from the Nordic stuff $$$ OMG $$$

So, I have played with turbo cars for a long time and wonder if basic turbo mods will work on these cars.

Like a boost controller. Would that work? Anyone know how much the stock computer will compensate for before it leans out? I know these are low boost motors, but I figure somebody should know.

Boost controller won't work, the V6 doesn't have a waste gate. Not that a boost controller works on the 4 pots, but that's a whole other story.

How about picking up a spare turbo/exhaust manifold and bolting it onto the non-turbo side of the engine so you have a twin turbo V6. Push ~10 psi of boost and you'd have something incredibly cool on your hands.

I know of a built V6 turbo in the works. We should see more of it in the summer.


What you cant tell from this pic is the scale. It just a little guy. Only 83mm compared to 90 of the 4s

That's what the rods and pistons are for

while we're at it throwing together a *******ized 9-5 3.0T rocketship, there has got to be a manual box from some opel that will fit the V6.
