1) Use the search feature on this site.

2) No, a tune is most defiantly not the only thing you will need. The injectors and fuel pump will need to be upgraded as well, and depending on what transmission you have you will need to add a few other things.

3) Turbocharging a GTO isn't a easy task, especially for someone that has 0 knowledge of turbos to begin with. My advice to you (if you really want forced induction) is to find a used P1SC procharger and put that on the car instead. You will still need to upgrade the fuel pump/injectors and get a good tune.

PS: you will get more help from experienced/knowledgable members on here if you type in complete sentences

Turbonator FTW..

I am sure someone with the updated version of te turbonator will chime in soon enough.

Also,Use the search feature and find out abt the 30 second t/c mod. That alone is good for unlocking 30whp.. Some 06s have seen upto 50whp.

Also do ask around about the best CAI. That should unlock a lot of power too. And while u're at it might as well research the exhaust washer mod. Your GTO will sound pretty cool.

That being said, do you have any tattoos?

Ive read about the turbonators im sorry but i think they are probably shit. I did research Air intakes best i found said 28 hp and like 25TQ but dont know if thats accurate.

as far as super chargers go all i would need is a fuel pump injectors and the super charger its self? then a tune?

1) yes turbonators are shit....
2) yes everyone else is smurfing with you, because it's apparent you haven't done any real research
3) yes, a fuel pump/injectors and a tune are all you need to run the supercharger. Don't expect to run more than 100-150whp over stock before needing to do other modifications to the engine.

You would be best off finding a used supercharger KIT, and not trying to piece the kit together yourself. Keep in mind that you will have to get the car towed to whatever shop will tune it after the parts are installed, or else you have a very high chance of blowing the engine.

Also, if you're automatic you should look into adding a transmission cooler to help the transmission live a little longer. Another thing to do would be adding a larger capacity transmission fluid pan which will also help keep it's temperature down with the added power.

Then you have absolutely no business starting a thread in the FI section about turbos.

I did probably 4-5 months of research before I dare post in someone else's thread, much less making my own.

This may seem like a dick response, but really, if you're not willing to educate yourself by reading and searching, and actually asking a legitimate question, you shouldn't be thinking about going turbo. There's no easy way to do it, no cheap way to do it, and you're honestly better off getting a SC (no slight meant to blower guys).

There's lots of good info in the FI, and the guys in here are very knowledgeable and friendly. You just have to do the legwork before you jump in.

^^ I agree. Nothing straight forward or easy about a turbo system in a GTO.

Hey douchebag, being in the military doesn't mean you're exempt from using proper English or doing your own research rather than have people do it for you. There are tons of military members on this site, myself included, and none of them throw that card as an excuse for their laziness.

Do some research, invest in spellcheck, and lose the attitude and maybe, just maybe, people will be willing to help you.

This thread...wow.

First off, you're not sending a text message to some shorty you met at the club last night. Try to type in a coherent fashion.

Secondly, don't get pissed off because you're treated like a retard when you talk (type) like a retard. If it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck, it must be a retard.

Third. Being in the military doesn't really make you that special. Sure, you're serving your country. But having spent the last 8 years serving myself, I know I'm not going out waiving my damn CAC card in the streets looking for handouts. Grow up.

By all means, I would sleep better and feel safer knowing you weren't "fighting" for me. I don't think you enlisted to serve or protect people. I think you enlisted because you wanted to be paid and/or have health care for your offspring, and to take care of responsibilities that you could not as a civilian, but created for yourself as one. You obviously have not enlisted for the education benefits. You weren't drafted, you chose your situation, and I owe you nothing. Please take my name off the list of folks you feel owe you for your service.

you can look me up on this forum, I genuinely try to help pretty much everyone that comes on here looking for help. Funny you took offense to my post, as I thought it to be pretty mild and fairly straight forward considering you came on here sounding like a damn idiot, having done no research at all. you're lucky you weren't completely crucified. If mind mild response has you all bent out of shape, you don't belong here. There's plenty of internet tough guys, I'm not one of them, and they'll drive you crazy.

That said, I could give a shit about your bike and what it can and can't do. And depending on where you live, you better be prepared to back your shit up because there's plenty of goats on this site that will eat your bike alive.

And I honestly could give a shit about you fighting overseas for me. You're just another douchebag that joined the military so he can act like everyone owes him something. There's tons of soliders that put their lives on the line every day and that don't come in here and wave their dick around like you are. You're a disrespect to them, what they stand for and the uniform they wear.

I have the utmost respect for all of them, many of my own family and most of my friends included, and what they do, and support them in any way I can. So go smurf yourself, sell your goat because you're a Lonestar, and get back on your bike where you belong.

And exactly what part of the comment sucks? The part that it is most likely the truth? It was my opinion and like an asshole, everyone has one. The post was multi-faceted and coherent. Enlisting in the military as a resort to take care of your civilian created responsibilities does not give anyone the right to act like someone owes them. Furthermore, individuals who practice this approach are more likely than not to act in a way similar to most people that work at say Wal Mart or a fast food job. They begrudgingly perform their duties half-assed in a "have to" as opposed to a "want to" manner, and can put other soldiers at risk. I too have previous military experience, and I am confident I would do a much better job of protecting myself than the OP.
