My Wife's New Toy

While DI.net was down my wife and I bought a new toy.

2004 Chevy Monte Carlo SS Supercharged
Black with Black interior. 16K miles.

So far we love it.

Sweet. I've always liked the styling of the new Monte (although the original is a classic IMNSHO). How's the performance? Have you dragged with her in the 300 yet ;)

Axle, you can't put a turbo on something already supercharged, can you?

In general, yes, you can. In this specific application, you ditch the supercharger for the turbocharger.

Many 6V92 Detroit Diesel Allison engines came from the factory with both.

Not common fron the factory but it is commont to have two power adders in the racing scene.

You just must remmeber your turbo will be feeding the super charger. In the early 90's Toyota did it with teh MR-2. After they got the idleing down pat, the car was fing scary.

Actually, it was HKS who made a "twin charger" package for the 88-89 4AGZE MKIs. However, it's a whole lot easier and many will argue the end result will be faster with just a turbo...
