3.2 Twin turbo

Has anyone tried a twin turbo set up in a 2000 Intrepid with a 3.2? What would it take to do one?

Lots of time and money. Not to mention that our transmissions would probably implode the moment you floored it.

No, and way too much money.

Garage
you're looking at $500 plus just for the air/fuel cal, which hasn't been done much. then you're looking at all the turbo work obviously, custom headers, custom intake. If you've got a ton of cash and a ton og time and can do the fab work: go for it!! You can be the first. Gonna need to look into strengthening the trans too, IIRC the only other semi successful turbo project got mothballed when he grenaded the transmission.

Well it is possible, but more in parts then the car would be worth. Trans would explode otherwise, it'd be a lot of custom fabrication $$

IMO if you were 100% fixed on a twin turbo it would probably be cheaper to just buy a car with a turbo already in it. If yr just interested in the added performance there are definitely a lot of cheaper routes to getting that added hp.

There's a video on Youtube of a TT Intrepid. Can't believe nobody's seen it.

That's is frustrating to read; when has it ever been an investment to modify a vehicle cosmetically or performence wise. Everyone knows it's a money pit that NEVER turns a profit, let alone break even. It's the challenge of the project and the fun of the process to the finished goods.

I've turbo'd a few cars in the day. Our's require the extra time though since there really isn't no "off the shelf" kit to bolt on. Our PCM's pose the biggest barrier since they are not unlocked, so you're looking at an independent fuel system. Aside from that the rest is some fab work, you'll need too modify or custom build manifolds and the tubing to feed everything. Rest is parts and labor arranging things and bolting them on.

The part that gets me is, everyone is quick to put down these transmissions. But at the same time, no one *has* turbo'd one so who's to say it will sh!t the bed or work just fine? Anyone that has made attempts and failed, a lot of variables could have contributed to their success or downfall. So budgeting to rebuild the transmission with OEM or better-than OEM parts can go a long ways in this regard. Properly tunning the system to ease on the transmission can go a long ways too.

Lest we forget, they did make twin turbo kits for the Prowlers, which had the same 3.5L engine and 42LE transmissions as our cars, with the exception of final drive gear differences and PCM programming.

The turbo prowlers have a Rear wheel version of our transmission able to hold a lot more power then our front wheel drive version. It might be the same named transmission, but quite different.

Thought it was the same transmission in the prowlers. Only difference being an adapter plate on the front of the bellhousing to accept a driveshaft or torque tube..whatever it's called.

I'm not trying to start a war, but based on information I've read in multiple sources, that's incorrect. The engine and transmission are identical to what's used on the LH models. Ronbo, you're correct. I know from personal experience, been under more than one Prowler in my time.

Quote:
he Prowler featured a powertrain lifted from Chrysler's LH-cars, a 3.5 L Chrysler SOHC V6 engine 24v producing 214 hp (160 kW; 217 PS) at 5850 rpm. For the 1999 model year the engine was replaced with a more powerful 253 hp (189 kW; 257 PS) at 6400 rpm version of the engine. Both engines were coupled to a 4-speed Autostick automatic transmission. The transmission was located at the rear of the vehicle and joined to the engine by a flexible driveshaft that rotated at engine speed, an arrangement similar to that used by the C5 Corvette, Porsche 944 and Alfa Romeo 75, and helped to facilitate a desirable 50-50 front-rear weight distribution.

A606/42LE

The 42LE was an upgraded version of the 41TE modified for longitudinal engines. It debuted in 1993 on the LH cars. It is strengthened with a reworked final drive unit, barreled axle shafts, and upgraded clutch packs. The major modification to a N-S drivetrain while maintaining front wheel drive was accomplished by adding a differential to the transmission case, which was driven by means of a transfer chain from the output shaft of the low/reverse clutch assembly at the rear of the transmission case.

Applications:

42LE
1999-2004 Chrysler 300M
1993-2004 Chrysler Concorde
1994-2001 Chrysler LHS
2001-2002 Chrysler Prowler
1994-1996 Chrysler New Yorker
1993-2004 Dodge Intrepid
1993-1997 Eagle Vision
1997-2001 Plymouth Prowler

This is always some thing I wanted to look in to! My dad was a transmission mechanic for about 40 years so I think if I got the books and tools required he would build it for me! I would think it would need to be refreshened al the very least I have 205000 miles on it! What about a single turbo or even a super charger! I just think it would be cool making a sleeper out of an Intrepid no one would expect that!
