I'm curious if it has been done before, or if maybe there is one available for purchase? I know it sounds pretty crazy to put a turbo on a intrepid but hey why not.

My 94 3.3 sounds like a turbo with the short-ram intake I put on it. At certain positions of the throttle body valve it makes the incoming air whistle and it sounds like the turbos. I've faked a few people out who rode in the car and thought it had a turbo.

Short ram air intake?? Yeah mine will whistle too, I custom rigged a honda del sol high performance air intake kit to fit on my intrepid, its sounds stupid but it works and has increased the performance, I tried usin the chrome pipe that came with the kit but I need to cut it to make it fit. I keep seein all these exhaust jobs done to these intrepids, basically cuttin out middle muffler and usin the end resonator as the muffler, and put a straight pipe or "s" pipe through the center.......?

One of the biggest problems with running turbo's on our cars is that we have two exhaust manifolds. Being that Turbos work off exhaust pressure, we would need a Twin-
Turbo setup. These tend to be extremely expensive because there has to be a boost regulator in between the two turbos and the intake. I'm not sure if any company is offering a twin turbo for our cars, but personally, a supercharger, while less efficient at higher RPM, provides more low end torque = better off the line performance.
hope this helps

the problem with a supercharger is that while it would provide some nice low end torque, in doing so it would leave your car about 50 feet in front of your tranny going ::erk erk erk klunk::

not familiar with the auto trannies in the first gen cars, how stout *are* they? some of the performance mods i have in mind may put some strain on the tranny.... are performance upgrades for the tranny available?

anything that produces a lot of power is going to tear up the tranny. the r/t and 300m push around 250 at the crank. i wouldn't go much higher than that. also, i'd stay away from NOS because it's such a harsh jerk it'd probably shred your tranny right there. the whole reason these engines are designed to produce maximum output at high revs is because the trannies are so weak if they made any low-end power you could easily go thru transimissions a couple per year.

if you want some real fun, get the tranny and rear end out of one of those LS1 Impala SSs from about 95-96. then drop a 440 HEMI in the engine bay. that's my plan when my trep as we know it dies in 8 years or 200k more miles.
