turbo 2.4?

hello

i would like to know if anyone has heard or put an aftermarket turbo kit onto a2.4 liter ecotec in my 06 ss. If so how much boost it can take. The engine does not come stock with a turbo. I know the 2.0 is good at 18psi and i know the engine blocks are the same. I dont want to rebuilt the engine with forged parts just to run 10 psi so if anyone knows that would be a big help.

hahn has a turbo kit (i had a bad customer service experiance with hahn though), vulcan has an ecotec turbo kit that will work on both the 2.4L and 2.2L motors, guy at vulcan seems to know what he is talking about and i plan on buy his ic piping set after the new year

welcome to the site.


Hahn makes a kit for our car but imo, its overrated and to too expensive.

Best bet is too go custom. Itll cost you around 2k with all brand new parts.

with a 16g turbo youll be able to make well over 300hp and only around, 14psi. I wouldnt boost more than 18psi on this motor, but i honestly dont think you need more than say 315hp, so around 15psi.

no need for go go juice.

youll make plenty of power with just the turbo, unless youre just looking for the numbers.


stock internals youll be safe at around 320. anything higher you run the risk of breaking something.

these motors are pretty tough, anything above 320 i would reccomend pistons and rods. just keep conservative on your boost and tune and youll be fine.

turbo + nitrous = dead car without good internals, good luck testing that out, nitrous making power is different from most other ways you can get a car to make power, and you can drive a car with your feet - (you can test out what you read online about a 170hp car making 300hp safely) - but that doesnt make it a good idea
