Wow, that's bad. Especially for the SRT4 owners who ordered turbo kits.

True

I think we'll survive though. The Eaton m62 has yet to be fully harnessed.

Nah, we've still got Hahn. There's someone that posted on here about an Ion running that kit. That does suck that they're gone though.

Ant from Psi Fi has his personal car with the Twin kit up and running. I think hes planning on getting all tuned and trying to sell the designed to a company to mass produce. So its still a possibility.

Doesn't having the twin-charge setup run a risk of some serious damage to the engine? I know from owning a Supra that the turbos had a bad habit of blowing head gaskets left and right, I myself having gone through two of them before finally switching to the metal head gasket. I'm not an expert on forced induction systems, and brand new to the supercharging side of it, but I would think something along the lines of a metal head gasket would be needed, yes, or no?

Don't get me wrong, the idea sounds great, and I imagine it could yield very good gains, but I haven't heard anyone mention the effects of something going VERY wrong yet.

yep and so does a pulley, and half the other stuff we do to our cars.... but the head gasket isn't an issue, he is using a very high quality one... i don't know what the link is to it though

that's too bad. I know a few members have there setups on cobalts. Good luck with warrantys down the road. I know personally I am waiting till GM comes out with something. I trust vendors for most small things but when it comes to actually touching the motor it's best to go the route best driven.

Cool, just wonderin about that. Personally I'm gonna wait for the stage kit. I agree for small things, vendors are ok, but for actual motor modification, better to go through GM. Yeah I'll pay more, but it'll be covered under my warrantee. I know vendors have their own warantees, but I guess it boils down to a comfort issue.
