DSNY FN said:So I was wandering around some automotive sites and came across superchargers so my question is does anyone know if there is a manufacturer that produces a turbo or supercharger for the 3.6 litre that will bolt on to our trucks?
Well, you could always make your own, don't forget the pump for the oil return line EDIT eh?:DeForger said:...Now if they made a kit like they do for the Corvettes it would be nice. They place the turbos at the back of the exhaust. You have to run oil feed lines, oil return lines, and the charged air tube to the air intake. It could go where the resonators are or modify the muffler and fit it in there. I don't need this for my Acadia but it is always nice to know it's available. >

I thought the sleeper 12 second Dodge Caravans with the factory turbo motor were pretty cool, but something like that on the Acadia would never fly around here.
That turbo is on my 1995 Trans Am. It has picked up some weeds/debris but never scraped anything. The Dodge FWD turbo setups (like in my Daytona) all put the turbo behind the motor- hard to get to, but good placement for less lag.DeForger said:Hi Blue,
...This picture you posted with the turbo is in a Caravan? The return oil line has a little mud around it. Ground clearance is low. With a little imagination anything is possible. I heard that a lot in Disney but it fits here too.
The 5L40 5-speed in the G8 is rated to handle only up to 260 lb-ft of torque, so I wonder if they do anything to beef it up prior to the supercharger install (stock, the LY7 in the G8 puts out 248 lb-ft).DSNY FN said:The dealer I bought my truck from just ordered a supercharger for a 3.6 litre G8 so they are being made I just wonder if the application would cross over without modification to the Acadia the G8 is rear drive and the engine thus mounted differently than in our trucks.
Who is the vendor for the PCM flash? Do you have a link by chance?mrvids said:Closest thing I could find was a PCM retune for after your mods.

2007-2008 GMC GMC Acadia 3.6L ***Customized PCM (You must send your PCM for modification)
Need VIN and PCM Service number
Guess that means it was cheaper to build up here and is gonna last longer than if it was built in the states oke:.That 3.6 motor is built in Canada. Sad
