    the only issue with that is, that chevy went direct injection and claims to get more power and more mpgs than the ecoboost. GM loves NA and pushrods lol

    I just think itd be cool for them to Boost the motor they already have maybe lower the compresion. Mazda seems to have good luck with turboing direct injected engines.

    Supposedly the 2014 CTS will have an optional TT 3.6

    If this is actually produced I will be trading in my current '10 CTS

    ^That. also the upcoming grand national thingy.

    This is why they went away from a header on the newest 3.6 v6. Look at the flange area......what does that rectangle area where the exhaust bolts up to look like? and how much room does that bad boy have to support something that whistles off the side of it with a 4 bolt flange? This has been covered many times man lol. Its just the waiting game. Im pretty sure some guys have bolted turbos to the 5th gen v6 camaros already to old 3.6 and now the new header less version.

    I don't think there's enough room to bolt a turbo to the head. Seemed really close to the shock tower in the '13 I almost bought.

    There's always room for boost . If its true about the 2014 CTS, i think that'll be my new lust car instead of the SS

    My Best friend who typically loves rice, wants to buy a 350 because "I can put a cam, buy headers and get a tune, for my car for the same price as a cam for my toyota" I finally got through to him. the only thing now is, "I wish i could find an OHC GM i dont know anything about underhead cams" I had to laugh at that point. progress comes slowly

    I am friends with a guy in Arizona, he was telling me his company just ordered up some of these crate motors destined to go in some Mach 1's. Oh the blasphemy
