Question V6 Turbo?

Is there any possibility of getting some turbo installed on a V6 Grand Cherokee?

Re: V6 Turbo?

8 psi at max but looking it over just not worth boosting a 4500 lbs truck with a V6 to that ... many other rides out there that can do so much better ... I WAS probably the closest person on wanting to get it done but have steered away from that direction because a V6 Jeep is just not worth boosting IMHO

Re: V6 Turbo?

Well usually its best to build the engine up to handle boost... at that point you could pretty much do anything with it. Just really depends on how much money you want to put into it.

Boosted and built up V6 would be pretty interesting though...and i think it would be a little easier than the V8 guys since you SHOULD have more room than we have.

Re: V6 Turbo?

as u mentioned if one did have the money and resources yes it would be an amazing build to see but if I'm going to pour that much $$$ into boosting a V6 rather start out with a stronger platform

Re: V6 Turbo?

Yeah,as everyone here has said you can put a turbo on,it'll cost about the 4500 dollar mark and you'll have to limit the boost to no more than 7-8 pounds. The factory pistons just have no room to take any punishment. Problem is,with only that much boost the BEST you can expect for horsepower is 315. (using the basic turbo formula of 14 pounds on an ideal engine will double the horsepower, so half that will add 50% more power). The cost to performance benefit just isn't there. Now if you're feeling rich and want something unique-build that engine to take the boost and crank it up to about 21 pounds or so and you should have about 525 hp(using the same ideal engine formula). Nobody knows what the rest of the stock v-6 drivetrain parts are good for, but i'd imagine you'd find out pretty quick at that level. This is all assuming that the engine is designed for a turbo and makes efficient use of the boost. You may have to run a higher amount to actually hit that mark.

Food for thought though.....

Someone with knowledge and especially fabrication skills could do it for less...but it will still not necessarily be cheap. A new turbo is typically 750-1000 bucks from what I have seen.

It all depends on what one is looking to do. I would not bother modifying a 3.7 V6 if my goal was to run a 12 second 1/4 mile. It would take too much work to the point where you'd spend more money replacing parts that broke while trying to get there than the cost of the turbo kit itself. But, if I wanted something that I could make reasonably quick enough to outrun most cars on the street, just for the sake of having fun? Sure, why not. If a 3.7 WK weighs about 4500 lbs, 8 lbs could get you into the high 14's I think. Which is bolt-on Hemi territory.

It all depends on what you want.
