1. Will they fit? Probably not.

2. Can you make them fit? Anything is possible.

3. How are you going to tune for these turbos? Your not just going to slap them on and use the OEM ECU tune are you? Because that would be a HUGE mistake.

Nah I'm good friends with the people @ BoostLogic and they will do all the tuning I need

It will get new front mount intercooler, new injectors and whatever else we find that seems like a necessary item to do the "Texas Mile"


and on a side note:it's the Ex wifes car and I still work on it for her, I changed the Hubs Yesterday and now I don't wanna see that car again for awhile

All things considered what is your power aim with the car? How many horses/ how much tq you hoping for...

Your main limitation will eventually become the trans, which will probable disistegrate with anything more than 300 ft/bs of torque!

True, but not necessarily a problem that can't be overcome. There are plenty of shops out there that can beef up a 4t65e. I've had my transmission rebuilt to withstand the stress from additional HP. At a minimum, he'll need a basic rebuild, a HD input shaft, trans cooler and an upgrade to a single chain. But with those turbos he'll probably want a higher stalling TC too.

good luck OP, and keep us updated
