Turbocharging a Chrysler Pacifica

    Got on this kick yesterday looking at Popular hotrodding online.


    A remote mounted turbocharger that would fit my ls1 camaro, BUT I
    thought after looking at the web page why not on the Pacifica. Remote
    mounted turbo. No kit for the pacifica, but from what I see they have
    looks very easy to fabricate a setup.


    And looking around on the net, there's not much performance stuff for
    the 3.5L But after looking at http://www.turbominivan.com was thinking
    that a turbo would be cool on the Pacifica. Shockingly, the wife

    Saw a link to a Pacifica called "Oblivion"
    http://www.oblivionperformance.com/oblivion_pics.html but way too over
    the top for my tastes. Interestingly enough, they somehow stuck a
    freakin Novi supercharger in there.

    You might be interested in this thread on the 300M Enthusiast's forums:

    Topic is remote turbos specific to the 300M which as you know, uses the
    3.5L. STS is mentioned in the discussion.

    Thanks, Bill. Checked it out and will watch the thread.

    I'm skeptical you can mount a turbocharger so far away from the engine and
    then get 5psi at the throttle body. BUT 4 Guys Garage is doing a show on it
    Dec 30th (for the LS1 chevys, anyway)

    If it works, it's VERY cool. Longevity etc I wonder about. I would hate to
    drop 4 grand worth of parts on the highway. And the air intake being behind
    the rear wheels doesn't thrill me at all. Water infiltration seems like a
    huge issue. Less on a truck though. The real beauty of this though (IF it
    works well) is not having to find space in an already cramped engine

    There is a turbo for a Pacifica. It a has the same engine at the 300m.
    So search for a turbo charger for a 300m and you will find it. It is a
    3.5L engine that is no different the the regular 3.5L engine.
