twin turbo V6 Exige, in theory, how much horse power?

Recommended Posts

If the Toyota V6 in the Exige had the Supercharger removed and a twin turbo system installed in it's place.

And I would assume the twin turbo would make more horse power then the supercharger does.

What kind of horse power could the a turbo Toyota V6 engine make (in theory)?

Wrong question. The questions to ask are:

  • If the gearbox blows up it I get more than 500hp why should I try?
  • If the pistons burn through at 500hp, why should I turbo the engine?
  • If I turbo the Exige, where can I put the turbos?
  • If the turbo kicks in mid corner how do I avoid spinning out?

If you're embarking on a project of this scale you should just change to the sequential gearbox

Same as above, change the pistons/con rods/whatever other internals

There would be some space released by the supercharger

Long gone are the days of "kicking" turbos - it is not a problem at all to have a smooth and manageable power delivery

It's been done many times in Toyotas and Lexuses. In theory without being to aggressive 600-700hp should not be a problem at all from 3.5L engine. It would need to be cooled efficiently and it would be a big project (think dozens of kUSD).
