Default Would be unstoppable?

Has anyone seen a turbocharged first gen 3.2 TL. I know it would be fast as hell, and now that I swapped out my tranny, Im looking to get a little boost.

The Gen 1 TL was powered by either a 2.5L in-line, or a 3.0L V6. The Gen 2 TL ('98 - '03) was powered by the 3.2L motor. There are no (simple bolt on) turbo kits for any of the models you mentioned. COMPTECH, (now CT-Engineering) still makes a supercharger kit for the Gen 2 CL/TL, and the Gen 3 TLs. The boost runs around 4 PSI, and provides up to 60 WHP gains (for the Gen 2 Type S & the Gen 3 base models). Also, the V6 motors, as good as they are, were not engineered to handle gobs of boost...rods are thin & piston rings are not setup for FI applications. The COMPTECH (CT- Engineering) solution would be your best bet. The product runs around $5K.
