Congrats on having a tranny that will never break with the power you can make with the 3800.
Thanks that was the plan! Im actually planning around 500whp and hopefully with the right turbo /turbos selection and tuning it should be doable. I just want it as streetable as possible at that level.Congrats on having a tranny that will never break with the power you can make with the 3800.
What trans are you running? Those are great #'s what turbo or twin set up would you recommend for best street strip performance?500 wheel will be easy and streetable. I have never broken a Tremec trans. My current turbo is making 808 rwhp and 918 rwtq. Takes every powershift that I throw at it.

I was considering the stock ecu but figured the MAS was a limit as opposed to tuning using VE table and MAP which I understand and can tune.I imagine a 67mm would get he job done.
Stock PCM is good for all the power you want to make. 1000 hp capable with great drivability and good fuel economy when your foot is out of the boost.
Thanks man! sorry to have beat you to it on this one but i have been building Conquests for about 10 years and just finished a complete restomod last year with a moddified 2.6L, it was making close to 400Whp and was a lot of fun to drive, But i had this gullwing conversion in the garage at the same time and really wanted to do this 3800 swap.i hate you for beating me to the punch, i mentioned doing a 3800 swap into an 89 conquest tsi last year and you popped in to say you were working on it already, they are such BAD A$$ cars, wide, light, and have awesome suspension and tires as wide as hell
how long did it take you to mod the trans?
this is going to be a build capable of anything, autoX drag drift you name it it's capable
I am pretty sure I have...the holden pan is extended out front. My current cross member/k member cuts the pan almost pefecty across the middle two cylinders. My steering runs to the back of the k member so it makes it more necessary to have my pan and pick up towards the front of the motor.For your pan, have you looked at the camaro pan/pickup yet? They bolt right on in place of the FWD pan/pickup.
Not sure if they are the same as the holden's, but definitely more clearance in the front than the stock FWD pans.
