What kind of power figures should one estimate for that beast? Actually an old friend of mine had one, and it was surprisingly punchy.
I had bought the original McLaren 3.1-T setup for the car right before I sold it. NA running mid 15's it had less than 155hp at the crank but tq was about 210 according to the dyno's I have seen. Stock 3.1's showed 180+lbs of tq at the wheels. My car weighted in at 2580lbs at the track, so keep that in mind....you don't need much power when the car is lightWhat kind of power figures should one estimate for that beast?

Yeah, it's been done a few times. It's a lot more work than the 3.4/3.5/3.9 swap since the 3800 is a 90 degree motor. There was even a twin engined 3800 SC front and back one done. There is a nice series 3 turbo 3800 out there.Would the 3.8/L36 or 3.8sc/L67 fit in one of those?
Typically they are installed far outside of the engine bay, often times out the back of the car where the muffler would be.excuse my ignorance, but what is a remote turbo setup?
