Over the Thanksgiving holiday, my youngest daughters 2014 Focus developed a transmission problem. Rather than fix it and give it back to her, I opted to give her my 2018 Passat turbo. We found for me, 1968 Camaro convertible with a blown engine, which hubby promptly bought for me.

It's on it's way here as I type this, hubby is going to have a custom leather interior installed for me. A local speed shop is going to install a 6.2L, 376 cubic inch engine with 425 horsepower and 430 of pd/ft of torque. I've opted for the 6 speed manual transmission over the eight speed automatic.

They will have to upgrade the suspension and brake system to accommodate this xxxxxxxxx. My question is this, the LS3 engine is a popular crate engine, does anyone know if it would be worth adding a 2 litre turbo charger? I would love another 50-60 horsepower, but I want to retain the actual hood. Any experience with this?

Haha! Wow, that's great Dana! Maybe start with the 425 horsepower and 430 of pd/ft of torque pushing from the rear end. It's a different xxxxxx than the Passat turbo for sure! : ) Enjoy!

We actually bought it cheap, it's painted Riverside Red, the interior will be black leather with red inserts and stitching. It should be ready sometime in March!

Hi there
Wow that is a great muscle car and a great crate engine to install in that car.This is coming from a true blue Ford die hard.Save yourself the money no need to install supercharger/turbocharger as some simple bolt ons will get you to your goal of 50-60 HP.Bolt ons such as cold air intake larger throttle body custom tune to the ECM and free flowing exhaust.That is one sweeet car you will have there enjoy!
