    Check out the v6 development section.

    Im in two minds about trying it on my car, performance gains are there but there is a lot of talk about the ecotec not being able to handle it, the internals arent strong enough etc.

    Price wise i THINK (dont quote me on this) is 5-10 grand depending on setup etc obviously, but also think about any problems that can happen, probably not worth it when you are paying 50% of your cars value

    You would be better to buy an L67 (factory supercharged) engine out of a wreck.

    The internals are different between this and the ecotec.. plus the L67 can take a fair bit of work and give good power gains. Will happily run up to 10psi off the standard charger without affecting life of the engine.

    If you were to run a charger without upgrading anything you would be looking at a max of 3-4 psi without breaking anything, compared to the 6psi of the L67... then you still have a good upgrade path afterwards too.
