To turbo a GTS you would most likely have to disable lift. Not to mention with the 11.5:1 compression ratio, you would have to get lower that... basically, making it a GT.

From my understanding, at least.

i agree whole heartedly. wouldnt be worth it. too much money involved, even for those who have a gts and want to turbo it. thats why if you have a gts just supercharge it. and use like 3-6 psi

i think u'd be able to add more boost with less engine work if you left it as a GT.
