Q: I was wondering if I could put a twin turbo.

asked by on

I wanted to know where to buy a twin turbo.

My car has 15000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Hi there, thanks for writing in. I don’t know of any twin turbo kits for your particular engine, but there are a few supercharger kits and single turbo kits already in production or very close to production ready. Many of these kits had to be re-engineered because Ford introduced a new 3.7 V6 for the 2015+ models. These kits are pretty expensive, starting at around $5000 and quickly going up from there based on your tune level and add ons. There are a few things to keep in mind though: Your warranty will immediately be voided, which is a huge negative on a car that is so new. Your automatic transmission was meant to handle 305 hp and 280 ft/lb that the motor put out stock, not the 450+ you will be putting out. If you put one of these kits on, you should upgrade the internals of the transmission and torque converter as well. You also have smaller brakes, softer suspension and narrower wheels designed for the lower performance V6 cars, as opposed the the brakes, suspension and wheels available on the V8 cars. If you really have your heart set on a twin turbo setup, you either need to wait as nobody currently makes one, or bring the car to a custom race shop that can make something custom for you. This would be by far the most expensive option, but your car would be one of a kind. Once you put all this extra power in your car, you will also have increased maintenance requirements, which you can have taken care of by the qualified professionals available from YourMechanic.
