That seems a bit strange.

I had an accident once in an old hotrod truck I built. Nothing fancy on the insurance. I had full coverage with a $100 deductible. Had a blown 383 stroker under the hood. Got sideways and hit a wall with the front corner smashing the hood and fender. Claimed it on my insurance. Gave them pictures of everything that even showed the motor with the blower. Had the adjuster come out and look at it as I wanted to do the repairs myself. He saw the motor and we even talked about it. They paid off with no problems or questions asked.

Not sure how they could claim that a turbo caused you to have an accident and not pay up. That is unless they may be some fly by night schister company. Not saying they are but I don't see how they could get away with it.

My Rides:

'12 Hyundai Genesis 5.0 R Spec Titanium Gray 5.0L 429 HP. Lovin it.

'08 Magnetic Gray Metallic Sedan. V6, Sunroof, Comfort and Sound package. Debadged, GT Rear Tail Lights, Tinted windows, 35% rear, 50% front. Royal Purple oil and K&N oil filter. (GONE Lemon Law)

'06 Harley Roadglide.
95" kit w/ custom heads and 50 mm TB. 101 HP/ 104 TQ.Lot's of custom body work as well. And it's Built by ME.

I need help, I'm trying to supercharge my v6 but I'm on a budget.

Supercharging anything on a budget is a great recipe for disaster since the statement is an oxymoron. Good luck

Hello everyone! I'm new to this page and I myself own a pontiac G8 V6. I was reading your thread and as far as building a more durable transmission, there is a 5L40E performance transmission set you can buy from level 10. It cost $5K that comes with a new transmission that can handle 700hp upward to 1000hp, wires and torque converter. Pricy? Yes, but instead of buy a new one or rebuilding I think it might be worth the money and I do believe it comes with a warranty. Just something worth looking at if you really want to push it to the limit. With all the mods I have in mind including engine mods I found that will beef up the engine, you could get 600hp-800hp depending on what route you go as far as force induction. They've shown it can run 444hp naturally aspirated but that's not with all the mods however.
