Turbo a 3.6R?
 
Just wondering if anyone has installed a turbo on a 3.6R 5th generation Legacy?

I'd be careful. The geometry of the rods make them not too capable of high boost.

Aussies (Rapter) have heads and a low boost super charger for the 3.0R. Link is for one with an IC; there is another one without the IC.

If you search for Raptor threads, there is more info.

There is a thread for 3.6R headers. I think the OP is contacting Raptor to see about an ECU tune. The headers differ between the 3.0R and 3.6R.

On a good note, the 3.6R intake/exhaust valves are bigger; the heads flow coolant to the cylinder block/head independently vice the from one end to the other on the 3.0R; bigger injectors and bigger alternator.

This is great info, keep it coming!

what's the worst that could happen? (here we go lol)

Perhaps contact Raptor and discuss the piston geometry with them?

It's the rods. The 3.6R uses bent (C shaped) rods.

How dare you insult the premise of the forum...aka legacy"gt".com, Not legacy3.6gt.com
Nah just givin ya a hard time, I supercharging.would be one thing since I've seen that done on the H6 engine, but to turbo you're whip I wouldnt have a clue. However I won't stop you from trying :)

I just lol'd so hard.

If anyone is serious about modifying a 3.6r that extensively I would say a blower is going to be far easier and more reliable. Is there a way to tune them?

* bump

So has anyone emailed Raptor about using their Supercharger in a 3.6R? There site does states "Suits Legacy,Tribeca and Liberty (3.0 and 3.6) - Globally"

JT_36R 01-22-2013 03:44 PM

Hi guys,

Just emailed Raptor Superchargers and here is the response I got:

"It is very true that not one person has yet supercharged their EZ36D

Raptor knows with certainty that the current EZ30D kit will bolt directly to
the 36 - however we ourselves don’t have an EZ36 on our test R&D fleet, so
until a customer comes forward demanding a system be installed and tuned on
the 36 we cant offer further information"

More trouble than its worth due to the conrods IMO, better off with an STI engine swap or something...
