I want to turbo my 3.8 in the future i know the price of doing this. I am going to have to upgrade my pistons, rods and injectors. With those upgrades will my car be able to handle 600 whp?

What year 3.8? AT or manual? No injectors for BK2 3.8. Will want/need to do top end work. Recommend CF driveshaft. Will need a lot of suspension work and other upgrades to put it to the ground (assuming you actually hit the 600whp threshold).

My 2012 3.8 is turbocharged with a Precision 6266. I’ve also had the engine sleeved, new rods, pistons, crankshaft, pulleys, injectors, etc. I also have methanol injection, oil cooler, power steering cooler. As with any vehicle trying to obtain more horsepower, you have to consider upgrading your tires, brakes, exhaust, suspension. I currently run adjustable suspension arms, DBA pads and rotors, stage 4 clutch, carbon fiber driveshaft, and coil-overs. I track my car and race at different tracks so the suspension arms are definitely a must have for me. Any questions, let me know.

I have a question, how much did it cost to have all the prep work to the engine for the turbo cost you? (The sleeveing, crank install ext.)
