Default Turbo or Supercharger kits for a 2010 V6 3.6 L

I've been looking everywhere, but I can't seem to find an entire kit, if they even exist. Installation of something like that is a bit over my head, but if its out there I'll just have a shop install it. Also a supercharger kit would be fine too, but again I would just have a shop install everything.
i'm kinda done messing with these new vehicles. It's a 2010 LTZ with the 3.6 V6 if that helps. Thanks for any input.

they are hard to find because they don't exist. Can it be done? yes. but there is a limited amount to be gained. the tranny is only rated for 300 HP. Not even to mention the thousands it would take to get it done..

but hey, i would love to see it done

What he said.
It is not cost effective even if you could get somebody to do it.
It might end up costing you a LOT more that the initial outlay in the long run.

If you really have a "need for speed", trade it in on something designed for that.

Serioiusly.

maybe we need a forced induction/got boost forum on here. every fifth post is where do i find a turbo or supercharger? not a lot of good information from veteran users either. suggesting that users buy a new car neither answers the question nor informs the rest of us. any car can be made to be quick. some of us enjoy a "sleeper."

adding forced induction to a car that was not designed for it is never cheap, but i don't believe he asked for a price quote. while the aftermarket may not support a premade turbo kit, piecing together your own "kit" will in all likelihood provide you with better parts and greater understanding. an ebay turbo kit is never the answer.

are you familiar with how turbocharging or supercharging works? what is the horsepower goal for the car? or is there a performance benchmark youre shooting for? 13s? i would suggest dyno runs before to get a baseline and after any changes are made to see gains.

Do you have any recommended parts suppliers, or conversely, ones you'd recommend staying away from?

Is a dyno a prerequisite or would a couple runs at the local strip suffice well enough?

With the 3.6 rated at 252 HP (not sure if it's BHP or crankshaft) approx. how much boost would it take to raise it to around 300-325?

Having just purchased my Malibu I unfortunately do not have any recommended suppliers at this point. I will be happy to share my experiences when they take place.

What are the desired goals?

Often times spending more time learning to become a better driver should be goal number one if you are looking for performance times. There are many professional associations you can join and performance driving classes you can attend. But if you really are John Force by all means move on to modding your car. In this case yes a couple of runs will suffice. A dyno number will not guarantee any quarter mile time.

Now if he had a specific horsepower goal in mind, he would certainly need to visit the dyno. I would suggest this before any mods to the car are done. If you don't have a baseline run, how do you know if you have really added/subtracted power? Tuning needs can also be addressed here.

That number is certainly crankshaft hp. Please do not be disappointed when you dyno your car if it reads much lower than that. Are you familiar with the difference between the two numbers?

A wide variety of factors would go into your approximate boost question. There are a thousand different turbos that would generate a thousand different answers, all at a thousand different elevations. Not all turbos are the same size. Not all turbos are designed the same. Your turbocharger is just one of many variables in this equation, too.
