Yes, there was only a kit for the 4th gen Cam/Firebird V8s but you could easily modify them for 4th gen V6. The underbody of the 6th gen is light years ahead of the 4th gen. Nothing would be compatible with the exception of the oil pump and maybe the turbo. You would have to still cut and modify the charge pipes. Original STS kits were problematic and overpriced (around $4500-non intercooled)They never took advantage of some of the procedures you have to do to make them reliable and more efficient which is the reason why they went out of business... A custom kit like mine costs less than $1.5K using better parts than STS would use. You should not spend more than $1500 to $2000 in all reality if you build it yourself.

Charge piping has been completed! These pics were taken before I put the clamps on all the connectors. The pipes run along the passenger side of the care and then over the aluminum K member directly into the A2W intercooler.
