On some cars that don't have alot of space in the engine bay, they'll actually mount the turbos under it. The turbos are usually near the back of the car, further down the exhaust stream. I've mainly seen them on Camaros and Firebirds, and only once on a truck. Can't remember the truck though.

I think I know that truck... (the clincher might be the Green Bay Packers sticker on the back window) I looked at it cosely and we talked about the truck for some time. The owner used to be a salesman for Haas Machine-tools. He could turn it off or on at will. He used a Cadillac dash to keep the factory look, yet get one other gauge. It was a sweet ride! There are several other advantages to it too. I may be able to get in contact with him again and find out more if there's interest!

Just search for Parish and Chevy on Youtube and you'll see a nice turbo setup.

Remote systems are junk IMO. The turbos being set so far away from the engine increases lag due to the long distance between engine and turbos, AND increased boost response time because of the same reason. One of the main keys in turbo performance is to efficiently boost the engine with the least amount of lag and/or increased response of boost. The best system would be to have the turbo in the engine bay and IMO, preferably a twin set-up.

Shhhh! Don't ever say bad things about the turbo-dingleberries. STS has a Brazillion Net-zombies that will do bad things to you. Then you will hear about all the wonderful things remote mount turbos do. They even cure global warming.

FWIW, do search on Google. They are best known for engine grenades.

im working on putting a turbo maybe a twin turbo setup in my 2004 nissan titan king cab. just wondering if anyone else would be interested in doing either. the main difference is the twin turbo setup would need the battery relocated for my apllication and how i wanted to do it.
