    3GP Rear mount turbo

    Not pretty. But seems to be effective.

    I was considering doing that. But i couldent see it being worth it in intercooler pipeing and exaust pipe alone.

    On the up side you wouldn't need a manifold on the head.

    I imagine the setup would be laggy as hell, but if you could build enough boost then I suppose you could learn to drive it...

    I have heard that there is no noticeable difference in response between a normal setup and a rear setup. I have no experience with it but that is what I have heard
    If you don't turn around to look at your car as you are walking away, you have the wrong car

    The problem is that the exhaust gases cool by the time they reach the rear of the car. Cooler gas has less energy so less energy overall is delivered to the turbo.

    This setup can work on rear engined cars like Porches but I don't know why you'd do it on a car with a front mounted engine.
