    Default remote mounted turbos

    after extensive searches on various forced induction web sites, i came acrossed a interesting thing, what do you think about remote mounted turbos? i think the with my m30, and some welding knowlage, i could run maybe some used supra turbos off ebay, say right off the down pipes, before the cat, because the m30 runs twin manifolds, and twin pipes all the way back. the way that i see it, maybe off of the manifolds you make an adapter that mounts with the 3 manifold studs, and then tube for about 4 inches, and on the end of that, weld a turbo flange onto it. one for each manifold, send both your exhaust back to stock with some welding skill, and converge both boost tubes, send boost piping around front left, to a medium size intercooler, and back you intake, i think youd get more room to work, and it would be easier and cheaper.

    No problem. Put the foot down, have a cuppa, admire the view, listen to the Eagles Greatest Hits and by then you should begin to sense the acceleration!

    mabye delete the intercooler, it would get alot of air down there anyways, and it shouldent be terrible with 2 small turbos

    Even so, with the length of tubing, I think the lag would most likely be unaccepatable.

    You could make up for that by splicing in another turbocharger every six inches.

    You could use a small turbocharger to minimize lag, and still get a nice improvement. Or you could use a BIG turbocharger to make the wait worthwhile

    Either way, I'd love to see you try!
