    so not only are you turboing a v6

    your mounting it at the most ineffecient spot possible. man the next thing you tell us you will be using a t3 turbo which is too small for a 4 cyl. wow. i cant believe anyone would waist there time with a rear mounted. just fyi we dynoed a firebird with the rear mount turbo kit. which is like 5999. and modded the car for boost it picked up about 30 hp to the wheels. deffinatly worth it. here is a good idea. 1st call turbonetics or innovative, or percision and get a real charger for a v6. proably arround a t66 or t70 with a t4 exh side. and then find a way to mount it in the engine compartment where the exh heat and pressure can help spool it and your setup would be realy good. just my 2 cents.

    I think remote mount is a waste of money. I've seen truckin do one on a silverado a while ago and they got like 30-40 rwhp on a dyno afterwords...

    I think they should come up with an electric turbo that can be mounted right on the end of the intake. Unless they already have one and Im just way behind.

    im not trying to look like a ass or be adick. im just wanting to share with you the info that ive found out. you would be better to get a charger with about a t 66 size with like a .81 ar or (about .68 for quicker spool and less top end power) exh to let it be street able and still make crazy power wheen needed. the t3 t4 60 trim map looks like it is only good for about 350 hp max and that is out of its efficancy window big time. and it really looks better at 300 hp which is right at the edge of its compressor map. then mount it in the back ant that is evan worse yet. the next best situation would be use two of them together. flip your shorty headers over and weld the t3 flanges to them and go with twins. with good internals and not peaked out you could get up to a easy 600 hp. and a mild tune of about 350. i hope it works out for you though.

    turbo is balanced, clipped, ported so should be a little bit better. but im looking around for a bigger exhaust housing.-

    but that is the next thing im doing. once i get a welder and some internals and valvetrain done twin t3/t4's are going in :D

    Very interesting set up. I have been following the STS turbos since they came out and it seams like a really good idea to me. If the turbo(s) are matched correctly to the exhaust and intake plumbing, you won't have hardly any lag, and should be able to make the kind of power that you are looking for easily. Keep up the good work, and you might talk to STS if you haven't already. they might be able to help you out.

    I am intersted to see how this works out for you because I was considering doing the same thing to my blazer. LS1...turbo V6, LS1...turbo V6. Decisions, decisions.
