A remotely mounted turbo is the same as any other turbo setup, except you use your conventional NA manifold. The turbo is located after the collector, sometimes at the rear of the vehicle, but usually in the downpipe or just behind the motor. Turbo's mounted near the rear of the vehicle can get away without running an intercooler.

Extra intake plumbing, but otherwise an identical setup.

Wrong.... ALL FI should run an intercooler AND the turbo is located after the MOTOR not after the exhaust manifold.... there are a few feet of difference.

Also you will get lag with a remotely mounted setup on a 4 cylinder.... V8's have less to the increased amount of gas flow.

He was asking about a remotely mounted turbo, not how people conventionally mount turbo's. That is what a remotely mounted turbo is, one that is mounted AFTER the exhaust manifold.

ANY turbo is going to be after the motor.

Intercooler's are not required for basic forced induction on most vehicles. Old turbo dodges never had them, many modern trucks dont have them, starter turbo kits for many NA vehicles out there don't have them, and most of the big boy turbo drag cars (less than 8 seconds) don't have intercoolers. What would make you think the intercooler has anything to do with getting the air into the motor? We use them on street vehicles with more than a few pounds of boost to help prevent knock on lower grades of fuel.

Remotely mounted turbo's near the rear of the vehicle can get away with not having intercoolers because of the grand distance the air charge must travel to reach the motor. Time is a vital variable in heat transfer.

Wow...

And yes, you will get much more lag, and there really is no benefit on most 4cylinder cars to run a remotely mounted turbo.

Correct, you weren't wrong at all with this. And the exposed heat exchanger surface area is the most vital variable here, and in this case is the tubing itself. Dont forget EGT's are much lower with a setup like this too.

Xios makes a kit that is kinda what you are looking for. The turbo is on the backside of the motor and the kit uses whatever header you have on the car.

I wonder if the people poo-pooing these systems have ever DRIVEN one? Any REAL insight, or just armchair quarterbacking? I'd pay a premium to keep my car smog legal, not to mention being able to revert back to stock in a short amount of time. It's like you guys think emissions regulations are magically going to become lax....NEWSFLASH! It will only get worse. (Cobalt SS) IIRC a remount mount turbo HHR won a tuner contest sponsored by GM and SEMA a couple of years ago. The first focus tuner to design a system like this gets my $$$. Anybody listening?

STS had a sick GTO with a rear mounted turbo, but I haven't looked in to this for my car. I REALLY want a turbo though!
