Lightbulb Turbo at rear of car?

I always thought the turbo[s] had to be right near the engine. There is a kit for the Corvette where the 2 turbos are mounted at the REAR of the car, cool.

i've seen that done on Trucks where they placed a turbo on a 1st gen SVT Lightning and i thought it was weird at first too. but i guess it makes sense on certain cars.

i believe they do this because of a lack of space underneath the hood of corvettes and gto's. I think its cool cuz you kinda don't need an inter cooler with all of that charge piping going to the front of the car.
