STS Rear mount turbo's...

Just out of curiousity has anyone done one of these on a focus yet??

is there really any benefit to having a rear mount turbo vs. front mount??

Yeah, I had a Lincoln LS that I custom made with a STS kit. Lot of work. LAG. But I had a 400 HP lincoln LS. :)

Dont really think it should be an option since you have other turbo kits you can throw on.

I've never understood why anybody does these set ups. It's pretty obvious they don't work as well.

Easier install and less intrusive on a lot of cars. You need very little hot piping (just what you need to exhaust)
I think the biggest drawback is pumping the oil back to the pan.

or the fact if you bottom out there goes your turbo, or the fact that you will have crap 60ft because of lag and the fact that the motor will have to push harder to get the exhaust fast that far away
