wow that is a strange looking system..talk about turbo lag, those things pretty much make up the damn exhaust, i bet that thing sounds awesome from the rear, but still, why so far back???

and all i can say is wow on that c6 kit

Well based on principle, hot exhaust gases is wat a turbo needs to make power, listening to the cars n reading there reviews...lag is very minimal jus like a engine mounted turbo...i guess it's in the design of the turbo itself...

Why so far back? It's because there is such limited space in the engine bay of F-bodies and newer V8 cars in general.

I dont think so...it's jus their principle...it has it's advantages, simple to install, no changing of manifolds n other things associated with installing a turbo, less heat, lag like i said before is minimal due to the design of the turbine n piping used...even the dilter is located out back...ambient air, thats where it's located...i wonder wat Tom thinks!?

I've been on there site for over a year. No big lag problems. If you ever look a a mustang at the races you will see a turbo under the hood & the ice box in the back seat or trunk to cool the air. This is just less pluming, thus less lag & less heat ( cooler out from under the hood & has a better air flow over the turbos. I'm putting a twin set up on my 88 Mustang coupe.

I was at a dyno day today in southwest FL and among a lot of really sick cars there was a WS6 TA with this kit. He was throwing down 500hp and 530ish tq
