Squires Turbo Systems on a Focus?

Just wondering if anyone has ever considered a Squires Turbo System for the focus? I know there are a few tested and proven systems that bolt right up and work, but i was curious only because it was different from what is typically being done.

I don't really think there's enough room/clearance under the focus to mount everything. I've thought about it though.

I thought about that too, but i saw how small of a turbo is used, and kinda figured the other pipes could be wrapped and run down the center tunnel. but hey like i said this was just a Thought, im waiting for a response from a few people and the company to see what has been done, or what can be done.

I run a remote HX35 on my 2.3l duratec. not a STS but fully homemade kit.
if you have question i can help, but I have to admit a remote system is a PITA when you consider all the vital composant of the oil system that can result to a complet failure of your turbo and car.

Xios made a kit that the turbo was mounted just behind the motor. I dont think it really caught on. Do a search for it Im sure youll find it.
