Anyone ever seen something like this? Why would you mount the turbo so far away from the engine, strikes me as being an undue amount of piping.

easier to mount to single exhaust pipe than to build a header, also space. you see these types of things on cheap ricer cars.

A buddy of mine has a turbo on his camaro. The turbo replaces the muffler, all the way in the rear of the car. I noticed no exessive lag.

It's called a rear mount turbo. Stupid on a bike.

Why's that?

Any advantages aside from it being easier to mount to exhaust manifold?

It looks like ass and strikes me as being something that would get nicely damaged by dirt or rocks.

They're advantagous on a car that pushes a far greater amount of exhaust through it. STS rearmount kits on camaros and Vette's typically dont have to be intercooled due to the long charge pipe length. There is also usually a greater pressure differentail with the turbo being at the end of the exhaust. The only real problems are the length of charge pipe, returning oil, and the lack of hot exhaust to spin it up, but they do make some serious power on the SBC cars.

I know the kit worked great on my buddies camaro, and even better with an aftermarket convertor. The turbo ate the stock one after about 6k miles.

Cooling! There is already enough heat contained in the fairings or a bike. I'd hate to accidentally touch it after a ride! The poor passenger is going to have one hot ass.

I went to the site. They list some wicked hp gains with pretty low boost.

There is nothing firm, nothing balanced, nothing durable in all the universe. Nothing remains in its original state, each day, each hour, each moment, there is change. Change is the essence of life. Embrace change as you do life. To fight change is to live in the past.

That's cause it's COLD. I think when HP tv did it, they were showing somethign like 100* air temp drops from the turbo to the manifold. It may not have been that much, but it was pretty significant. On a Vette where you've got very little room under the hood, it's an awesome thing, on a bike, just put the damn thing under the fairing like everyone else!

It actually sprays that cool oil slick kind of like the car did on that Spy Hunter game for regular Nintendo.



It is a trick to get the tailgating cars to spin out. It has been in use since the game was developed in 1983.

If it ever leaks oil the rider is screwed.

The idea is that they don't need an intercooler since all the piping has cold air going over it. Fine for low boost and small turbos, but all the big STS kits are intercooled. Most people buy the basic STS kits and find out they need an intercooler later. Rear mounts sound absolutely insane.

Yep, wicked sound. Great for a 1/4 mile toy.
