Ooooo, I was alright with the turbo in the back thing, but behind the cats? That seems a doomed effort to say the least. Yes, they are mean about letting you move them around (and why we need so many is beyond me!), but you lose all sorts of energy in there, don't you?

The final one will mount above the current exhaust manifold and will relocate the battery box. At Least, that was the last I heard...

And the first five people to buy a kit get a free NC to put it on?

I say the proof is in the pudding.
BEGI's results will tell us the real world pros and cons of rear mounting. (I'm interested in how big the cons really are).

Does it in the rear, now he wants to know how big the cons really are? I know a couple ex-cons I could set you up with. :-P
