Go for it Kurt. I am going to be rebuilding my camaro with thicker head gaskets to drop compression down and then make a rear mount centered around a t76. I cannot wait to start that project.

Very interesting. Kudos for trying something different. I'm not sure how you could percieve any performance gains from it, but ease of installation and such may outweigh that for you. Let me know if you need any material or parts.

the STS works very well on V8 applications. hell it's less laggy than my supercharger in some respects.

man have I got the brain farts today, no way to mount a one way check valve on the pre side. so only one on the post turbo side, to prevent oil from backsliding.
You've already got the turbo at the back, why run the engine oil? You sated on Miata.net you were using an oil pump.
You could use a seconday oil supply in the trunk with an oil cooler under the trunk, and run the entire thing closed loop.

I do a remote mount for my xB kit.. It's more a mid mount than a rear mount..

This is the original prototype with the bogger mig welds, but you get the idea..

Not really required, you use the right pump it'll never be a problem. I suck the oil uphill from the turbo, and pump it right into the valve cover..

pretty interesting. could you do a wider angle picture to see the whole thing?

Also, you might want to address that over stretched rubber hanger. i'd hate to see it break,and the turbo drag the ground.

How will you control fuel? If your o2 sensors are before your turbo, is that going to make it hard to judge? Do you have to run a stand alone or is this the same as a standard turbo as far as engine control?

It seems like a cool project. I'm just trying to imagine how you control the electronics (obviously it can be done, I just don't understand it yet.) Good luck, should be really cool to see when it's done!

I just drew up a quick diagram, I see it now. The turbo isn't really doing anything to change the exhaust. The gas before it is the same as after, the turbo is just in the way. Just seemed really backward at first. Good luck on your car, I hope to see pictures of it on here someday soon!

Heres a remote turbo set up that looks pretty damn sweet. I thought wrapping your pipes was a no-no? A few places said it has 810 horsepower. Is the exhaust super loud like that?

Please don't go with the pepboys welder. Go to home depot and pick up a Lincoln unit, or better yet, pick up a Clarke 130EN kit. If you go with the Clarke unit it comes with a regulator and everything you need to mig other than the bottle of C25.

Weasel's right, Those low buck welders have an extremely low duty cycle. They will only weld very small areas at your settings, then power will fall off substantially due to overheating power coils. It causes poor penetration, bad looking welds, and potential failure points in the weld that you can't see. If you can't afford a good welder, you are far better off to have it done. You might want to see if a local welding school might be willing to help you out, they are notorious for haveing good quality equipment.

Very nice, both your setup and that Scion setup. I'll be doing something like this on my brother's saturn eventually. Keep it up!
