Default Another take on an NC turbo - Front mount!

Had a tuning customer send me some pictures of this thing. Truly some impressive space utilization. Note the blow through MAF...

Different is good generally.

I don't see any kind of support. Is it just dangling there?

I think the bungee cord in the 4th pic is supporting it.

Glad to see more NC posts.

Pretty cool.
The guys bring up valid questions, however s2000's have been doing this type of setup for years and all put down humongous numbers with few issues. Same design is used by big turbo k20 cars as well.

lol bungee cord I can only imagine is to keep the water pipe out of the way during the fab; it runs right across the top there.

The front setup does allow you to run a big *** turbo. The lower mount like mine in the begi kits is great but once those compressor housings get bigger that 1mm of space to the motor mount is not enough.
