Turbo Suggestion/Question for the J30 with stock manifolds

I was looking at a different thread elsewhere on the forum and thought about this (I actually just copied and pasted my post there to this thread lol)... Could you imagine an STS Rear Mount Twin Turbo Kit for our cars? The turbos would give us that back pressure we need and the rear mounts would solve the Exhaust manifold problem

Kinda Like this



or this is a cobalt



300



or EVEN BETTER BWAHAHAHA:

i didnt either until i was looking through my old pix and found one of a STS TT LS1 Camaro which got me thinking about this. Any gurus feel like chiming in on whether this would be a good idea or not really work so well

I think it would be a good idea, although there comes into the ever apparent question of how to properly tune the car?

I've seen this rear mounted turbo set-ups before but the main issue on our cars I think is running the additional piping back to the front; room is definitely an issue there. Under the rear is plenty of room for a turbo but there is a downside where the turbo is exposed to the elements more. It should run a lot cooler out back though.

Someone with a lot of money and time will figure it out lol.

well STS has made a huge profit with these and also has been selling these for awhile so it must not be too bad of an idea with the potholes and everything. I know 100% what you mean about the pot holes on the east coast Theyre horrible

Maybe fabricate a turbo cosy to keep it nice and safe from weather and debris. I was looking underneath my trunk and there is a lot of room there.

I agree with otsb708, the real problem is TUNING the car. Thanks to Paul and LT we even have someone with a fully built J-series, I don't think the manifold and the turbo-setup are that big of a problem if someone's actually serious to boost their AV6.

Also, turbo underneath the car does not make a daily driver practical (rain, dirt, ...). If we're talking about daily drivers

not when there is constant pressure in the pipes. Also, its a lot of extra weight and also loose like a pound or 2 of boost but the air is much cooler so theres pros and cons to both

J30 turbo trial

We have begun looking at mounting a HY35 in a 1/2 bullet proof lexan box in the trunk. As for tuning we are going to try a mega squirt unit, let it logg the stock sensors and then set it up to feed data to the ECU. We are looking for 6 to 9 lbs of boost on this stock motor and if everything works as HOPED then we will install the built motor and tranny and go for some real numbers.

Me too! we were gona relocate the battery to the trunk and do a mount in that area but heat and I/C placement were an issue... with the design we have now heat is reduced by around 88% and instead of an I/C we are going to use a cryo kit on the intake which should put the air through the throttle body at around 55*F which even at only say 7lbs boost should drop 350+ hp to the wheels IF everythig goes as planned...... as of this post the turbo assembly is together, the 2 1/2 pipe from the cat back is installed, the lexan enclosure is is being fabbed up. once the enclosure is done I will begin the install and be updating with pics.
