Unless you are going to build a race car with a forged stroker with a high stalled auto.

Even if you want to build a race car, front mounts offer much better boost delivery and performance.
Rear mounts were designed for space issues. The Camaro/G8 have a TON of space.

Yes, I've driven multiple STS cars build by the best.
Their boost delivery is HORRIBLE and do not make full boost to the higher gears.
Remember, the Camaro weighs 700lbs more than a Vette and needs all the boost EARLY.
Stay Away.
