STS makes a great product. Yes it is different because it is remote mounted, but different does not mean it is bad!!
Keep an open mind to STS, they make a great performing product, and I have driven, and played with, multiple corvettes and 4th Gens with the STS kit, and it was an absolute pleasure.
Some people love Turbos, and some do not, but for those who do....STS is a great product with exceptional results, in my humble opinon.
