I'm interested to see how they plumb the intake pipes...there doesn't seem to be a lot of room under there....

Make sure you get track times. Some of the early kits made more power but went slower at the track due to narrow power bands.

there are videos on youtube of STS turbo installations. If you watch one I doubt there will be much confusion.

Why aren't the turbos in the engine bay? It loos like they're by the diff. This is going to have mad lag because it's going to have to pressurize a longer tube, plus the exhaust gasses have more force when being push out of the block. Efficiency is lost by having them at the exhaust tips...

Turbos belong on V6 and smaller. Sorry.

So it pulls air through faster rather than pushing?
