So you guys are not having any heat issue so far with the turbo being in the engine bay?

Can't wait to see more!

It is getting hot up there. We have all the wires and tubes close to the headers, downpipe, and turbo heat wrapped. Also there is a upgraded single high output Spal fan. A ram air hood would help a lot

Excellent, really nice. Perhaps you could use a hood like the one on J. Lennos car or T3. Sounds mean, straight pipes from the down pipe what is the down pipe? Is it off the Turbo? How do you feed the Turbo with oil where do you pick the oil up from?

Yhea, cars with turbo will change the exhaust note usually for the better. Take the 4 cylinder turbos for an example. You will never get that tin can sound with a 4 cylinder that has a turbo, but as soon as you take that turbo off it will be back to bee hive.

Holy crap....that sounds incredible. Million times better than those rear mount turbos we've seen.
