Tracy and I had talked a bit about mounting the turbo under the hood. But with the amount of heat its producing and no ventilation on a stock hood, it would have been stupid.

That's why there are aftermarket hoods? Having turbos on the bottom of the car can be a terrible idea unless its strictly a track car. Snow, rock, water and debris can really mess up an under mount turbos.

I have a set of hex vents if you need some they work excellent to get the heat out also some aftermarket hoods will do the trick too.

No on the engine bay mount, but someone steps up we will do it as well.

The LFX single turbo were finishing now we are going to try and build a jig for the piping so we can offer it as a kit.


I'm in for that!

Think he's saying it would have been stupid to put a turbo in the engine bay without having some ventilation (no vents in the stock hood)...

srm is correct.....the amount of heat does no good for anything.....but we understand the looks for the WOW factor is more important to some than efficiency and performance, so we will do it if someone wants.

We understand HEAT can be an issue but what about water, rocks and other debris on a bottom mount turbo?

Good point, I never really thought of that. Maybe someone with them will chime in.

Water doesn't seem to be a problem (well, maybe for the STS turbos). Speed bumps are a different story. It is definitely a trade off.

Yeah,got that,I was saying I put in vents in anticipation of FI (heat).Not just looks,so if your considering spending $6k for underhood FI,why let another few hundred $ for hood vents stop you. Unless of course, your goal is to have a sleeper.
