You need to go out to the track and watch some of the 1900 hp outlaw doors cars with 1-2 & 3 turbos on big block motors. You would change your mind then.

Well I get how a turbo works. I'm just wondering if this setup functions differently because it's rear mounted. Are the benefits weight and cooling and tubes are just run from the back to the front or does it use one of those counter intuitive physics quirks to somehow work by just bolting on to the exhaust?

That's one heck of an idea...don't have to worry about finding more room in an already tight engine bay.

In a nutshell, rear-mount turbocharging isolates underhood components from the wire-frying heat typically given off by a turbocharger's turbine housing. In addition, the rear-mounting methodology means the turbos themselves run cooler, and the install is simpler and cleaner. Also, no piping downstream of the turbo means no backpressure whatsoever, thereby improving turbocharger performance

(That is from this article about a Z06 with rear mounted twin turbos)

I was going to go in depth... but Junkie got a pretty good hit on it.

A buddy of mine had one on his 99 SS.It was featured on hot rod TV about 7 years ago.They did the install on TV and it didn't cost him a dime.Very lucky guy.One day he was driving the car in a bad rain storm and he road over a deep puddle.He ended up hydro-locking his motor.Very unlucky guy.I never liked how the intake was low and in back.You got to be really careful about getting water in the intake.

it would have had to have been one hell of a puddle. the STS kits for 4th gen camaros came with splash shields and the intake sat over 1ft off the ground tucked up behind the bumper.
