I'm looking for a thread that has talked about this thing previously but when I search for "STS turbo," well, you know...

I remember someone saying there's a slight problem with a rear turbo, but I don't remember the details.

I've been looking at the STS turbo for a while, just waiting for someone else to give it a shot first :-)

Yea I saw this on Trucks as well. Seems like alot of work to install but may be well worth the trouble.

The only good reason to use a remote mounted turbo is the underhood room of the car, or rather the lack thereof. If you have room for a regular setup by all means go with that.

May want to have the wastegate open after more boost so that you get more pressure since it has to travel so far.

I think that's one of the major appeals of this thing
