Where are You going to find room to mount that under the hood and how are you going to get turbo headers to come up around the heads. I would go with rear mounts less heat and more room to work. But good luck

I'm going with a mid mount using STS manifolds with the cats cut off. I'm not a fan of rear mounts.

Im seeing a big turbo, and a can of header paint? I cant wait to see what you come up with, especially if you ditch the supercharger.

Couple of questions:
1. Are you going to remove the Supercharger and make a whole new manifold or just make a block off plate?
2. Are you going to remove the stock Intercooler and go to an air to air or use both?
If you don't want to share that information that's fine.

I am going to use a standard STS intake manifold with an air to air intercooler. Probably the LNF upgrade that ZZP sells.
