project idea : remote turbo

well here is a idea ive been thinking about, a remote turbo. here is a picture. im looking to build a simple turbo system. remote will have little heat a big problem normally. the air is taken from the rear of the car less heat there . some guru's even say a intercooler is not beneficial in this application. the neg there is less exhaust velocity so it has longer spool times and boost is somewhat limited. but if space is a big issue this is a awesome idea. simple setups based on rebuilt turbos can be made for less than a grand . for you sleepers feed your head

Apparently these work pretty well. Hotrod or Chevy Performance tested a kit like that a while back and it did really well. I would bet that you are going to want a smallish AR turbine to be able to get enough acceration through the turbine to spool the thing up. Since the EGT is down by the time it gets to the turbo so is the gas volume. Since this is the case the tighter AR will not be as restrictive as it would be at the engine.

Would this be a dry weather only set-up.? It looks like you may pick up water with the filter behind the rear tire.
I seen one of these about a year ago on a F-body, I have a pickup and have wondered if it would have any advantage being able to mount it closer to the front ( under the bed ). Dryer filter in wet weather, higher exhaust gas velocity, turbo closer to the intake.?

Remote mount Turbo

I was in a Conference with Gale Banks two weeks ago and he was really against this. If you got to worry about road debris, dirt, and water.

I notice the pic at the start of this thread is wrong wheel drive. If your into wrong wheel drives, ignore my post. To those patriotic among you into large displacement american autos, I say be proud of your turbos. Hang them high, through the hood, without a hood, or hanging out everywhere. If you need any turbo ideas, click on my avatar and check out my pics. Don't worry, the model T pickup is getting a pair too.

i have seen a kit like this in production actually on a fire bird or something along those lines anyways it was a big pontiac the turbo was mounted just in front of the rear axle and the intake still came from the hood it was designed to be a sleeper turbo nearly unnoticeable so aslogn as youre tubing is sealed no water problems

and as was stated earlier thats a long way from the header and alot of pushing as far as the turbo goes but apparently this is minimally affected

Im still skeptical

yes it absolutely works. over the summer i found someone who did it, and got to see how. people argue turbo lag. i would like to find a comparision using the same major components at a low boost, like 6 psi.

on a practicle , not racing only setup, this looks lke a viable way to add some boost to your daily driver.

if your that concerned about purity of the turbo buy the banks six gun. youll be 10k lighter thats fo sho

nice almost a year ago
