I've been thinking alot about the remote turbo setup I saw on Trucks on SpikeTV. http://www.ststurbo.com/products
I wouldn't need to change my exhaust manifolds (A new set of Kooks 3/4) and I wouldn't need to cut up my K-member or buy a tubular one.

Im sure there is a cheaper way to piece together a setup individually but, as far as univeral kits go this is the best way I know of.

The only things I don't like about the remote turbo setup are the amount of extra plumbing need to return charged air to the front of the car and the turbo being exposed to road conditions more than an under hood setup. I've heard a hot turbo could crack if it gets splashed by a sizeable puddle or a small snowdrift. With a turbo jacket the risk should be minimal but I don't know of anyone who has tried this on an MN-12.

This is my favorite turbo option but if somebody has a better way, I have a new best friend.

Bill Wheeler (owner of this club aka Sir William) has an STS prototype rear mount turbo on his T-bird.
