turbo v-6 mustang?

i saw a guy driving a new body style mustang tonite. he had what appeared to be the hood from a mach 1 mustang on it. it had a single exaust with a really funny lookin pipe right before the muffler, definitley not stock, but not loud at all, and on his trunk he had a turbo badge, written in cursive like one from a mitsu eclipse. i could hear a very faint turbo, hardly there. i didnt race him because we didnt get a light together but he was following me and was able to pull on me a little. i am pretty sure they arent production, weird

There was an episode on Horsepower a few months back where they put a turbo further back in the exhaust. I didn't get to see the whole episode but it was interesting. They said that you lose a little bit of power from the turbo ut it wasn't much.

It's called rear mount turbo. It's a way to "hide" the turbo from direct view of a racer when poppin the hood. My buddy is putting dual rear mount on a 91 LX he is building up. I'm not sure how it would be worth the time and work on a 6er, I'm not a fan myself. I've always believed you have to start with something decent before you just go and blow money on it. Rear mount is nice, same effect, a bit more piping involved to running the turbo, but it replaces the muffler as a mechanical muffler.
This is a company that I know makes them. Not saying this was his kit, but here's an idea and more info.

i actaully just talked to my buddy about putting a supercharger on an 07 V-6. i dont know if i would put a remote mount turbo on a v-6 tho... seems like it would be sooo much more expensive.

To my knowledge, a turbo is almost always more money than a supercharger. Difference can be from 500-2000 dollars. Just a quick glance online brought me these two numbers:
05-07 V6 Procharger P-1SC kit- $4280 from RPM Outlet
05-07 GT Turbo kit- 4995 from Turbo-Kits.com


So even though not a direct comparison, there are the slight price differences. I'd say, supercharge the V6. It's less work on your part if your building it yourself and the power numbers will be about equal over all. As you know with your PSD, turbos are sweet sounding and have power over a large curve, but the newest superchargers heard that advantage and are designed to do the same. So it's anyone choice now. Getting into high HP big torque mustangs, all turbo hands down, if not twin. Street cars... it's up to the owner IMO.

I hope my ramblings are of some help.

I don't know for sure but in the old days, diesels were supercharged, but from I understand they are illegal now, but thats just what I heard. The STS turbo is awesome, but not in the basic package. I've read and seen that you need to put down some serious cash to make that thing fly. The reason being the turbo lag because of the location of the turbo and the fact that the basic package only puts out 5 pounds of boost!!!! 2gs is a lot of money for 5 PSI

Screw that. I've seen the remote turbo's before. Why hide it. I wan't it to stick out so everyone can see it!! I know they free up room under the hood but that's the challenge. Making it all fit and look good!
