The best place to install a turbo on a Z4 is either in the trunk or on the roof. Bring it to my public auto garage and we can do the job for only $10,000.

Holy crap, that looks like a real install on a Camaro or Firebird. That sucker must have some serious lag. WOW. 8O

I thought turbos were supposed to be mounted a bit closer to the actual engine than that.

Hobo, it is, i've been told that it's an "LT1 turbo kit"
don't know if it's true or not
EDIT: seems it is true 8O tryin to find the info right now

yes Bav, turbos are supposed to be mounted as close to the engine as possible, technically as close to the exhaust ports as possible, the farther away the more heat is lost, the more heat that is lost increases the lag of the turbo
also, the more heat that is lost, the less efficient the turbo is



figures that it's a bowtie-boy doin that type of install

As an engineer i can respect the inginuity of it however i can't understand why on earth you would put it way the heck back there i mean howmany different joints must there be for the boost to leak outta? I wonder if it really gives you 60% hp and tq gains like it claims that seems a little gratuitus.

As long as it's installed correctly I think it'll work. It'd just take some gettin used to.

Satty the engineer speaks. What part of it will "take some gettin used to".

I don't know. I had just woken up from a "nap" at school (Spanish Class) and decided to go on here for a little while. I don't remember this post at all. intresting.

29 minutes between posts...and both are "after" the nap?

Nice back-pedal.

Looks like a good engineer could design a douuble wall exhaust pipe to eliminate the heat loss?
