    most people dont do front mounts like visible from the engine bay on lsx cars just because there isnt much room to work with. There are a lot of "k member mounted" turbo set ups where they are located just by the k member but imo the easiest way would be a rear mount.. If you did a front mount visible when you pop the hood youd have to do a lot of relocating.

    Started pulling stuff off of my 98, for my front mount build. I have most everything I need, but something I don't have will be needed.

    Kudos on the intercooler, have only seen side mounts so far. Piping placement difficult?
