    Stupid turbo question

    There has been alot of buz lately about the STS remote systems so I took a look back over on thier site. I still have my doubts with the system compared to a p1sc on my lt1 which is on my things to do list... but i was curious.... with a remote mount (or any turbo for that matter) do you have to ditch your exhust? i LOVE the sound and look of my borla running wide open... would there be any way to keep it with a rear mount turbo? or does it mount to far back to be hooked up?

    sorry man, with those sts systems your new turbo becomes your exhaust. With the Turbo back there is sounds sick!!!!! like a jet engine

    yea doesnt sound like a muscle car anymore, and looks rediculous on a trans with 1 lil pipe in the back where there used to be 4 :'(

    guess turbos out then. i'll take the minor loss for the sound and looks retention

    Is it minor? As I stated in a differant thread?

    Does anyone know? at 3,000 and 6,000 RPM:
    How much HP is wasted driving a SC and
    How much HP is lost due to back pressure on a turbo?
