All of the cars are AWESOME....make mine look like a turd....The white 2013 is one of the sexiest looking Gens I have ever seen from the front. HOWEVER....for the full package...the 3.8 turbo steals my heart. I am forced induction to the core. Good job man, your car looks great and the under shot makes your rear tires look massive.

They hate cause they want it. They LOVE the front end because it looks like it wants a kiss :D
Lol, I will say the front end has grown on me a bit, past hating it, but not to the point of wanting it. I DO want some of the interior goodies, traction control, and semi forged internals of the 20T, but that's about it :)

Its a rear mount turbo...the exhaust is typical til ya get to the turbo really...headers into Y-pipe, into turbo. Charge pipe back to FMIC...the wastegate is Y-ed off to the outside tips and the exhaust to the inside tips

thanks , did little research my self and I still have couple questions for you sir. Why did you go with that rather then traditional turbo set up? Easier to go back to stock?? And if you dont mind , how did you end up financially with this set up? Was it less then normal front end turbo set up. Aren't you afraid to lose it somewhere on the pothole or curb? lol

Thats crazy, until you posted those pics I didn't even know they did this!
Did you notice much difference between having the tubro setup that way vs front end?

Main reasons for the remote set up was my shop wanted to do a rear mount and I didn't want to have to relocate engine bay components. Plus, I'm not one for traditional things.
I couldn't tell you how it compares to a typical turbo set up on a 3.8. I can't see there being much of a difference really. Other than a few extra feet of plumbing.
No, I'm not worried about potholes and definitely not worried about curbs lol In all seriousness, it doesn't hang much lower than my old stock muffler.

Who's they? Lol
I couldn't comment on the differences between a front and rear mount turbo 3.8. I've only driven this one

Sorry mira, it was a link posted to me. Was just trying to show reference, not the vendor.
