The closer you are to the manifold (header or original cast) the better. The turbine section relies on heat just as much, if not more than exhaust pressure to spin the the turbine. I've seen some mounted way back under the rear end, only for spacing considerations. The best Turbo installations include a titanium blanket for the turbine housing and titanium wrap for the down pipe. This allows the heat to turn the turbine shaft faster, while keeping the heat out of the engine compartment. Moving the turbo out into the fender will do more harm than good, from a performance outlook.

No, I meant Titanium (as in blanket) woven material.

Right now, I think Stinger is the reasonable answer. Bo-Port also has a good one, but cost and waiting time are factors. Unfortunatly, 40BoB is out of business.

Cool info on the titanium wrap.

This might be an option but I only know about it from a previous post not sure of any results or experiences with it.
