I still can't imagine why a rear-mounted turbo would fit well with a J-body Cavalier or an N-body Grand Am? At least an F-body Camaro or Firebird has some torque to get it in motion.

There's got to be some hellacious lag involved with those rigs...
Even though I have all the facts and am right Yes lets move forward

I agree I asked the owner of the one ive seen in person, WS6 Firebird, how well it performs. He ran his at 7 PSI picked up around 50hp at the rear wheels never has had a problem.

I would think on our EJ251/2/3/4, 7 PSI will do more then enough.

Short of a clue, it is! Confirmation appreciated.

...at what RPM, though? If spool and lag take a lifetime, you're going to need some close gears and dedication to higher engine speeds. A remote turbo has to be awful for autocross. I'm open to being convinced otherwise; got any before and after dynos to show?

What was the WS6 running for compression ratio?
