As this is more of a street car, I understand why kb is saying what it's saying. BUT, there are some cars running front facing turbo kits on multiple platforms, doing daily driving. There is room (with moving stuff around, though), it's hard to do, and 10x harder on a street car. Kb is a company, and selling one off kits, when people have such different setups, makes zero sense, so again, I understand. My comment was based on the fact that so much work was done already. This mounting for subies is still in it's infancy.(not for fobia though, he was ahead of the game with that fog light kit)

+1 for kb for making this kit, it's undoubtedly better than a rotated mount and the oem low mount. Look's beefy, too.
The nice part is we would not be including inlet hose or filter, so you could run whatever you wanted.

This kit is designed to work with Garrett Turbos using a Tial v-band 30/35 Turbine housing, with our modified compressor housing. No other turbine housings will work.
