Well as far as that goes, you probably could run a small turbo up front and the bigger turbo in the rear. I think the question would be more on the lines if you could get everything to fit. Obliviously it wouldn't be a cheap setup but would be interesting to see.Remote turbo setups have a lot of lag. You want the piping to the turbo and from the turbo to be as short, direct, and straight as possible.
Not gonna be less expensive at same quality. You're adding an exhaust, way more charge piping, and shifting the complexity from the engine bay to pipe routing under the car...all while adding lag and moving the heat from an engine bay to right behind your fuel tank.I’m curious if by doing a turbo setup outside of the engine bay would if it will help with heat accumulation and the longevity of some of the external parts of the car as well as dealing with the tight and cramped space available. From the stuff I’ve read recently it would seem to be a less expensive option and has many benefits in the areas above. I’m not saying to cheap out and buy eBay crap to put it together. What if a quality build could be made for far less. Fact is we mainly are paying for precisely fabricated hot parts. Roughly 1500-2000 from what I’ve seen online for the good kits and 800-1200 for the crap 50/50 shots. Plus all the small odds and ends that have to put together to finish it. To get quality most people are spending 4-8k range? If you could do it for less and get the advantage of easy installation, less heat, and budget build without the sacrifice of reliability it would be a win.
