Would it be possible on a v6? I know theres not alot of room in the engine bay, but that would be a pretty cool setup if its possible

what exactly is remote turbos?
a remote turbo usually goes at the end of the exhaust system, sometimes replacing the muffler, unlike the traditional turbo that goes under the hood. very popular F/I setup with muscle cars (GTO's, Corvettes, etc.). these systems sometimes don't run intercoolers with low to moderate boost because the amount of piping used to build the kit actually acts as an intercooler. i believe someone touched on the subject in the custom Turbo build thread.

heres a site about Squire remote turbos in case your interested in this type of setup: http://www.ststurbo.com/

I went to the meet here in ohio yesterday, and i saw chads car with the turbo set up, and another guy, his name is slipping my mind right now, with a stage 2 supercharger. I know i want to eventually do F/I but i couldnt decide which i wanted to go with. but i think something unique and original would be the way to go, and thats how i came up with sequential turbos

depends on supporting mods, amount of boost, size of turbo, etc. lots of factors go into determining the power difference between 2 different setups.

There is no point on a Tib to do a single remote turbo, it will cost you more money because of all of the piping required, and as said above, more than likely you will get less boost=Less power.

That and the fact that there's not really enough room under the tib to place all that piping without it dragging constantly. Single turbo is the best way to go, considering there aren't really any Tiburon tuning specialists (TC asside), it would be a nightmare getting a sequential setup to work as well...

If you really want ease of installation and maintenance (and low relative cost), get the base sniper kit from NGM. Would be good for a daily driver. Turbo's have more maintenance with them and generally pull power in the upper RPMs. All depends on what you want.

turbos aint that bad its just watching temp ranges really and as far as pull power in the upper rpm its all based on the characteristics of the turbo

True, and I agree when done correct. However, a lot of people skimp on a few things which causes problems. Both have their pro's and con's.

It was once said that you can't TT a tib unless you're puerto rican...

you might want to read up and research a little more before you commit to anything, for starters you can check out a DIY by MotoX244, he did a hell of a job putting one together and it's as close to a DIY as you'll find really, and see how much work goes into it and then research and learn all these silly noob things so you don't waste your time. Anyone who's done it would say the same man.
