    in the next few months in going to boost my sol....im thinking of going with a rear mount turbo since i dont want to lose a/c. has any1 here tried that setup? they produce good hp on v8's. just wondering if any1s seen it done on 4 or done it themselves

    You can get turbo manifolds that will allow you to keep the A/C, if that's your only concern.

    I would suggest a regular turbo mani that would allow the use of a/c. since that is the way that is proven to work. There may be a reason you dont see them alot if ever in a honda.

    you usually hear about those from corvette guys and truck guys (i know there are 2 bed mounted s10s in dfw).

    on a honda, its not really worth it. you dont have the low end grunt to make up for the lack of a turbo.

    WAYYYYYY to much work for negative gain (longer spool time due to more piping that needs to be filled.)

    there's plenty of a/c and power steering compatible manifolds on the market.
