Rear Mount Turbo: 2003 Chevrolet Blazer S10

The concept behind a rear-mount turbo seems silly at first look. The basic idea is that you mount the turbocharger where one of the mufflers should be — you use the stock exhaust system and then push boosted air back up to the engine via another pipe. No intercooler needed (because the compressed air pipe is long enough to cool the charge air) and you get a stealth setup. Unfortunately you also lose efficiency because the exhaust gas cools before it hits the inlet of the turbo and you add a bucket of lag in inlet-and-outlet pipe air capacity. However, it seems to work okay if you start with a large displacement engine that didn’t really need a turbo to begin with and the boost is just a little bit-o-frosting on your performance cake. Find this 2003 Chevrolet Blazer S10 offered for $7000 in Conestoga, PA via craigslist. Tip from Cory.
