I saw the guy today at lunch...and I haven't got a camera yet, and I'll get pics soon as I can.

my bad its 93 T-bird LX with a v6, The mounting for the turbo is on the passenger side. The cone air fliter/intake in the stock location, feeding in to the snail horzontaly and continues up with a 90 degree elbow to the TB. No intercooler. There was no header mod; the SS pipes came from behind the motor (couldn't see to well). The snail was about 4" in Dia (I don't know anything about turbos so could tell the model/size) He had removed his heater/fan to make room, and even then you could see where the housing was rubbing against the fender wall. Hope this helps you turbo guyz out there.

I'm sorry I could get any details; I don't know much spanish.

hmm, I seem to be missing my Thunderbird . . .

Of course, I'd use that icon even if I didn't agree with Thomas
