Sorry for the hijack.

That isn't the turbo that bolts up to the back part of the exhaust is it?
Don't want the supercharger?

Yes it is

Had one setup with a NOS fogger but sold it when times got tight in college I put my stock intake back on (the truck is better on tires that way)

I thought that the turbo would seem extremely vulnerable down there. They had a write-up about it in some mag I read a couple years ago. They liked it.

Being a former WRX owner, turbos are fun to play with!!
