I also have to wonder about turbo oil pressure back that far. They may have eliminated most of the problem using ball bearing turbos, which need less oil than the standard type, but still a certain pressure must be maintained. Pressure would either drop over line length or a secondary electric oil pump was placed in between.I haven't read up on that system, but it seems they are simply trading one set of difficulties for another. I also see horrendous lag, though that may not be so noticeable on the high compression engines they use this on.
Also, back that far and under the vehicle, I have to wonder what they are using for splash guards. Rain water hitting the turbine side housing in excessive amounts would cause catastrophic failure due to thermal stress fracturing.....

It has its own oil sump and pump, it doesnt take off the engines oil.
:thumbup: I'd be concerned with oil cooling though too, assuming everything is contained in the rear of the vehicle. I haven't done much more than glance at that website..... schoolwork........... :rolleyes:
