What do you mean by the exhaust? Like how do the turbid come into play?

The 6.5lbs/hp is the power to weight ratio. The lower the number, the faster you will go essentially. It's the reason why a Honda civic hatch with 300hp can beat a mustang with 400-500hp

Ah I see.
The way the headers go into the turbo then have another pipe going to the back

That pipe going to the back is where the exhaust goes when it exits the turbo.

I know that one
But why do the headers run to the turbo?

Because the exhaust gases are what drives the turbo.

Yes all turbos. That's why they are so efficient. They are using waist to generate energy.

Basically the pressure of the exhaust gas drives the impeller(?). Which makes pressure(boost) pushed back into the intake.

Gotta ask again all turbos? Weather its twin, single
Front or back facing headers?
And is it a necessity or is it a better way to set it up?

So that's the hot side? Header to turbo,
And cold side turbo to intake?

You run the other header to the turbo as well. That's where having a forward facing header helps.

Ah in a y. Yes?
So if going turbo would be wise to invest in forwards, of course personal preference but it seems you'll have less struggle with pipe fitment

Yes in a y. A forward facing header is easier to deal with and doesn't lose as much exhaust velocity. I don't know about your Cobra, but for my GT almost all of the turbo kits either come with forward facing headers or are designed for them.

If you decide to buy one of their kits, definitely do the forward facing headers and upgrade just about everything you clan on their kit. The basic turbo is junk.
