Hey guys this summer I want to do something major to my six and I was thinking turbo. Alot of people told me prochargers and TMA. But what do you guys think of the STS turbos and how they mount near the exhaust, I haven't heard alot I just found it on the web and was thinking about it. Give me your opinions.

No personal experience, but from what I understood that they have crazy turbo lag...

Lag and all would it still be faster then a N/A V6? I realize off the line lag kicks you in the ass but I guess the main question is, does op just want to build something unique or is he wanting to be the fastest he could be?

Idk the point of this system, by the time the exhaust gets to the rear mounted turbo it won't be hot anymore, so your hotside isn't as hot, and by the time the cold side runs all the way back to the throttle body the exhaust pipes would heat up the cold side, which leads to very inefficient boost. Kinda seems like a pointless system just to say your different to me..

Ok, I see what you're talking about now.

I don't know much about a system like that but I guess the first things that come to mind are functionality questions.

Is your car a DD?
How would that kit hold up to inclement weather?
What kind of boost could you make with all that piping?
What kind of HP numbers could you expect from a kit like that?

That kit wouldn't be the best option for you. Being situated under the car you risk damaging it with road debris and in the winter time you'll be picking up road salt and its going to be more trouble then it's worth.

You're gonna have to do a more traditional turbo set up or supercharger.

What kind of turbo is reasonably priced that would push me to 300. Without new internals. I plan on getting a new throttle body, manifold, and injectors.

Look for a good used turbo kit, there is usually one floating around, check V6P.net I saw a very nice complete kit for sale there not to long ago may still be there

And you can save some money, don't buy a TB lol it's pointless

If you have a little more money to spend TMA turbo makes great custom made systems for the V6 mustang. Just search TMA Turbo.
