The issue I have seen with rear mounting, is getting the charge pipe, or in your case, charge pipes up to the front without either going on the outside of the frame rail or in the way of the front tires. Nothing wrong with it on the outside of the frame rail, its just personal preference. Those turbos look nice.

Iím hoping I will have enough room on the passenger side to run it that way inside the frame rail. I wonder if there would be any negative effect on combining the charge pipes at the rear instead of running 2 charge pipes and combining at the intake?

Got the short block assembled yesterday. Went with king racing main and rod bearings. Also started cleaning on the chassis some. Waiting on cam, oil pump, and lifters now. Anyone have any suggestions on drilling the stock gas tank for feed lines or going fuel cell?
