Well sorta, it's rear mount turbo mounted where the spare tire well used to be. Headers merge to an x-pipe then to a single 3" ovalized pipe into the turbo. X-pipe is really a waste as it goes to a single pipe but it came with the headers and helps with the plumbing to the turbo.

Looks stunning man. Please keep the pics coming, especially of that rear mount turbo...

ahhh, i've got one blue ball ...I was half expecting to see more pics of the LS1 E21 (altho I hesitated thinking that since you've had that motor snugged in for a while now). But that M20 & those headers do look pretty nice!


How come you're going with a rear mounted turbo? There are a few places online that sell turbo manifolds for the m20...mainly top tubular mount manifolds.

I really did a lot of research on front versus rear. Check this site out:

The uncluttered engine bay, low underhood temps,
and weight savings/distribution sold me. It'll probably suck but I hate following popular convention.
I needed a daily driver as my son destroyed all his and my cars so I had to put off finishing the e21. Should wrap the e30 up by April and the e21 should be done by June. REALLY looking forward to the e21 but a little scared at the same time. Kinda afraid I'll hurt myself.
