One better - one of these driving off of the passenger side cam housing:

Will use a rear fender well mounted radiator or heat exchanger.

Full ECU boost control is planned. Potential for boost taper is fine - worth the risk given the low price of the turbo. I can always upgrade the housing, compressor wheel or the entire turbo later with an Evo IX or Evo X turbo and still have it bolt up.
