    Was wondering if this was feasible, losing the back box in place of a turbo, would there be room to run a boost pipe back to the tb?
    Also what boost would be safe without lowering compression?

    You want to mount a turbo.....at the back of the car ?

    It would need so much piping, it probably wouldnt be worth it. The more pipe, the more volume a turbo has to pressurise. It would lead to lag / response issues.

    Not even sure it could work off exhaust pressure at the end of the system? Then you need to pipe it to an intercooler, then back to the inlet.

    Why remote mount it when it can be mounted in the engine bay?

    That Lexus is very practical. With airfilters under the car. Engines like water in the inlet right ? :p But it clearly can be done. So must be something to stop this.

    The reason to remote and not just locate in the bay, well a few reasons, not having to change manifolds, not sticking a hot turbo in an already compact bay, this should be a lot cheaper to do is the main reason.
    I looked into this with my last v6 car but killed it before it went anywhere, I know the principle works, just unsure of space for running pipes etc

    I've seen this done before too. Theres a company called currency motors who run a rear mounted twin turbo kit for the E60 m5 which pushes 800hp. Anyhow, i could go into detail about y i think its a bad idea but the best thing i can say to u is to research into it properly and u'll soon realise that an engine bay turbo kit is the best way forward. Check out a company called vr6 specialists in holland, they do a turbo kit for the 3.2 vr6 engines in the audi and vw.
