yes it can be done but pretty pointless to be honest not worht the for the BHP gains you get. There was a Manta in TV which had a LET with TB's running a Getrag loutus Carlton G/box and was soooo powerfull it couldnt be accurately rolling roaded

why did they mount the engine the other way around?? surely it would have been more a git to mount up to g/box etc etc
and if it was to make room for the TBs, then surely it would have been easier to cut into the firewall etc (looks like they had to anyways)??

looks nice though

The engine is obviously mounted the other way around because it's RWD or 4WD!

aye, maybe its RWD, because i would have thought it would have been easier to use vaux's 4wd system that mating up another system (like a cossy's etc).

But its very nice eitherway

Dont think Pulsar GTI-Rs have throttle bodies and a turbo.

Engine is an SR20DET, same as what was in my old Nissan 200sx and I know that didnt have throttle bodies. Definitely only had one throttle body!
