I'm going to be running forward facing headers on a SBC 2nd Gen Camaro and was wondering whats the best/easiest way to run the exhaust. I've seen pics of cars that point it down and go under the front crossmember and others that run the exhaust back over the header & down the firewall. What are your opinions on the best way to do this and/or is there a better way? Thanks

Valve cover height header facing forward.
Single turbo on the pass front facing forward.
Exhaust straight back to the firewall. Run the
pipe between the frame/starter/firewall, notch
firewall/pass footwell as needed.

Thanks guys, do I need to build a support for the turbo so it doesn't hang solely from the headers like the guy in that link did?? I thought I read somewhere that you shouldn't do that because it will actually make the headers crack??

Correct the turbo/s should NEVER hang on the pipes.

There is lot of info at The Turbo Forums . Com also and a GM section!
