This is my current setup on my 2000 trans am, everything on it seems to fit the rules, except for my turbo location. Would this be acceptable? If not would I be able to just put blockers in so it wouldn't be considered ram air? I saw in the rules it says no ram air facing turbos. Just wondering for the future I plan to become a class filler. LOL

Not even if I block the holes? When I switch to the 76 or 80mm most likely I'll bring it back up top sidewayz!

Yeah, block the holes and it is good from what I have seen! There are a few cars in the same boat, the goal is to not have ram air to the inlet of the turbo.

Define ram air
This....


I've seen some guys with the turbo turned sideways in front of the engine, but had a sheet metal "ram air" an inch under the bumper probably 18" wide, then it funneled into a round inlet to the turbo...

If tech did their job, that entry would have been illegal until they removed the sheet metal "ram air".

Block it off and you are good to go.
