    Adding an IC to non-SVO?

    What is needed to add an SVO IC to a regular turbo GT?
    IC
    IC hoses
    IC brackets, maybe
    Turbo outlet pipe?
    ?

    How are you planning to get air circulation through the IC in the stock SVO location?
    The SVO has a “functional” hood scoop.
    Any reason why you would go the SVO route vs a front mount?
    Bad choices make great stories....!

    I know the air flow will be limited but it does have a reverse hood scoop. I have a spare svo ic. I really don’t want the expense of a front mount ic. It seems like a simple upgrade unless it involves the turbo housing.

    You would need a different turbo housing.

    That’s what I was afraid of. In light of that, I see why a front mount ic is worth considering. I wanted to stay away from major mods.
