Default Rear Mounted Turbo

Has anyone done a rear mounted turbo on a 6thgen? I've seen some 350z use this setup but didn't know about doing it on a maxima. Just throwing the idea out there don't know if it's worth it or not.

What would the benefit be?

I'm sure with enough money, anything is possible.

I guess the benifits would be more room to work, less modification under the hood( moving things like the batterie and othe components for room) and its not a necessity to have an intercooler because the turbo is getting slightly cooler exhaust air because its further away from the motor and the return pipe is already being cool by air passing from under the car.

Some cons I thought of are where to run your filter( keeping it dry) and probably lots of lag due to all the piping.

But to be honest I'm not sure I've seen a ram 1500 with this setup and he said it was fairly easy to install but he bought a bolt on kit and then I searched around online and found they do it on 350z,370,g35 coup, g37 coup, corvettes, mustangs. I couldn't find one for the 6th gen max so I guess it would have to be a completely custom setup.

There was a few guys on another maxima Fourm who had it on a 4th gen
