I never seen a turbo setup in person and not to sure how it works but I don't think you need exaust right? I know it runs off the exaust but don't I need headers at least or what?:hmm: I am new to turbos.:nono:

No need for headers if you are running a remote setup, but you plan on running an under hood setup you will need a turbo manifold and exhaust piping out the back. Here's what I have for the exhaust to the turbo pretty simple and straight forward.

I dont know about gassers, but for diesels you want the least back pressure possible, but you will always have a little even if it is a straight through pipe

With a STS your best to keep the stock manifolds and exhausts, and to wrap all the exhaust pipe back to the turbo with header wrap to keep heat from dissipating. Headers will actually hurt the performance on StS because they have a lot more surface area to dissipate heat. That is how mine is setup and I can tell you that wraping the exhaust makes a BIG difference.
