Yes, I've seen pics of the Rear turbo kit on an 05 Mustang. It does exist, I just can't fine the links to it. But it has been done. If I remember correctly, I think the kit was in the 450 RWHP range. Don't know about price.
Tasty above pretty much laid it out for you, much better cooling which is normally the only downfall for the turbos compaird to the super charged cars. You will also get a better weight distribution and with that more weight moved to the rear where you want it on the wheels...Crazy001 said:Can I ask a stupid question? Why? What's wrong with a conventional turbo setup?:?:

I won't claim to know much about turbo's or spark plugs, but NASCAR has a tendency to curtail technology to make the sport affordable. So does the NHRA. For example, when was the last time you saw a double overhead cam, variable valve timing, or even EFI in either sport? Not likely to happen for a very long time. (though Don Schumacher in NHRA is making rumblings about it) There might be other reasons for the 4 tip plugs, longevity perhaps, don't know.Ants2005stang said:Why doesn't nascar use 2,3,4 tipped spark plugs instead of 1 tip? B/C there isn't an improvment in performance. Why doesn't NHRA, IHRA, or other drag associations use this tubro method? B/C it isn't better than what they have.
