Default turbo fitting in s197

I have a 2005 v6 and was wondering how i could possibly fit a turbo under the hood or have room for an intercooler and all of the pipes in between. Has anybody done this or seen it? do I need to move around stuff to make it fit?

Lots of people running turbos. Brumby over at the MustangCollective.com has the Powerhouse turbo set up on his car and runs in the 11's.

I know theres a lot of turbos out there but do things like radiators or fluid reservoirs need to be moved around or are people just going around them

Mostly the piping gets routed around everything. The intercooler mounts up front in front of all the other coolers. Sometimes a tubular K-member is used to give more space underneath to route pipes.

you can also go for a supercharger as well, there is less piping to deal with
