The idea to put the turbocharger and intercooler in the bed was more a space issue than anything else. The fella responsible for this odd concoction says that the placement had to do with a lack of space under the truck’s hood and a need to keep weight over the truck’s rear axel.
While it’s not the most practical setup, it works to provide the Sonoma’s 5.7-liter LS1 with an extra 18 psi of boost. It may not be pretty, but based on what we see (and hear), it works like a charm.
