Those sure are compact, not sure why you'd want them.

HeepJeep and I built a custom set like these 3 years ago.

Its really nice to not have to relocate everything. Our kit used the stock airbox/location too. Im glad to see someone else is actually making it in kit form, because I think its a nice route to go.

Less room for the exhaust gasses to compress and heat to go means more responsive, quicker spool.

How come? The heat may be concentrated to a smaller area, but it is still the same two chargers flowing those same exhaust gasses.

Plus you'd be able to get the filter farther away from the heat.

Would think the location of the large turbo in normal apps would allow for more heat removal with it being next to the fender but I guess that could hurt spool up.

Has anyone tested this setup much for towing? And I am assuming it still uses the stock charger as the primary?

Josh2002 was working on getting a set of real tight twins that retAined the battery and coolant tank in the stock location think it looks good but I don't want my big turbo right next to my battery.The battery I these trucks sweet acid as it is because they get to hot and I'd rather have a chance at doing some maitanance if I installed injectors and 1 was seaping I for sure wouldn't want to pull the turbo to tighten it.But that's just me.
