951 turbo placement, WAS->RE: Colors under the hood, longish (heat, crossflow heads)

Nope, Dad's 951 has turbo pretty low on exhaust side after a longish
EM (starter is underneath/towards intake side), intake flow goes through
intercooler in front over to the other side. It's a crossflow head,
with the cam in a superstructure and cover on top of the actual "head".
Distributor on front of cam, block canted at about 20 degrees, and it's
packed in there pretty good and tight.
You can see that the turbo placement on the 951 is on the drivers side
of the engine bay.
