Alert me when someone posts in this thread:

Without heavily modifying the floor of the engine bay, and probably the 900 downpipe as well, a C900 turbo exhaust from the turbo back won't fit.

The 99T blows straight down, and exits the engine bay in front of the front axle centerline. It makes an almost 90 degree bend to go back alongside of the "belly" of the engine bay, then has to hook a right turn to go into the catalyst and/or on to the middle muffler, etc.

A C900 turbo exhausts diagonally through the engine bay, exiting just in front of the axle and going under it, all the way with much smoother turns than the 99T. They could do that, since the floor of the engine bay was completely redesigned, and the car lengthened between the front axles and the A pillars.

From the cat back, though, you're fine until you get past the axle. Here, the earlier design of the trunk on the hatch will, at the very least, have your tailpipe coming very close to the bottom of the spare tire well. All 900s with the H motor have the mini spare that lays flat in the shallower trunk area. But this could easily be worked around by judicious bending of the tailpipe in the area.
