It's a boxer, the turbo(s) can be right behind the headers, as shown in the previous pics. Packaging wise, this really isn't a challenge. An FMIC still makes for better efficiency and packaging than the TMIC, but whatever, we'll see a factory turbo on this car, no matter what they're saying right now.
