Tacked and ready for test fitment. Now I just need to figure out how the heck I'm going to weld those runners onto the merge collector.

Will you be able to get the intercooler pipe on to the top there at that angle?

Haven't moved the angle of the outlet since the test placement of the turbo. I think I had it that way to clear the everything in the front but there will definitely be somewhat of a bend. If too much I may have to adjust it and rework the wastegate bracket. We will see during the test fit.

Well back to the drawing board. Turns out I did not fully account for how far forward the oil pan is. Looking back at grimmspeed's photos it looks like they had to move the turbo a lot closer to the radiator fan than I thought. So I need to recut and re-tack the headers. I also need to adjust the outlet angle due to the new position. Luckily I think I will now have room for the standard efr bracket. Will post more pictures when fitment is done along with the charge pipe roughed in.

Okay good news and bad news. After a day under the car test fitting I was able to finally get a satisfactory placement. I also got the charge pipe roughed in. Luckily the Cobb intake only needed a 3" coupler and it was good to go. I will need to extend the j-pipe about 2.5" and weld on the v-band flange. Definitely going to need a turbo blanket to present the fan housing from getting too hot. Bad news is I was so busy I forgot to take pictures when I had the charge pipe in.

That's the benefit of having a FARO arm or laser point cloud scanner and chucking the OE parts in CAD

Very impressive effort so far.

I am going to share a word of caution. You will need a larger intake than 3" if you plan on running more than 24 psi. I am not a boost expert, but I can tell you that my MAF, with a 3" intake, was limited to 24psi. When I went over that, I threw a code.

You maxed the voltage or the calculated load limit for the ecu?

It must be a tricky MAF setup. I've seen 75MM MAF's support a couple hundred more WHP.
