    Nice work. You should be able to take the compressor housing off and rotate it and put it back on to where ever is easiest to route the charge pipe. Any plans on how your going to route the down pipe?

    What size down pipe are you running? It seems like it will be quite low to the ground if it has to go under the cross member. Awesome deal on the bov.

    Can you clock the center on that turbo? You may want to because you generally want the oil drain straight down so the oil can flow freely back to the pan.

    Re: The OFFICAL RENDON LX-i TURBO THREAD

    you have to take those c clips off the housings and loosen the bolts to rotate the centersection. You really the oil drain to point down or a little towards the oil pan, the way you have it now might work but it might smoke also. Making my old setup work, i had to notch the front beam a little for clearance, and even then i was only using a 2.5" downpipe, its tight there.

    Re: The OFFICAL RENDON LX-i TURBO THREAD

    You should buy a wideband oxygen sensor to install before you drive the car, I would hate to see you do all that work and have to replace the motor. I would recommend the innovate lc-1. You could run one of the analog outputs to the ecu for the narrow band input and you won't need another O2 bung. The lc-1 can replicate a narrow bands O2 signal based off of what its reading and how you program it.
