GT1548 (watercooled) Install Set up....

Hi guys so I finally found the time to put my new set up in.
It's almost done and will try my best to keep this updated along the way.
Thank you for all the help that this forum has provided and looking for more along my way I'm sure

GT1548 Mocked up and fabrication in progress:
(I still have very good clearance. I can fit my whole hand between the top and bottom of the turbo, as well as front and back plenty of space to move.)

Originally started with a SFR Stage 3 Kit....

Mile away loud and gurgly custom exhaust
(Been on the car for at least 2 years)
planing on cleaning it up and painting.

I was able to use the existing exhaust housing for strength and size for a perfect fit but with a total of roughly 7' of piping inside to a 3" center cylinder pipe with center tips from an M3 (not shown) coming out.
It sound so amazing!!!!!! Gets lots of head turns cause that sound is coming form such a small car haha.

Think of it between an AMG throatiness and a really nice gurgle to match. BLISS.

AEM wideband AFR and Boost gauge in one with a clean install in the clock pod.
Programable with settable failsafe limits and data logging for 3hrs automatically to the gauge internally.
Amazon has these and a really great price!!!

I also now have more room in the engine bay. Will be adding a nice large air filter.
