    Put number 1 on the driver's side (may need to fabricate a bracket). Relocate number 2 to the garbage. They are vacuum reservoirs for the stock wastegates. Your new wastegate won't use them (since it uses positive pressure).

    There you go.

    There's already a little tab where you can make the the bracket for the coolant reservoir. Don't forget all that intake stuff will be gone with that turbo sitting there. What turbo is that you have ready? Where you located LOL

    Just zip tie it in and add some PVC piping to the intake. You'll be fine.

    That site already exists, it's http://www.homemadeturbo.com/ but it might as well be called redneckturbo.com from half the projects I've seen over the years. LOL

    That's my car lol.

    Yes engine cover can come off, I would recommend keeping it on or placing some sort of heat shield over the wires just in case.

    has anyone worked out what's roughly the largest turbo that would be able to fit in a top mount for the N54?

    would you be able to fit in say a GT40/42/7675/S400?

    i wonder if the dimensions are available online for a measure up?

    If you don't mind modifying your chargepipe, you can go with the 335d coolant reservoir like I did.

    Why the long intake pipe on your turbo? Try a mushroom HKS style like the Supras.

    Of all the top mounts I've seen, yours is the cleanest and most complete. The people running screens on the turbo and only heat tape etc are going to be in for surprises after 5000+ plus miles and the turbos are taking a crap and stuff is melting.

    Exactly what I said to him on n54 tech. Eleventeen has then cleanest and best manifold design out of all the single turbos. Sorry, no offense to the other customs.

    Thank you. I'm happy that nothing has melted or burned up. Even with the turbo blanket and wrap, there is quite a bit of heat in that area, with a lot of plastic parts.

    Thank you! I tried to make it look as professional as possible, despite being made in my garage / drive way.
