    Preparing for single turbo - advice?

    Hi all,
    decided to have a local fabricator build a twin scroll top mount single turbo(tial 44mm mvr, gtx3582 and whatever terry@bms suggests for wastegate control for anyone wondering). Work should start around the middle of May but in the meantime I plan to move the coolant bottle, washer filler and vacuum canisters out of the way. I think I've read that the diesel coolant bottle is a good solution. Looking for the most-oem looking, easiest/most reliable way to make room.
    so...out with it!

    With a top mount turbo it is never going to look OEM. I mean that turbo is going to take up space in the engine bay. Just try to keep it clean but the most important thing is the turbo is mounted and tuned well.

    There is no real advise I can really give you. Just be ready, it won't be easy at all. Make sure you have the right o2 placements and good flow for wastegate priority. Other than that, you can wait for more kits to be released so you don't have to go into R&D.

    I meant I'd like to use the most oem parts possible when relocating things. I know the turbo is going to take up a huge amount of room and certainly will never be oem looking again.

    Why wastegate vs. turbine priority?

    They should be in same direction of flow, turbine priority isn't really what you would call it. It's a given when all flow is directed there.

    You will need longer coolant line extended at the bottom of the reservoir as well as wires for the sensor. Need to make a custom bracket to hold coolant reservoir with new placement of power steering reservoir as well.

    Wastegate control is going to be with the MAC solenoid. Have you seen his thread on N54tech about all you need for single turbo applications.

    Prepare to address any lingering issues with your car before you add the good stuff. I've done motor mounts, tranny mounts, leak down/compression tests, fuel system checks & clutch replacement.

    I've purchased a bunch of misc parts as well, engine oil, motul tranny oil, extra fittings for my fuel pump install, stick tires & some other $#@!. I've kept everything organized via an Excel spreadsheet. $#@! adds up quick!

    Not real excited for the pain in the ass part. Attempting to "do it right the first time" by moving everything around in the engine bay prior to dropping the car off. Car is already fbo with meth and will have a walbro 455 lpfp installed once it warms up. Clutch is good, no oil leaks, suspension and brakes are sound. What else is there before I turn it over to the fabricator?

    Haha as linracing said, moving stuff around is the easy part. Start doing fabrication, the annoying part will be the coolant and oil lines. They're push fit instead of NPT so it's harder to replicate etc. Just have money ready for anything to come into play.

    Yep, I posted a few stuff and so did my fabricator. V8rx7 is his IG name, I'm P_Harouni. I'm going to his house today to see the rest. I need to finish up the coolant reservoir and soldering the wires and solenoid sensors etc.

    That's why I'm leaving the fab work to a professional, haha. Saw the pictures of your setup on IG, looks good.

    I was trying to look for it, I remember @Eleventeen had the part number on his build on n54 tech.

    I just custom made a bracket that holds the power steering and the reservoir tank together on the other side. Still looks clean as hell.

    I also cut the stock boost solenoid sensor plug and soldiered the mac solenoid. I made my own PNP harness so i didn't have to splice the factory wires up there a for a cleaner look I guess.
