Piping up my Garretson IC

I have just been fitting the longneck Garretson IC sold to me by Bryce Coats who you may know from the board (who I highly recommend to anyone as a good seller). Everything fits fine but I appear to be one port short of a completed system.

The photos below illustrate my setup:

My first question is which way up should the BOV be, in my setup it is currently the same way up as in the 964 turbo PET illustration shows it but in the past I have always had BOVs with the pressure side connected to the base?

Secondly there are no ports left on the IC to connect the feed to the BOV? How is the BOV normally connected with a Garretson IC? do I need to weld in a port it the turbo-IC pipe where I have drawn a purple cross?

Thirdly the overboost switch fitted in the ic has a JPT 2 terminal plug whereas my old switch had a single spade, do I need to earth one of the terminals of the jpt and connect the other to the wire from the spade terminal?

Does the rest of the setup look ok to you guys?

Thanks in advance for help with this, no idea how people managed before this forum existed or the internet!
