Can you show a few more pictures of the final mock-up, as the one was cut off that shows the wastegates added to the system.
Damn you're welding and pipe fabbing looks great.
I like the way you are actually fixturing this to a bracketed turbo as well.
I had lots of trouble with the GSF headers I got 2 years ago that placed the turbo about 1/4 to 1/2 inch out of original location. Made it impossible to bracket the turbo with the OEM support bracket and caused nightmares with intercooler plumbing.

Keep us posted with progress.
