New 930 owner; have ???, o2, connectors, tensioners, smile

I just picked up a '80 930 that hadn't been driven much in the last twenty years. It ran okay but still had minor issies. So the plan is to make sure it was road worthy and do the following:

test compresion - done; from 122psi to 128psi cold
check head studs - done
adjust valves - done
replace oil sending unit (bad) and oil switch leaking) - done
replace plugs, wires, cap, rotor - done
replace bypass valve seals
replace dist vacuum unit - done
replace air pump
replace smashed air tubes
rebuild turbo, had excessive play - done see below
rebuild wastegate
replace engine tin seal
install tensioner safety collars - see below
Paint headlight rings - done
refinish Fuchs
adjust smile gap - see below
recondition leather

Where would the stock o2 sensor be connected along the exhaust and where is the plug to connect it electrically?

While I was dissasembling, I found these two plugs not connected to anything. Can anyone tell me what they are for:

Getting ready to install the safety collars. How do my chains, sprokets, tensioners look?

Is this gap between the smile and accordion normal? If not, is what's causing it?

Here's the freshly rebuilt turbo. Went something a little different than the usual K27. Its a zero clearance GT35/3LDZ hybrid. We'll see how this performs. The turbo builder swore I'd like this better than a K27
