Block off the EGR with a little piece of plate and some RTV at the intake manifold. Plan your air filter setup so you can build a cold airbox around it if you decide to so you don't have to redo anything.

Well, Unfortunately, I have no pictures right now. School took priority for quite some time, and I got into homebrewing as well and that took up my time. But I have finally finished my build! There are still some minor tweaks, but It is largely done and I am boosting at 15 psi as of today. Here is what I have done since:

*Turbo pictured above was replaced. It blew bearings and seals and turns out it is a stage 3 turbine lol. Now I have a t3 60/48 from Blaast. Hope it works out.
*Finally Installed my ACT xt street clutch. It is a billion times better than the 4 puck clutch I had on my last car.
*Built the pre-turbo intake pipe. Still plan to route the air filter to the cowl in order to get cooler air, but that is not urgent on the agenda.
* Lowered the car by an inch after I realized the clicking sound i had over little bumps in the road was my brake pads and not the tein shocks. A quick adjustment to the brake hardware resolved my woes.
