Default Concise guides to putting it all together

Hey guys. Im very close to assembling all the parts for my build. The one thing im having some trouble with is picturing it all put together. Does anyone have any diagrams of fully assembled turbo systems, videos of a full install, step by step build guides? Ive read corkys book but its a tad outdated with new ECUs and whatnot. It just very time consuming to lookup where every single vacuum hose goes, or where each sensor needs to be placed. Anyone have any modern books that outline this? Im not against looking it up on my own and reading but its hard to even know what to look up for. The FAQ doesnt include some the modern sensors used, nor how they are attached. And brains megasquirt installation guide is down (which im sure would be a huge help!).

Any help for a noob? Thanks!

Go on the FM and BEGi sites and download both their manuals. That's as close to complete step by step as you're ever gonna get.

Or if you're really feeling smart, try understanding what each part is supposed to do, why it does what it does, and how it does what it does...then you won't need instructions.
