Your ****'s on the wrong side bra.

If you clock your turbo downward, you should be able to run a much simpler/straighter hot side charge pipe, unless there's some PS shizat in the way.

And I'm not sure I'd trust that engine lift hook anymore...

How creative. Kind of like the 4-2-1 headers, but in a form of a turbo manifold. Me likes.

Looks cool to me

If you can make adjustable plates for the OEM cam gears after work one night, then you can also make a new bracket for your wastegate actuator and clock the compressor down so that one I/C tube isn't so silly. Other than that, nice........

Nice fabrication work. Looks like the downpipe is an easy shot being right hand drive.
