something funky going on with the wastegate source... it's tough to see what's going on here though... also looks like there's a starter motor zip tied to a coolant hose of some sort

Looks like a fuel pressure regulator as an MBC.

it also looks like the charge pipe pushes air into the intake filter and the engine is the source for the air.

Here is another clue.... look at the pipe that makes a 90* turn toward the bottom of the engine, its just off the throttle body and goes to the intercooler.

so how could that possibly run? it'd be pulling air through the intercooler from the motor and pushing it out the filter. i'd imagine at the point where the turbo began to spool the motor would choke.

All we can see is the wierd FPR-regulated vacuum, and that he is pushing through the AFM.
Other than that, we only know that his pressure pipe routing suck.

No, the piping is completely backwards. He has the compressor side of the turbo going to the air filter and the inlet for the compressor going to the intercooler/motor.

How it runs, i have NO clue.
