good to see you making progress sal. But you might wanna consider mounting the wastegate the other way, so that the dumptube is going towards the downpipe, and move the oil feed line away from the turbo manifold and as far away from any heat source as possible.

Looking good.

yea i guess i can turn the brass fitting around so it points in the other direction, i do have extra slack in the oil line.

As far as the wastegate,, i put it in that direction becuase of room, the dp side is very cluttered, does having it pointed on the other side effect performance or function??

a slim rad fan will really free up a lot of space, they aren't that much $$$ either.

Looks pretty good, what obd are you?
id move the gate the other was as well, and get some sort of dump tube if u dont have one at least some flex pipe pointing down, if you keep it that way the turbo will just suck in hot air and youll have hi IAT's and be loosing power. also with that gate keep checking the diagpram the xspower gate diagprahms tend to crack/rip seen it first hand.
Id try to have less fittings for your feed as well, looks like theres 3 or 4 there.
And lastly u should post the full size pics :P

he will be.....if he wants me to tune it...lol...j/k
BRE/turboedit sucks *** compared to crome, and the quality of the tune with crome will greatly surpass one with an obd-0 rom editor. Crome is much more user-friendly and has so many more features (that work), and the last thing you want is a pissed off tuner thats frustrated with the software....haha. I always say, use what your tuner recommends, if they aren't comfortable or don't like a specific system for whatever reason don't use it....or at least don't use them to tune your car.
To my knowledge BRE doesn't even have a proper closed loop control, and trying to tune in open loop is rediculous.

Are you going to turn the wastegate the other way and run a dumptube sal?

The car is not completed in the pics lol. Im not going to be turning the wastegate around cuz IMO thats pointless, im building a dumptube that will exit near the ground (no lil short **** haha).

Car has a "racing" clutch, thats what the previous owner told me but im not 100% sure, the pedal feel is harder that other crxs tho.

Fawkk lol,, i hope we can do it with BRE, i dont want to be spending more cash converting the car to obd1 lol. Work your magic haha. Andrew i think will be alright, your awesome at tuning

it can, but i don't like to use it (no closed-loop control is whack and IMO makes tuning very difficult), you had an obd1 dizzy (lol), the harness/ecus don't cost very much (compared to what a blown engine costs).
Are you gunna run the dumptube right in front of your oil feed line?
Are you just gunna put a filter on the end of the turbo? Or some sort of pre-turbo intake pipe?
