New Turbo build
Here my new turbo setup limited turbo lag.... I need only any new and clean silicone pipes )

Looks good Peter. I see a carbon fiber hull

Looks great man but have you tried this kit out yet? I ask because I did a waterbox setup before and it was a bit laggy. A turbo doesn't really need a waterbox just a watercooled downpipe. Also, again, have you tried this kit out yet because the turbo seems to be really low and it would worry me that water will come back up the the turbo's housing causing damage to the turbo. And lastly, where are you putting your O2 sensor?
Great looking kit nonetheless but seems to me that you will rethink a few things down the road and make it better. I've been down that road before so i'm just pointing out what I have learned along the way so don't take offense or think I am criticizing anything.

Also, something else I noticed: You aren't cooling your hot housing
That thing will get so hot that it will burn right through your carbon fiber hull.

turbo and all pipes what is hot already ceramic coated, and O2 sensor you "can" see on pics, right-top but behind the oil pipe of turbo. I have in stock exhaust strip, so if too hot i will install no problem. But I think no need. Also NOT back pressure from waterbox sure, we had tested by gauge. I like waterbox ), Hull build from epoxy not from poliester like all stock hull. Else 3 year ago I had turbo w/o watercooled house and not was problem ( that turbo was also ceramic coated )

All the ceramic coating will do is keep it from rusting
It will still be way too hot for max performance
The turbo will work like a muffler so for max performance leave it out
Efficiency is the key for max hp per psi
All the small stuff really adds up
looks great but where are you getting the fresh air from?
can we please see the intake mani?
loose those cheap ass worm clamps and get some good ss t-bolt clamps for the boost tubes
what are you using for a boost controller?

ceramic coating will keep it very cool, you can even touch it after use....
