Thanks!
original turbo was TD05:


Progress update.
Managed to mount Aeromotive FPR and figure out the layout of fuel system.
Did my first ever AN hose end...

Well... I must say that they might be a really cool system, but It's not that easy. Especially without proper tools.

These stainless steel braided lines are real pain to work with, literally.. Cutting lines with angle grinder makes such a mess, but I couldn't find better way to do it. Will need to figure out how to clean them properly before final assembly.
Once cut braiding starts to open up and it's real pain to put it in the nut... Also not having proper AN wrenches I scratched all the nuts
well, it's not going to a beauty contest anyway...

Also I noticed that after tightening the fitting hose moves back in the nut about 1mm. I read that it shouldn't move back, but I believe that 1mm doesn't counts really as a failure...

Please correct me if I'm wrong before I spray engine bay with fuel

In general, final assembly is not such an easy step as I thought. Maybe it would be easier with OEM parts, but all those silicone hoses and aftermarket stuff create packaging issues. The more stuff I put in the engine bay, the more question I have I thought that fuel plumbing will be easy, but that FPR is so big! And looking on nice AN plumbing setups I couldn't even imagine that those fittings need so much space. Nice learning experience

I feel ya there! When I was doing final assembly of my motor I thought I had the engine bay super neat...then all the bits and pieces came together. Rat's nest.

Almost managed to finish fuel lines yesterday, got more and more stuff mocked up in the engine bay to confirm fitment. Got to AEM methanol kit. Originally I wanted to mount nozzle straight under the intercooler outlet which would be perfect, as I understand, but heater core lines are in the way.
Will it work if I'll mount it offset to the side like this?


That's the mock-up of nozzle length, need to have hose as well.
Maybe I could arrange some kind of bung with 45 degree angle to be welded in closer to outlet, that would be perfect.

Also got an opportunity to buy 5 speed DCCD gearbox with R180 rear diff.
R180 means that I will need driveshafts and uprights as well. I can get them from the same guy, but then I don't know what to do with brakes. Because parts for sale are form Ver 5 STi RA car and they seem to have pretty unique rear brake setup. Basically it's the same as my Type-R, there are GC8 STi 2 pots with vented brake discs and odd handbrake shoe size. I probably can't use my rear brembo calipers and DBA rotors... Need either get complete assembly with brakes or get only tranny and diff and look for more common newage STi uprights that will work with brembos and discs I already bought.
Need verify this and find more to not to buy stuff that I'm not going to use...

For nozzle mount I found this https://store.034motorsport.com/wate...apter-90d.html
The problem is that they quote 50+ dollars for shipping and I can't find any similar fittings available... I can't be the only one who encouted this problem, right? There should be something like this available...

Looks like he went non-symmetricl route. But it's common thing to install nozzle on the bottom straight under the outlet using 90 degree fitting. From what I understood it's regular 1/8 NPT male-female fitting so I ordered one to test.

Wow, it's not even a semi-annual update anymore... Why does it have to be so slow?
A lot of things happened, but car is still in pieces
Diff I was going to get with gearbox I bought appeared to be R160, so I ended only getting gearbox. one less problem to worry about.
Now I have spare 5 speed DCCD gearbox to play when get car running...
Engine-side fuel system is assembled, still need to replace fuel pump but this time do it without having starvation issues in turns afterwards.
ECU harness modification was not as exciting as I expected. Still need to finish it and get ESL ECU from another car.
The main issue I'm having now is power steering. It appears that V2 ps lines do not really fit with v3-v4 style manifold and v3 style lines I got don't fit my steering rack.
I ended up getting bunch of AN fittings and ptfe line to make custom one, but in RHD car where steering shaft is at the same side where line connections and downpipe are the space is really minimal an I'm struggling with high pressure line routing.
Anybody has good pics of clean custom PS setups on RHD gc8?
My best looking option so far is to run the line from 45 deg fitting downwards along subframe. It will be between subframe and downpipe with minimal clearance which I don't like but for now it looks like cleanest if not the only possible way I see to get it done.
P.S. nice one:

couple of pics
90 deg Barb fitting for return bolted up fine, but SS fitting for high pressure is challenging.
Here is 90 degree one pointing upwards. Fitting clears ok, but space for hose is tricky.

45 deg fitting upwards - better fitment for hose, but fitting is too close to uppipe

45 deg facing forward looks like enough space to the uppipe.

Plan to fit hose like this:
