That’s a good option also. The CDR (tuna can) plugs into the valve cover through that hole next to the flange so that may be in the way. I was planning on the adapter being 4” or so tall anyway to allow room for a wastegate. I’m thinking 44 mm will be a good size. I need to fab an elbow from the exhaust outlet to the downpipe too. Would there be a problem plumbing the wastegate outlet to the elbow, or is that too close to the exhaust outlet?

I can't see hood clearance, but if you can space a few inches in your adapter, I would just take the turbo higher, and put the wastegate towards the valve cover, looks like there will be room to pipe it back down the hot side following the down pipe.

Another pic I found with the turbo removed. Should be plenty of room for a wastegate up there.

Yes the rusted pipe is the crossover. To the left of it is the 3.5” downpipe. It will be replaced with a new 2.5” mandrel pipe at some point, more sooner than later. Here’s a better pic of the exhaust flange bolted to the manifold. I think I’m leaning toward coming straight out of the adapter toward the front of the truck with the wastegate, then run the vent pipe back, next to the manifold, and into the downpipe. You can see it in the pic to the left of the manifold.

Hard to see the manifold and flange. Is the rusted under pipe near the downpipe area the cross over from the other cylinders up to the flange ?

Here’s what I’m working with. 6.5L with a stock Borg Warner GM-8 turbo. My thought is to build the adapter with an angle to it to move the turbo toward the intake, giving room on the air box side for the actuator. I want to either pipe the wastegate forward under the center section and compressor or out the side of the adapter, and outlet back into the downpipe. I’m thinking forward will have more room for the wastegate.

There they are! Probably weren’t displayed because I wasn’t logged in at the time.

If you looked at the first post for the libraries, I have the zips as attachments :)

I’ll get some pics tomorrow in the daylight. I’m excited about putting this project together.

I’ve got IDE installed and running, Common Code 2.0 open, and some of the libraries. Where do you get the CAN library? I didn’t see a download link like the others.
