Ryan, your ECU is pretty much a standard turbo one right. What are you going to do in regards to the AAC + IAA valve, FICD and idle adjusting screw with that plenum as it doesnt have them in the back like the standard plenum does?

ok if you look on the throttle, i am using standard not XF cos i have a clearence issue. there is a little scre the will hold the throttle ope, thats how my car idles. i have had this setup running NA so i know it works, and Tmattys is XF but the same way. only thing i have is the brake boost line and 1 single vac line that i t piece into boost gauge, wastegate, fuel reg, and whatever else. air con i think. runs a treat. idles a bit wacky when cold, but never stalls, and at running temp idles at 900rpm no probs all the time..

well its running, needs wastegate. internal flap welded. dump pipe made. O2 sensor, and some new gear oils. i got the rocker cover oil hose now, for every one that pointed hat out to me, its blue sillicone, have also decided on polished rocker cover now too.
