Test fitting the new turbo

Ever since my turbo broke down just before the summer, I’ve been looking forward to getting back into the garage to pick it apart to see what had happened. It seems that the shaft snapped clean off at the compression side of the turbo causing the housing to crack open. I’m not sure what caused this, but it could be that the shaft had too much play since the bearings were worn down and it basically self destructed… My plan is to fit a Garret GT2860RS using a high-flow manifold with a T3 flange and fabricate a custom down-pipe instead of the original cat. I will also need to make a custom turbo intake pipe with all the fittings needed for it.
