The installation was modeled after an article in an Australian Magazine. Our work was much neater and more flowing but if it weren't for the magazine photos I would not have believed the turbo would fit where it did.
It's very close but there is clearance for the wheel movement.

The gases from the 4 headers all pass into the turbo through the small retangular entry port as shown on the flange at the bottom of the photo.

It's important to shape the area where the headers all collect with as much open area as possible. It is worth spending a lot of time blending the tubing as there is no room for a separate collector
It takes a lot of work to make round tubes collect into a retangular/oval port.

The stainless tube from air exit of the turbo splits to join the intercoolers either side with a rubber hose.
The large bore exit tube polished and snaking under the bike to split into 2 pipes either side through Kerker™ silencers.
