good progress! thats looking nice!
looks like u plumbed into the same oil feed as myself,
one thought i had to run a reducer just before the turbo to limit oil flow, cos if u run to much oil into the turbo it can make the turbo leak and also starve other areas of the engine from oil.

is ur intercooler going to be mounted like that and sticking out the bottom of the front bumper or is there a piece missing? im not to familiar with w210s

Thanks man.

There is a piece missing on that bumper that covers the intercooler. I do have a restrictor just before the turbo, it should help equalize the oil coverage around the entire engine.

Right now im having major troubles removing my spare oil pan so i can put on my newly altered original pan. No matter which way i twist and turn it, its always stuck against something so it wont come out. Even with the engine lifted more than enough.

yea i remember taking my oil pan out of the car, man it was a pain in the ass.
i jacked the engine up until everything was creeking and groaning, and even cracked the plastic radiator-fan surround slightly :-(
i think from memory i half took off the oil pump pickup aswell to give me more room.
goodluck!

im not sure what you mean by alot of stuff but from memory i used a six sided socket and 6 sided set spanner to prevent it from slipping as they were tight,
but that wasnt nearly as hard as mounting the new maniflold, i had to cut down some of the studs to make that fit

I'm not so sure about that manifold. Usually you want the WG to be a bit closer to the Turbine, and those look to be some sharp bends the gas will have to take to get out the wastegate or turbine.

It should work fine, but won't be the most efficient setup.

Im doing a simple fuel controlling setup for engine management and using an Apexi SAFC NEO.

Those bends are at a more gentle angle at the ends and the same 90 degree angle as the stock manifolds. The piping is a little over 2 inches versus the stock which is under 1.5 inches when round. Im not sure what you mean by the wastegate. The wastegate can be anywhere on the manifold and still do its job with the efficiency on a log style manifold, also its less than 3 inches away from the turbo anyway, must be the angle that makes it seem different. I made the log style for space and its generally cheaper but also they can make more power that an equal length style.
