Best way to avoid stress from a crossover tube is to add a slip joint or good quality flex coupler. This keeps the thermal expansion from pushing on the tubing. I'd support the turbo with a rigid...

This is reacting to exhaust pressure and not intake pressure. A control like this is likely to provide less pressure than the point where it opens, and will also decrease boost with engine RPM...

I'm kind of a specialist in standalones; I know the MS3 will support this engine without needing to swap crank triggers. I'm not sure about options for stock ECU tuning on this one.

This is a variation on a compound twin turbo - you might have to size the exhaust turbines differently, but it's something that typically only makes sense for very high levels of boost, in the 40 psi...

It's been sold to Internet Brands. Traffic has been pretty sporadic; this forum seems to have lost a lot of traffic after one of the sell-offs caused a bit of a forum split.

Does this engine have a real oil pump, or is it splash lubricated? If it's the latter, you might need some sort of external, crank driven pump.

I'd try the "squish the pipe" approach here too, as long as the pipe is made of steel. Not sure if cast iron would squish or crack.
