LFX front mount Hotside route

Wondering if anyone has any pictures of there hotside routing.
Been stairing at my own 2012 LFX bay and trying to visualize a good hotside routing. Along with what im going to have to reroute or move to make room.
Looking for some direction from anyone that has already mocked up theres.

I plan on running a 70mm On3 turbo that i have from my 4v mustang kit i bought awhile back. Possibly mounting it where the stock airbox is.

So no one out there has a project like this currently? I know the twins are what everyone prefers, but I just dislike the scavenger pump for oil return. Gravity fed has never given me any lasting problems or issues ever while running.

Looks real nice. Hows the fitment when all nestled back into the bay? See you have garrets on there, did they fit up pretty well on the heads?

Fits like a glove, we did have to modify the ac line, but I removed all the ac stuff; compressor, condenser and all the lines and ducting. Each GTX2863R is rated at 430hp, so the turbo setup is good for 860hp. Should be enough room to upgrade to GTX29’s.

If someone did not know what to look for its stock looking in appearance. Thats changing though on my setup, but here is an image from this summer.
