Heres a update, been a while but it started for good now. Removed the renesis this week, installed a dummy rew and put some parts in place to fit the manifold and the intercooler piping. Installed the fuel pump and did some cleaning in the engine bay since the engine was out. Here are some pics!

Yay, turbo fits with hks manifold ! Ill mod the subframe to raise the engine because the allen heads are really close to the bar and the pan is too low, got plenty of room on top so its not a issue, only thing is ill have to notch or bang the frame to clear turbo

Nice I have been looking into what to do with the water pipes. FireCran you wanna share that rew front cover info? I'm in the middle of tearing my REW apart and was leaning towards the renesis front cover but If i can get away with the REW cover easier, I want to go that route.

Max, looks like you kept the hks manifold? Looks awesome. I'm excited to see it finished. Let me know how the adaptronic is, thats the same route I am going.

Engine is ready, its going in next week. Otherwise nothing much new. I didnt knew about back purge before so the guy who welded the downpipe didnt do it. Hope it wont do much.
