Re: ATP turbo Downpipe (sirhc)

That's the best I can do.
I'm not sure which way the manifold is in this picture (probably offset toward the pass. side), but the hose routing is still pretty much identical.
I used the Volvo "cobra head" intake boot, and two 45 degree silicone connections. Note also that I am using the Volvo 240 fuel distributor which has a larger diameter air cone at the top, necessitating a larger boot (or a stock boot soaked in hot water, I'm told) Audi 5 cylinder air boots should fit directly as well.
The nice thing (for me, on an A1 at least) about the Volvo boot (aside from it being very sturdy) is that it is shaped very close to what you need, and is flexible too. The volvo piece + the two 45 degree hoses is nearly optimal. I never worry about that part of the install.
Also note that the clearance between outlet hose and manifold (throttle body) is fairly tight. Wastegate actuator needed custom bracket and rod arm to clear firewall, turbo outlet, and turbo outlet hose.
