OK ill try to make this short. Im building my turbo kit. Got the turbo today so i wanted to install it to mock up, to see how it will fit.

Clears ac good but the problem is the waste gate is rubbing on the ac line. Will this hurt the ac line? I dont want the motor to rock and rub a hole or burn a hole in my ac line. Also its hitting the rad. shroud is it ok to cut a lil bit out?

Be careful bending them, they are soft aluminum. Easy enuff to do with ur hands, no tools needed. Just bend a lil at a time.

The actuator diaphragm doesn't get hot, and not having any edges, I don't think it would rub a hole in a line.

Just bend the line a little bit and it will do the trick

Modify the bracket for the wastegate, so it sits closer to the turbo. Looks like there's a lot of wasted space there.
I gotta re thread the wastegate arm so I can make it shorter, but then that puts the wastegste at a funny angle. Ill post a pic later today. But I might just been the line.
