Cost-Effective​ N54 Single Turbo Setup

So the RB turbos are out and went with the ON3 61mm single turbo kit. I ordered just the hot side parts and bought all the other accessories separate. This would entail the boost control solenoid, Motiv Boost Box Controller, and etc misc items.  I did a lot of bargain hunting, and forum watching to keep my price low since I needed to cover other maintenance items and such. Below is a list of parts that I bought to help in the install. One thing to note is my coolant tank was already relocated from my inlet install. So I didn’t have to worry about relocating it. I choose to use the on3 provided wastegate to really see if it could hold up. I took it apart and used 2000 grit sandpaper to lightly sand the wastegate stem to make sure it was smooth.
