Default Budget accord turbo build step by step!

Hey guys I'm here on this forum to share with you the progress of my 1994 accord LX 2.2L, I think it's kinda different from the same sleeper Civic build most people do and how it has around 500cc more displacement. I am doing a little budget build by myself or with my dad in the garage, if I can do it with basic harbor freight tools then you can too! I have alrwalr bought a eBay turbo accord kit with everything I need to turbo the car. You will see the transformation my car step by step and since this is my first turbo build I hope you will help and give any suggestions along the way! Anyway here is the kit please tell me if you see something or something that concerns you, also since this is my first time "building" a turbo car eBay was the way to go.

Look over the turbo itself really carefully, as some of the e-bay turbo units aren't the best quality. Otherwise it looks complete and should go together easy enough. About the only thing I don't see is the plumbing for the waste gate.

Would the waste gate be made of braided cable or a hose?
