Mk6 gti (awd swap) Top mount gtx3071 set up

I start my installation of top mount turbo in my mk6.Haven't seen anyone doing this so i decide to do it because i think this way is better for many reasons as intake heatsoak easier turbo removal and inspection and others.here are pics from installation

Looks good and I stand corrected top mount will fit. GTX small frame fits, pte i dont think would the comp housing is considerably larger.

Get your hot side ceramic coated and add a bunch of heat shielding to you rain tray to protect the ecu. And i thing you will need to rewire your coil packs to face forward so the harness doesn't melt on first start.

I've seen someone in Ukraine do this with an EFR
