Also, do you know where I can tap into for an oil feed?
And no worries about the German in the wiring diagram, Google can help me out
Here is the wiring diagram, there are not the original, but should do the trick :

There are 2 versions, 2-door and 4-door, have fun !

As for the intercooler, I would take a FMIC, cheaper, better performance and looks good

This is great! They're currently out of stock but told me they should have them in the next week or so, I think this will be the first thing I buy as it seems to be hard to get

It seems they removed the price and have not made it searchable on their page. Google for the win

The big question I still have is weather it will bolt up to our 2.5.

FLOW said he knew someone running the SPA. FLOW can you get confirmation that this SPA Turbo Manifold is the one being used and will bolt to the normally Aspirated 07K engine?

I asked that when I emailed the company. They confirmed this will fit on a Mk6 2.5 Golf

Quoted from the email
"i'll have the manifold again in about 10 days, and yes, it will fit to your car."

Lightbulb For Interest sake .... .

Most of the 2.5 Turbo builds are in the US, most notably is ThyGreyt build, the turbo stuff starts on page 13 Post #285 where he buys a SPA Turbo Log Manifold.

I found this Canadian built Unitronic 2.5 Turbo Post on our good ol' Golf MK6 Forum.

It's looking like this may be 2020 instead, I could have managed the turbo build But the supporting mods (clutch, dif , brakes) really bump up the price. I will still be doing this though! I'll start with IEs intake this year though As I planned to have it with the turbo any how.
