That sure looks nice :D

It sure comes close to radiator that intake manifold, relocating filter is good idea, but I don't know how sharp corners exactly start to cause restrictions to intake side, anyway one thing to keep on mind :)

That's done before. But for a daily driver I would go for the original injection system!

No more engine bay shots no. TBH you dont need them

Strut brace is a one off made by myself. Not for sale.

From memory, and if it's anything like the turbo, there should only be a few wires to splice, +voltage, ground, rev counter and something else... Things like oil pressure should all be there from the 300 loom, but I'll let Adam confirm it all!
