Into the refinement part of the installation I see.
Yea, finally. I would like to thank you, and everyone else for all your help. It's such a nice car to drive now.

Oh, I did want to post this. I took some side-by side pics of the two turbos to show the size difference. Note the brass nipple on the old turbo, that's to keep the PCV system intact. It's actually a good thing to have vacuum on the crankcase at all times, especially under boost. This helps with keeping the oil drain from the turbo operating smoothly, plus it sucks all the oil/gas fumes, as well as humidity out of the block. I'll be incorporating this same style setup to the new turbo's intake once it's done.

[Edit]: The PCV line is on the intake side of the turbo, not the pressure side! That would be really bad, but halarious to watch what would happen, LOL.

Old turbo specs:
Compressor
exd.: 36mm
ind.:24.3mm

Turbine wheel
exd.: 36mm
ind.:27mm

New turbo wheel specs:
Bearing: Journal
Cooling: Oil & Water
Compressor
Inducer: 29 mm
Exducer: 41 mm
Trim: 50
A/R 0.33

Turbine
Wheel: 35.5 mm
Trim: 72
A/R: 0.43
