Thats unique, i can't say i've seen it done that way. That's alot of heat, very close to the hood... are you going to be doing anything with that? What kind of engine internals do you have to support that huge ass charger?

I was surprised with the heat, or lack thereof actually. I had planned to ceramic coat everything inside and out, but now I'm not sure I need to. The downpipe runs less than a quarter of an inch from the (plastic) heater box and I have been right up near 1200 degrees for minutes at a time (pulling monteagle at speed) and it shows zero sign of heat. I just don't think that much heat is making its way past the first turbine housing. I woln't worry about it until I start towing with it again. I could see that getting those pipes hot again.
Engine has never had the heads off. Stock powerstroke plus studs and valvesprings/pushrods.
Should be good for 700+ on fuel and 600-650 reliably.
That turbo should be good for 1000hp depending on how you use it. Same turbo does right at 1200rwhp on fuel on my buddies car, and has done over 1400rwhp on fuel on some others.
