Stan is right. I don't want to dis your build but it is not correct. The turbo runs off the exhaust and the way you have it plumbed it will do nothing. Do a search on Nelson Racing Engines. You will find all kinds of reference pics.
The headers need to route into the turbine side like Stan said. That is the side you currently have plumbed into the firewall. The compressor side of the turbo will go thru the firewall into your intercooler box and then back out, into the air box on top. The outlet for the exhaust should run out the front fenders or back under the car..

Just trying to help.
