The AMM needs to be 6-8 inches away from the inlet of the turbo..

I was going to mention this as well. You basically wanted where it would be in stock location or close by. It will get cooked being too close to turbo.

I used to have mine in that same spot. It was fine with a 15g, but I got some funky running/stalling issues after upgrading the turbo that were solved after switching to a stockish intake configuration.

So I tried starting it and the tbelt snapped(i knew it was close lol)so I put on my new tensioner and gates belt, started it again and it idles smooth for like 2 seconds then afr goes 17-20 and it sputters and idles reeeealll lumpy. I think the timing is right but could be wrong. Could the 3"amm on the stock fuel and computers cause it to go rich? Also wonder if there is a vac leak or bov isnt staying shut. Could be timing too I guess?

Lh2.4 constantly tries to keep 14.7 at idle so 14.4 is just about perfect.

Took it on its first drive today, about 30 miles. All gauges show good health but it randomly misses/goes rich for a fraction of a second, it's odd. Seem to stutter a bit at higher psi but other than that it's a blast

How many times are we supposed to reuse head bolts? Or is there a length dimension we can check to see if they are ok?
