The tune shouldn't change as I re-used many of the components from my rear mount turbo setup. I bought myself a Miller TIG welder so I built a log manifold to learn how to weld.

The wastegate is the silver valve down low behind the oil pan that is shown in the video. Sorry about the quality, I tried to chop out the dark section but the edit didn't work on YouTube.

Looks like a great setup! Is there a benefit to moving the stuff under the hood?

Rear mounts always rely on an electric oil pump to return the turbo oil back to the engine. These can be unreliable and don't always get the job done. Mounting the turbo up front is also much more efficient plus safer for driving in wet conditions or off-roading.

That's what I thought it was. Looks like a great project!
