The hot side of the turbos pretty much bolt right onto the heads.
Bad ass no doubt.
Look again closely... Notice in the first pic the turbos are outboard of the heads. Now look at the heads and notice the left head has a smooth machined surface. That is the back of the head, no camshaft half moon cutouts. The right side you're looking at the front... Notice the non-machined surface and half moon cutouts for the camshafts.
Now on this pic looking at the front of the engine again you will notice the left head is not machined, but the right head is... they were swapped making the intake ports be on bottom now while the exhaust in on top. To get the cam gears on the right head to the front of the engine he would have to machine new half moon cutouts along with other work I'm sure.
Also in the final pic there is no place for fuel rails or injectors. Not to mention a plenum style sheet metal intake would much easier and probably less time-consuming to build than that nest of snaking pipe. That is most definitely exhaust! Those thin pieces of sheet metal are probably just a flat surface to reference ending each pipe. I'm sure that is where a thick flange will be welded for the turbo/turbos to mount too.
You can't expect him to use stock turbos after all the custom machine work and fabrication that has gone into this thing either. I imagine it will be a big single or small twin turbo setup.
