Default Clocked up 3071 - WG bracket

This thing is starting to kick my ***. I have a older FM2 that I'm upgrading and part of that is a GT3071R. Had to grind a little on the exhaust manifold so the compressor housing doesn't hit, now trying to figure out a way to mount the WG actuator. I have to clock the compressor pointing up for the FM IM hoses to attach. Anyone here running a gt3071R with the compressor outlet pointing up? If you do I'd love to see your bracket and actuator.

I just got a piece of scrap aluminum i had in my garage and drilled 2 holes so that the wastegate would be pretty much parallel with the knobby on the other side.

^^ That is pretty much how mine looks. Corky (BEGI) made my bracket at his shop from a piece of aluminum plate in less than 30 minutes. Two holes use the existing compressor studs to mount it to the turbo (left side of bracket). The three holes you can see in the picture are where the wastegate rod pokes through (center) and where it bolts on (top and bottom).

Maybe something like this will allow you to position it where it is needed.
