Default How do you clock a gt2560 compressor housing?

The CHRA is in the correct orientation. I just want to move the compressor outlet a half inch or so. No wastegate actuator to worry about. Will the comp housing rotate if I just remove the 6 bolts or do I need to remove the snap ring? Ive included a pic of my setup for your viewing pleasure

Pretty sure you can just loosen the bolts on the housing to rotate.

Nice chimney

Ryan had same thing on his, it made for an AMAZING shift light when we set spark cut rev limiter. Nothing tells you that you need to shift more effectively than a flame of fire in your face

My only concern is unburnt fuel or exhaust crap constantly landing on my windshield infront of my face. Did he have any issues with that?

We did have that issue as I sat in the passenger seat with the laptop in this thing. But as 18psi said, the flames are really fun

Not worried about your exhaust manifold filling up with rain when parked?

It doesn't see rain. And IF I was in a pinch where it had to stay parked in rain, ill put a piece of vinyl wrap over it. Best solution I've thought of so far...

I cut it to length, wrapped it in DEI titanium wrap, and took a 2" hole saw to the hood. No tractor flapper for me. Leaving it how it is. Raw dog
