Default this is a stupid ?

OK so i been told a 323gtx stock turbo/exhuast mainfold will bolt to my 1.6 miata engine, but wont fit into the engine bay.... question is can i make setup work or not? it makes no sense to me when someone tells me yes it bolts to the head but wont fit inside the engine bay. thanks guys please correct it.

Seriously? You couldn't take 20 ******* seconds with GIS and a little logic and deduce that it puts the turbo in the wrong direction for use in a Miata?

This thread wasn't a good idea.

PS. Just flip it 90 degrees clockwise and stick the DP out the hood, and use an AEM cold air intake to feed it... it'll work.
