Looks like a little strategic grinding on the turbo housing would fix you right up.

Hey Lars! Thanks for the input. I know that you would have mentioned it had you encountered any issues, but it was for me to experience having modified and clocked the turbo here. It really was just a fitment issue in the end, so no harm done minus the dead turbo ornament haha!

HB - Yeah, a little grinding of the casting would have made the over-sized stud work like butter. I will probably stick to 8mm standard next time though =X

FWIW, I am leaving all of my currently installed prerequisites on the car to make a future installation a simple process [EMU, LC-1, plugged -10AN return, GReddy boost+TT, and aluminum plumbing]. GT28R, T3, or bust!
