Default Do I have to clock this turbo????

So in looking at how the turbo will mount to the manifold I have it seems to me that the oil lines are almost at vertical as is. Is this good or do I need to clock it? The drawing with the circle represents the angle the lines are at as is.

Would i work as is? Probably be just fine.

Having said that, I would clock it now while it's off the car. Do it.

at even 10° off vertical (which is the accepted maximum tilt) i was having bad oil drainage issues.....

considering you are about 150° off :gay: i'd assume it needs a good rotation....

if you need directions, look for the "diy projects" thread in the diy seciton.

Where's the clocking directions in the DIY? I see the rebuild part but you didn't really detail the clocking part is it pretty self explanatory?

Make it 100% vertical.. take away any foults...
Make a new bracket for the wastegate.

Exhaust side: just loosen the bolds and turn...(be carefull for the blades)
1 Intake snapring: remove, turn, place back. (old style t25)
2 Intake bolds: undo all 2 turns, then turn. (new style t25)
