Default GT2560R Compressor Outlet - 180 "Reclock" Adapter?

Does anyone sell a 180 "reclock" adapter for the GT2560R's compressor outlet? I want to mount a 300ZX outlet tube so that it faces forward. I've searched for hours and have come up empty. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated!

In all my searches with a similar SR20 turbo, I've never seen anything. I might suggest clocking the compressor housing to suit your application.

I would think one of the three positions could be utilized in some way. Where does your manifold mount the turbo?

Any semi-competent fabricator can do that.

not worth the money but...

STANCE - Turbo Clocking Adapter for T25 - Enjuku Racing Parts, LLC

that is to make a s15 t28 have the same orientation as a s13 t25... but it might help you.

Just clock the turbo and make IC pipes to fit IMO.

Bring it to a machine shop and see if they can use a lathe (or whatever) to remove the triangular part of the flange for you. If that does not leave enough room for a coupler, have them weld on an inch or two of aluminum tubing.

Thanks for all of the suggestions. This is going in a Locost, so space in the engine bay is at a premium. No space to route the IC piping to the side and I need clearance underneath for the steering shaft. Machining off the triangular flange might be the way to go. Or just have an adapter made up out of some 1/2" plate....

ATPturbo sales steel 3bolt T25/28 flanges (just bought one from them). Buy one of those and some tubing then weld whatever angle outlet you want

With a 90 degree elbow facing forward, one of the three mounting holes on the flange will be blocked off.

I am having a custom machined adapter priced up. Attached is a drawing in case someone ever needs a similar part made. The adapter is designed to bolt to the compressor outlet flange with three M6-1.0 x 20mm flat head socket screws. The two bolt patterns are offset 47.5 instread of 60.0 to get the outlet tube to point straight ahead instead of 12.5 to the outside of the car.
