Default HKS 1.8 Turbo Manifold / Turbo Clock / Wastegate question

So I have the HKS cast turbo manifold for my 97 miata motor. My plan was to put on a spare T25 off of a sr20DET that was kicking around the shop I work at. I just put the turbo on, and noticed that the compressor is clocked so that it exits right into the manifold (heading towards the motor). So the only way to really use this is to clock it. I don't have a problem doing that, but I'm not terribly sure I want to make a bracket to hold the wastegate in its proper position.

Now that you know the predicament, here are the questions:
1. If you have made a wastegate bracket for this turbo and manifold, how did you do it, and what did it look like?
2. Does anyone know of a different t25 flanged turbo that exits properly on this manifold?

Jesus freaking christ.

Get off the internet until you learn how to spell, punctuate, and use correct grammar.

Dustin, people re-clock their turbos all the time. Making rather than finding a bracket to fit is the norm, although sometimes people get lucky. Sometimes you can reuse a hole in the existing bracket and/or drill a new one. I'm surprised no one answered yet. You should search threads using key words like clock and bracket and wastegate.

Thanks I suppose the easiest would be to just tap a new hole in the compressor housing and remount it. Do you think there would be a market for pre-fabbed wastegate adapters for T25's on a miata?

By drill a new one I actually meant drill the WG bracket, not the compressor housing.
