Default Turbo Flange Causing Problems

Im very close to finishing my turbo build but I keep getting a few problems. My latest is that my compressor outlet pipe is to close to the bonnet when my 90 degree silicone 2" to 2.25" reducer is fitted and the bonnet is been pushed upwards.

I cant clock the compressor outlet by 180 degrees as there is nowhere to put the actuator and I cant rotate the compressor housing enough to allow adequate space for the bonnet to close.

Any suggestions?

Im thinking the only way forward is to buy a compressor outlet adapter and hope it is smaller than the standard T28 neck off a nissan 200sx. I even chopped mine down as much as I dared with no luck.

I need to resolve this fast as it is supposed to be its first start on Saturday.

Thanks
Andy

Clock the turbo and make a steel bracket to relocate the actuator, bolts to the compressor housing. Any local fab shop should be able to do it in an hour or less

I didnt really want to have to clock the turbo but I guess that might be the only way. A flange would be great or maybe fabricate a piece of alloy to my pipe and point it downwards. That would probably work.

I will investigate the posibility of clocking it when its light tomorrow.

You'll have to clock it and figure out a new way to mount the actuator.
