partyartie: what manifold do you have? does it have a t2 flange? i've got money that says your manifold/turbo bolts won't come loose at the track.

Kotomile: The turbo cant be clocked any direction except for the one its in. The turbo sits too low and clocking it down makes it hit the k member, and I think the steering rack gets in the way too.

Hustler: I didn't even see a pic of your new setup with Absurdflow in this thread.

Yes, it is t2 flanged. I don't track so I wouldn't know. I'll let the other guys answer that.
