Oh I see, he meant tileted about the left right axis. Sorry.
The ETD IS slightly tilted in that direction - about 5*.
The 45* tile I'm talking about is about the fore-aft axis.

Hustler -

Somewhat off target, but my log-style cast mani pushes on a horizontal plane, exiting the turbo downward vertically.

I post this more to ask, if you're exploring options, why are you sticking with a tubular vice cast manifold ?

I'm going tubular so I can get away from fasteners in general. I can't seem to make it work and I'm not going to keep trying and working on it all the time.

I'm going for teh ultimate in reliability.

Some of the Suby rotated mount kits tilt the turbo maybe 10-15 degrees with no problems..

Exactly what I want to do, more or less.
