I decided to "flip" the turbo to fit inside the cowling better. I thought I would share this because some people may not know that the center section commonly calls the CHRA (center housing rotating assembly) and the compressor can be rotated, or "Clocked".
In my case, as in a lot of installations, how you configure the mounting of the turbo can include many different positions. All are a trade off. The main issues to work through are the routing of the exhaust pipes and of course compressor outlet pipes so it can connect to the intake. None the least is to also work out the best passage for the oil drain hose.
Here is a picture of the turbo flipped compared to the previous position. You can see from my previous photos this position lowered the turbo by several inches, created a better clearance from the cowling. It does make it a bit more of a challenge to route the exhaust and the drain tube, but overall I like this set up better. You can see that I had to weld up an a short 2" adapter so as the turbo bolt pattern is different that the Honda exhaust flange.
I have not re-positioned the CHRA and Compressor yet. That is to come..
