I have what I believe is a first gen kit the compressor housing is clocked towards the hole in the passenger side fender..I thought that's just how this kit was made but I installed the header with the turbo attached today and noticed the compressor housing was loose so it could be clocked..all the on3 kits I've seen had the exit of the housing facing down like this


Mine is facing this way


Here is my cold side piping if it helps


Thanks..I've almost got this kit bolted on jus wanna be sure because I've never seen a on3 kit clocked the way mine is..

just clock it to wherever you want! Loosen the bolts on the flange on the center section side of the compressor, rotate housing to where you want it, and tighten back up! :thumbup:

actually looking at your cold side pipes, it may need to stay the way it is

Yes but I am asking what the appropriate way is..lol has on3 ever had it clocked a different way? Or was it always facing down like 331lilcoupes pictures

i just tried to visualize the cold pipe routing. coming out of rhe intercooler you would need the top left and top right pices to connect to tb. From other side of intercooler you will have to 90 with th bov on it. That leaves the other three pieces. long strait into the bov pipe. Leaving the short two pieces. to connect the turbo to the long strait pipe, you would need to have the turbo clocked facing the fender.

hope that all makes sense

Put everything on first and then clock the turbo according to where your cold side meets the turbo..it will be easier to do then. ...I always put the turbo on last...you can clokc the turbo and oil drain that way

This is one of our low production number kits that we changed the wastegate positioning. The design you have actually has better boost control as the gate is after both banks merging and right before the exhaust gases hit the exhaust housing. So your turbocharger is clocked correctly from the looks of it and will exit the housing into the inner fender. For some reason guys were constantly asking for the older design so we went back to that which is the current production we run now.
