    I just got the new turbo today that I ordered. The oil drain flange is on the same side as the turbine inlet flange. Do I just loosen the nuts around the turbine housing and rotate the center section? I've never messed with a turbo like this, never had to yet. I dont want to mess up a turbo that I havent even used yet :lol:

    TIA :)

    OK, cool. Another quickie, I can do the same with the Compressor housing too then right? ALSO, When I do that, do I do the ones that connect the center cartridge to the housing or the outside housing cover bolts?

    I want to spin the center section 180 degrees and then spin the compressor housing so the outlet points down. Which bolts do I loosen or remove?
