I did all the stuff for the rotated i/m but let the guys at DC auto do the front mount. Not sure how it has come out as the car is still at their shop. I feel you on the mandrel pipe, but i think they went with the cut/weld approach. which is fine by me for now. i probably wont go a rotated turbo until back in the states so ill mess with bending pipes then. btw i went with the wife hates me option(deleted a/c) and rotated the alternator to the a/c comp location.
