yes, but this is a ots vmount, you could always bend up a piece of aluminium to fill the gap.

Another variation on the Process West Vmount
Shows transmission cooler (for the Modena sequential 6 speed)
and engine oil cooler.

This currently (by far) the fastest Time Attack Subaru in Australia

I agree, but I think that setup is designed to accept the factory ac condenser which would probably fill the gap if it was installed.

I've seen some people who rotate their manifolds but don't move over their alternator. I'm thinking it is because of wanting to keep ac. Are people getting aftermarket ac condensers then? Can anyone refer me to some?

Im thinking TurboXS's rotated uppipe would be easy enough to modify for this style kit, as it already sits high and flat in the bay:

FAT makes kits that turn the turbo that direction.

^Surprising that they would go through that much effort to fabricate that manifold only to have it facing the rear...

Possibly the fact that the filter would be more subject to getting soaked by rain in that setup. Aside from that I'm still curious as to what's the best method for streets cars be it the MAF before or after the turbo, MAP only, custom tune with stock ECU, or stand-alone. What's the desired/common setup?

Looks like you could flip just the center part, instead of the whole thing.
