Pulled some pictures from my post in the other thread.

Front to back is fine turbowise. If you are putting in a 3 in hard inlet, clearance has always been an issue with TGV's, also had to bend a PCV hard pipe coming from the block for clearance around the inlet. I don't have them and it was still a tight fit. Consider a silicone inlet for an easier installation. The only issues I ran into were the coolant feed line on the top needs to be bent downwards about a 1/2 to an inch away from the TMIC. The Oil feed line connection from the block needs to be bent towards the head about 3/4 to an inch. The nipple for the wastegate actuator points downward in an awkward spot so be sure to attach your vacuum line before you install it.
