Really just looking for a cheap rotated setup using my TMIC to clean up the engine bay.
You will definitely need a rotated down pipe fabbed up if you are going with the adapter. If you look closely at the IWSTI thread you will see that you can ask for an EWG provision as part of the adapter. Using an adapter is not for everyone though, I decided to use it because I was going to be doing some simple fabrication anyway. I'm also not positive the adater would get the turbo low enough for a tmic. The perrin up-pipe seems to keep the turbo the lowest. Here is a picture of the EWG adapter for reference:
