The only turbocharger orientation that is important is the center section.
It is best if the oil feed is on top and the oil return is facing down.

The double slip collectors DO NOT get welded. The primary pipes simply slide into place and are allowed to contract and expand and move around without having welds to stress and eventually fail.

See half way down the page.

Crazy so that little piece doesn't get welded to the collector, or the pipe coming up to the collector? The pipes just slip into that little sleeve? Does the oil feed need to be perfectly vertical it is definitely coming in from the top but it is at a little angle maybe 15° to 20°. Which then makes it so the coolant isn't flowing completely level across the turbo. Is all that ok? I was told that for longevity of turbo you want the shaft horizontal to the ground? How exact should that be?Also I am about to order the fuel pump, fuel regulator and the intercooler. Are these all still correct for this set up? Or do I want to max out inter cooler? I could definitely go taller and could go to right round 30 inches total width.

The oil return can be at a small angle. The object is to allow gravity to drain the oil out of the center bearing area.
I'm not sure how important it is to have the turbo shaft parallel with the ground with ceramic bearings that also provide thrust support.

Fuel pump and regulator are good.

Go for the biggest intercooler possible.

Dang it i forgot the side view sorry. But we got it moved to where I think it's going to live!!! You can barely tell from these pictures but we moved it quite a bit. I Ordered the pump and reg and I will check on intercooler size one more time and then hopefully order one of those too.

Got the side view. So can you see how when my hands aren't holding it the turbo isn't level aka in the correct position. Because of the heims it still doesn't hang perfect. It takes a couple pounds up on the compressor side is the easiest way to level it, Or like in the pic you can push up opposite of the flange too. So Should i build the header next to support it? I was also thinking I could build the intake to the compressor side out of aluminium and mount it to the motor on the other side before I build the header? The aluminium mount wouldn't have any heims but all in all would not be very stiff then I was thinking of building the aluminium tubing to the intercooler. The intercooler would be hard mounted to the frame not the motor so the tubing would have to be somewhat flexible but also might almost be stiff enough to support the turbo so it hangs more level. You could even have the exhaust put on and hung cause it would be mounted to the frame with thick pieces of rubber also providing support but still very flexible. Do all of this before I build the header? I'm just not familiar with the double slip joints and how well this header is going to hold the Turbo. Or just go for header lol? Thanks for reading all this you guys and for all your help !!!!!! I couldn't of done it without you. There is just so many unknowns and so many start over/redo moments that I'd like to not mess this header thing up.

Header next.
The way it should work is, the header will hold the turbo upright and level especially with six pipes attached to the collector.
The six primary pipes will approach the collector at different angles so the collector cannot be removed from the pipes or move period even with slip joints.
The hanger with the Heims only has to take the weight of the turbo off the end of the header and nothing else.

To help with flex you use silicone rubber tubing between the aluminum tubing coming from the frame mounted intercooler and the engine mounted turbo.
They come in straight, elbow, reducer and other shapes and sizes.
