Turbo went in today along with new coolant hoses, gaskets, oil drain, and replaced the oil feed filter. Some things I noticed about this "bolt on" turbo:
Compressor outlet flange bolt holes are wrong (too close together)
Right side of the compressor housing hits the crankcase pcv
Coolant return/outlet is turned 45 degrees upward, causing fitment issues

Here are some pics before the install compared to the vf46 that its replacing.
