Broken, I installed a T3/T4 last summer and I had to clock the compressor side to get it to line up. I am still using the factory intercooler and couplings as well. I could not get it to sit low enough to reuse the factory mounting brackets however, but it works fine.

I clocked mine but no luck. do not have mounting brackets. I can make it fit with a little cut and trim work.

Finally all the quirks worked out, Had to cut 3/4" off turbo snout, 1/2" off intercooler intake snout and 1 1/2" off rubber coupler in order to make hood close.

Hmmm, that looks very similar to how mine sits, can you turn your compressor housing a little more CCW to bring the outlet a little lower? Yours looks almost horizontal on the outlet, and from what I remember about my install, mine sits a little more offset. I can grab a pic this afternoon and post it for you

Tried that and it just didn't work.
