their are a few different designs of center sections and housings. depending on which one you have determines whether or not your going to be able to do this....

their could be a vband clamp or bolts holding the turbine housing to the center section, loosen them and rotate the housing. good luck because its likely seized on there pretty good!

have you tried pulling it straight out? Ive never had my hx35 apart, but some of them use a small pin or notch to keep the housing clocked right

no i didnt try that. i will try that tommorow! if it doesnt work it might be a excuse to buy a turbo lol what would be a good all around turbo for 400-500hp with a 9712v and a g56 six speed

Once it seats and goes through a couple heat cycles, it's on there pretty good. Mine has 4 bolts from the center section into the exhaust housing, with clamps connecting each set of 2 bolts. Loosen those bolts as much as possible, do not remove! Soak the area with penetrating oil, and hold the turbo up with the housing facing down. TAP down lightly on the housing, going all the way around. Might have to let it soak a while. Be careful to not let the housing hit the exhaust wheel, spin the shaft often. If it binds, tap housing back on to straighten. Once it loosens up you can rotate it to wherever you need it.
