Default Turbo to big?

I am having some issues fitting this turbo/manifold combo in my '88 hatch. Any body have any ideas?

Correct, the turbo isn't too big, you just have to turn it around. By the looks of it you'll need a new downpipe (from the pic it looks like it is setup to install the way you have it) Also, unblock the wastegate port, and start saving for a new mani.

We can also make a DP for you if you need one.

yeah i already have a downpipe and yes it is an ebay turbo and manifold. so if I can't mount it driverside dp then can I just rotate the turbo? for some reason it looks as though the oil inlet is on bottom and the exit is on top. now I know that will not work so how can I rotate the center and cold side?
