Well as you can see the oil feed and return are not vertical.. Would it still drain correctly?

NO drain is gravity feed.
if you loosen both sides of the center you can rotate it correctly.

you can put it at an angle but not that extreme. get some vice-grips and get them super tight on the bolts, that should to the trick. once they are loose, might as well take them out and go to your local hardware store and get replacements

damn nice setup BTW!! :TU:

if you remove the bolt heads witha grinder you can just pull the housing off, then use the vicegrips to backthe studs left out.

Thats what im gona do, vise grisp wont fit around the center sections bolts. Im gona cut the the bolt heads off with a dremel cutoff disk and then use vicegrips to remove the stud after i torch it. Then get a couple of bolts out of the turbo on a valvo or saab at the junkyard.
