Im in the process of piecing together a turbo kit to boost my 05 RSX type s. I bought a boost junkyz sidewinder manifold with a open T4 flange and a 60MM wastegate flange. The WG flange is on the bottom of the manifold and after mocking it up the WG(tial) sits extremely close to the block where the tranny bolts up. I’m worried it’s gonna hit the case of the tranny or the housing for the diff. Original motor and trans are still in the car so I have no way of telling until it’s out. Just curious if anyone else has ran a boost junkyz manifold with the wastegate flange on the bottom, or a similar setup

I've never known anyone to run that manifold but I know people who have run twin scrolls with dual wastegates (one on top and one on bottom) with no issues. Turbo's in general don't leave a lot of room for clearance and 60mm wg is big. Most people I know have ran 44's. You should be fine.
