Cleaning VGT Turbo Question

I have followed a couple threads and pulled my turbo out to clean. Question to verify, does anyone know what orientation the valve for the veins needs to be in when connecting the housing to the turbo?

I had mine about 3/4 of the way to full clockwise. I put the ring on the the valve pin, counted the slots over to the locating pin. Took the ring off and flipped it over to install on the veins ensuring the 4th slot was lined up with the locating pin. I also made sure the valve pin engaged before the the turbo was seated on the locating pin. It should drop right in with a little movement side to side. I lightly tapped the two halves together with a 2x4 and hammer just to be sure. But make sure it's pretty much all the way seated before you do that.

It looks like it sucks but it comes out pretty easy. It's got some weight to it though. I've got pretty small hands they say and I had a little trouble getting the back mounting bolts so I don't know how the big guys can get their hands back there.

Yeah, it takes a little time (2-3) hours to get it completely torn down, had to use a stubby 3/8" ratchet to get the back bolts loose. Doing a Sinister EGR delete and up pipe along w/ had the intake hot tanked and oil cooler.

You do not need to just to remove the turbo, however we did remove ours so that we can add the new up pipe from Sinister. those were kind of a pain to get the bolts out.
