IPR Valve connection orientation matter?

In the middle of doing major surgery. I have replaced the 3 o-ringa and screen on the IPR valve. Reinstalling the valve and the electrical connection is about 45* off (after torqued to spec) from where it was on removal. The connector was facing down and forward maybe 15 degrees, now it is close to straight up in the air. (installed a new HPOP pump so maybe the threads start in a different place???)
What gives?
Does it matter where the plug ends up on roatation?


Any light you could shed upon this problem would be greatly appreciated.

Plug orientation should not matter as long as the wires aren't in a tight kink. This could put strain on them and break later with heat and vibration.

Thank you for the answer.
I guess my concern would be that the new orientation would move the plastic connector closer to the heat source (turbo and exhaust).

Someone over at another forum suggested that the connection can be turned to whatever orientation you wanted. Is this right because I can not move the orientation on my sensor.
I am concerned about the heat factor getting to the wiring and the plastic the connector is made of. The best pic I could get showing it is below:

The body of the sensor WILL spin to orient that connector, if given a little OOMPH. Had a few guys on FTE straighten me out and send me on the right path.
Posting in case someone else has the same problem, and uses the search.

And I guess I would be one of them.
