to rotate the compressor side cover part, there are like 6 bolts that hold brackets, 2 bolts per bracket, and u have to just loosen them, and then the compressor side is easily spun to whatever desired angle

no seals

its the compressor side of the turbo, but the bolts face the exhaust side. sometimes the bolts will hit something and you'll need to take them out one at a time and get them past the spot where they hit and put em back in.

Highly recommend to dont take more than 1 bolt out at a time. You dont want the housing to move and damage your compressor.

Dont take them out at all if at all possible, just break them loose, spin it, and tighten them back up.
