Quite possible. The manifold positions the turbo up and forward quite a bit. I can't think of anything that would be an interference problem on an FD.
I've run that manifold on my old FC. Pros: Cast iron (ie, BULLETPROOF), dirt cheap (like $295 retail), works. Cons: Collected manifold (not divided), puts the turbo in kind of an awkward place, at least on the FC.
Many FC guys have made very impressive power with this manifold My old car with a 60-1 HiFi and the works made around 390 to the ground with a ****-poor tune.

The LIM on the FC's sticks out a bit more then the FD. So the turbo had to be spaced out further to clear the LIM on the FC. So the manifold puts it at more of an outward angle. Whereas the FD has a narrower set of frame rails, and the LIM is more low profile, so the FD turbos sit closer to the block (or up and forward for more runner length, in the case of the tubular manifolds).
I have personally tried to fit a FC HKS cast log style manifold with a medium sized t04 turbo and it would have hit the FD frame rail by about 1/4" to 1/2". Unless it's an on center turbine housing or quite a small turbo it won't work without mods you don't want to do.
