Need fab ideas/help

Hello all.
So I'm going single turbo precision 6262 on an older ss turblown long runner manifold and wanted to mate it up to my M2 air box. We'll we did some test fitting and found the turbo sits at an angle and can't just run a coupler from the turbo inlet to the back of the m2 box. So I'm looking for ideas on how to make this work. I can fab up a new back plate for the air box but need some ideas first.
Thanks

If you can make a new back plate then could you just have the rear pipe come off at an angle aligning the centrelines so you could use a reducing bend?

You just need to make a new back plate, done it before with a bunch of pie cuts on the turbo inlet pipe.

Not to revive this thread but how is the precision 6262 working for you? I'm doing the same and I'm worried about meeting my power goal, what you making by chance??

The turbos are garbage except for a few runs down a drag strip and a dyno flogging. Expect lifespan to be non-OEM. I'd suggest BorgWarner or Garrett instead.
