Default Intake Manifold Switch?

I see on forums and pictures on websites that people have their manifold turned around like so...

does anyone know if you can use your stock manifold and just turn it around or do they make a special manifold for it?

It is stock. That is a reverse intake manifold set up. It provides less intercooler piping when going front mount.

Is it just me, or is the alternator on the opposite side of the motor also?

The alternator was relocated in that set up for the piping to the throttle body to fit. Otherwise the alternator would be right in the middle.

thats what threw me off. do they use the same alternator mount and one of the a/c mounts to tension it or is there a mount to buy?

I'm curious, why do you want to run a reverse manifold setup?
