Garrett GT2860rs setup issues

Apologies if this is a dumb question, but this is my first turbo setup and I wanted to make sure that I don’t stuff anything up.

I started setting up my Garrett GT2860rs on the weekend and ran into a problem.

The turbo came in a high mount configuration. When I rotated the compressor and turbine housings to suit my low mount DTS manifold, I had to flip the bracket for the waste gate actuator to clear the compressor outlet.
Now the actuator arm is 20-30mm short Turbo :: Turbo.jpg picture by jbegq - Photobucket
Are there longer push arm ends, I can buy?

Is there anything, I’m missing?

Cheers
Joachim

Just cut and weld and add extra bits to make it whatever shape you like... mine is a bit of an abortion but it works, as long as it holds the wastegate shut as well, you won't have any issues.

just make sure it has a bit of pre load on the waste gate or it wont hold boost properly

Thanks for the responses guys. I just wanted to be 100% sure that I wasn't missing something (which happens every now and then). I also came across these people who sell actuator rods which suit:

If everything goes well, I'll get the turbo in this weekend.
