question about clocked turbo and wastegate linkage

so after i clocked my turbocharger, i noticed that now i need to do something about the wastegate actuator linkage, and also the mount, my idea was to only use 1 of the mounts out of (i think 3) and bend the linkage slightly so it would line up.

is this a good idea?

the point of this post is to see how other people coped with a clocked td04-15t and how they mounted they're wastegate and how they bent (and how to bend) the wastegate linkage.

pics would be sick, as i'm almost done with this swap, and i dont want to frig up my wastegate setup.

Should have just bolted up without clocking, unless you got a 6cm off of a 9000.
Where did you get this TD04?

mine is clocked because i used to have a different IC setup. I had a flange welded on another part of the housing for the WG bracket. 3 years later still no problems.
