On My Garret T3, it seems that I should be able to alter the position of the inlet and exhaust housings relative to each other. Any tips, tricks, limitations I should know?

Yes, you can rotate the housings. You are exactly correct. Make sure you end up with the oil feed directly on top and return on the bottom. You will probably need to rotate both housings to do this. Turbos are made for that. The hardest part is getting the wastegate line up right (assuming an internal wastegate).

By the way, I found a new BMW place in the UK that advertises turbo kits for 4 cylinder E30 BMW's. I think they are talking about the twin cam engine from 1991 and up but not sure. Their link is http://www.tdi-plc.com/bmwE30316_318.html.
