There's no best. You can do single back door, double back door, universal style. Or you can attempt to curve the entanks to minimize turbulence, but if it's not a race-only car, and you're not getting paid for it, you have to go with what works with that particular exhaust manifold and position of the turbocharger.

So, go with what you have available based upon your exhaust manifold, chassis, and turbocharger / wastegate position.

Your image link didn't work. Try that again.

With that said, that all depends upon the room available for where the compressor outlet can be rotated to allow for the shortest route to the inlet side of the intercooler inlet. The throttle body side usually has more room to give. Again, this is based upon your chassis and what you have available. It's very difficult to assist without detailed photos, measurements of the chassis of what's available, etc. One of those, "You have to sort of be there to help" kind of questions, ya know?

Easier to connect & use. "Better" is a relative term.

Since you are fabricating, can't you simply move the 1/2 width radiator over slightly to allow the back door of the outlet to pass through and still have room on the inlet side for the ram horn style turbo manifold ???
