Default modifying standard manifold to suit turbo?

any one give me an idea of where to cut to weld flange on for turbo?and do you need to put an angle on the flange to allow for turbo clearance? thanks.

are you talkin about 'offsetting' the turbo plate on the manifold and somewhat rotating the flange toward the front of the car so the turbo leaves more of a space between the engine block?
