Have you run the motor or looked at the turbo? If it is in fact backwards and was operated that way I would expect there to have been serious issues with raw water coming back into the turbo and motor.

Ran it up to temp 2 weeks ago before i had to head back up on the north slope for work. Sounded ok and fair amount of water came out the exhaust. But if the whole point of that riser is to block water from getting back to the engine,then everytime it gets shut off that last little splash would fall right back down and pool in the turbo correct? Causinh possible corrosion to the fins and maybe even the housing. So until I'm sure that it is mounted correctly I'm going to be proactive with it. I'm really not into problems on the water and trying to get it launched soon as possible after i get home in 2 weeks.

Actually that appears to me to be the wet elbow from a range 4 series Perkins.I have seen many of those. It is not original.
The original should look more like this:

By the way do you have manuals for your engine? If not e mail and I can send them in PDF format.

The original should look more like this:
I was wondering about that because on the 3rd hatch back from the bow the insulation had been scooped out all the way to the wood to accommodate that elbow and it just did not look like anything a factory would do. But as I've said before this wet exhaust stuff is all new to me. If that is not the stock riser the that would make sense to hollow out the insulation to allow for the higher riser. Just not very professional. I sent you an email for the manuals. Thank you.
