This is driving me insane!
Yes, you can orient the block however is convenient for you. As long as the fittings don't come in contact with each other, it's fine. For my inlet, I'm using a male-male rotary coupler, Koolance Q-fitting with temp sensor and plug, with a rotary barb coming out at 90 degrees. This clears the RAM and is a straight shot into the reservoir.

The plastic 90 degree fittings are restrictive. The nickel plated brass rotary adapters (45/90) are not restrictive. They're just like mandrel bent exhaust piping that maintain the same internal diameter all the way through.
