Unhappy manafold help/advice

I got an ats twin turbo I was trying to install to day and ran into a problem.
This is the manifold they sent me.

It has round ports, mine are square ports.

Am I right in saying that will not work right. I thought of just buying a set of square gaskets and port matching the manifold as best as I could. And like normal my truck is torn apart and ats isn't open till Monday.

I'd wait til Monday. ..if any of the gasket deteriorates and breaks off, there goes your turbine wheel, thus causing an inbalance and then a catastrophic turbocharger failure. I personally wouldn't take a gamble like that. I see this carnage every day.

Wait and let them send you the right stuff, let them shoulder the responsibility for the outcome.

Talked to ats today and they are saying use the round manafold it makes it flow better. I thinking they are just blowing smoke and don't want to send out the right parts.
