As long as both of the ports still line up correctly it shouldn't matter which way it faces.

If you flip the IAC valve, there's a good chance that your idle will shoot thru the roof. I had that problem on my Thunderbird TC when I replaced it. Being a master mechanic (that's sarcasm), I just put it on without reading the directions. After removing it about 6 times I found the slip of paper that said in big letters "Install in the opposite direction as OEM". Damn........So in short: It will mess your idle up since there will be no plunger to re-direct the air as needed and your idle will run upwards of 3k.
