Water circulation question

i have a question on where to place an mp40 in my tank. im guessing it doesnt really matter but i rather ask and make sure. my tank is 48x18x16 tall and i have the return on the back right corner (ive added a pic). im planning on putting it on the left side facing the incoming water but wouldnt that just cause turbulence? but if i put it on the right side then theres probably gonna be a dead zone on the left side of the overflow box. any suggestins?

I probably wouldn't worry about a dead spot in a 75 gallon with an MP40!

Yea they are but very expensive too =(... I've been buying parts for this build for almost a year now and I'm in the finishing stages so I guess I might as well go all out since I've waited this long
