So my garage came pre-wired with a pull of Romex 6/3, in a 2-Gang Box. (Photo Attached)
So, I could put a 14-50 plug in..but the local electric company offers $500 rebate for a Tesla wall charger (so basically, I'd be getting it free)
My question is..does the Tesla Wall charger line up with a 2-Gang box screws? (ie: I could just remove the faceplate and mount the TWC directly in it's place.
Thanks in advance!

I can't answer your specific question, but if what you suggest won't work, you can do like the guy in this video and wire a dryer cord into the Wall Connector and plug it into the 14-50 outlet.

OK, what I think I need to do, is get some conduit, to have the cable come out of the faceplate; then mount the TWC on the stud next to it, and run it up through the bottom of the TWC.

I don't think you need any conduit at all. Just mount the Wall Charger onto the stud that this box is attached to.

See this screen capture from the installation instructions.

Yup; I just measured that just a few minutes ago. Mounting in left holes and running conduit in lower right back corner.
Liiiike a glove!
Why do you insist on running conduit? Just mount the wall connector to the stud with that hole OVER the existing electrical box. Runs wires in through hole. Connect. Done.
