So that can pretty much go anywhere that will always get oil, like the drain plug for instance?

Turbocharging has already racked my brain!

no, it needs to be pressurized oil. There's an area you can hook right into near the oil filter.

not really, i'm not even sure if that's the only place you can do it, it seems a little far from where the turbo would be.

I know, this whole thing has made me lost so many times! This time, I was asking about the optimum place for the FEED line!

That looks perfect. Where can I purchase one of those adapters, or is that one OE? What is the size of that? Specifics on it? Best way to tap it?

so what you are saying is that oil is under pressure as it enters the bearing in the turbo/sc, but on exiting is no longer under pressure? wouldn't the pressure from the feed line pressurize the return and push the oil into the pan?

No offense, but are you building a turbo kit and can't figure out how to plumb an oil feed line like that? I certainly hope you are getting some outside help on this. Not saying I could do that, but I wouldn't take a turbo kit on by myself either.

You should find a local shop, an import shop might be better (hondas, toyotas, nissans, etc) since there are more turbos run on those cars, and see if they can help you with the hardware side of this. From the DA turbo page you need a bango bolt that is pretty long, and two of those connectors for it.

Hey none taken. I have my kit fully done and wanted to know as much about the install process, even though I will most likely NOT be doing it myself. I like to know what is going on with my car, if I am hands on or not. I just want to make sure that I know where everythig goes, and how it works.

My kit has been tried and tested by a very reputable member on the boards, so I am fully confident in it!

Oh ok, completely gotcha there. Even if I take my stuff to a mechanic I try to learn what hes doing so I can watch it to, I just had this bad feeling that it was a DIY (I've watched friends waste thousands this way) and you were going to end up in a bad situation if something went wrong.

GL with it all, its pretty well over my head
