    Turbo Oil feed return and coolant lines

    okay guys im Finally starting my project for my turbo i have all the pieces i just need some info. i know that the oil feed to the turbo needs to have pressure to get there how ever i do not want to tap my engine block to get it i was wondering if this would work and provide enough pressure to fufil the turbo needs. http://www.jcwhitney.com/autoparts/P...1+1995/c-10114
    seems to be a good idea but i wanted all your expert ideas. also if you could anyone with a 3100 turbo show me how you hooked up the turbo coolant lines as well. Sorry for the spelling its late and i want to go to bed.

    1/2" is probably too big.

    just run the oil supply line from the same place that the TGP engine uses. on the block right next to the oil filter - my 3.1 had a small plug there; i just took it out and put the line on. my 3400 has the plug there too so i'm assuming the 3100 does as well. i'm not sure about how you'd do the coolant supply/return lines but shouldn't be too hard. you might check over on v6z24.com or domesticcrew.com

    I ran my feed using a street T from the oil pressure sensor.
    My return is welded into the top of the oil pan.

    is there anywhere i can put in a return line without tapping the pan. because in order to take my pan off that involves alot of time and same with labor costs. what if i did the feed from the whole by the oil filter and then the return going back to one end of this http://www.jcwhitney.com/autoparts/P...1+1995/c-10114
    with the feed end blocked off on the cooler.

    Nahhhh, using a hole in the pan is the best method. You can easily weld a fitting into the pan, you wouldn't even have to take off the pan..... plus you can make it "quick-connect" so it won't make pulling the pan any hardr if you do have to

    There are a few kits out there for no welding oil fittings for the pan. They can be done with the pan in the car. Mine was welded and was still done with the pan in the car.

    so your saying that if i go to a shop and tell them i need a oilreturn fitting welded to my oil pan they can do it with out having to drop the motor just to get the pan off. how much about would you guess this job would cost?

    Well it depends on the shop, you may get a nice guy and he only wants $40... then again they might say $150. You just have to tell them what you want and see what they say. If you got a buddy with a welder maybe he can help you. I don't think its an exact science and there are plenty of acceptable ways to approach it. Your best bet would be going to a local shop known for doing work on hot rods and custom stuff.

    Or you could buy a new pan and have a fitting welded in. Then change pans when you have everything else ready.
