Turbo Oil Return and pick up

Post by 00Neon RCR » Sat Jun 04, 2011 2:29 pm

Hey So I've done some searching here In search of what size fittings I should use for my turbo's oil return. I have yet to drill a hole in my pan yet. However take into consideration I will need to be able to access these fittings at my local store (Princess Auto, etc).

Now, the oil pickup... my original route was going to be going through the oil pressure switch. That being said I've read on the other .org of guys having problems with oil pressure or something and decide to tap into the head. What is the best route.


Thanks

if this is for a 2.0 get you oil feed from the head. Drain size kinda depends on the turbo but generally I would go with a -10. There should be no restriction at all in the drain.

Where in the head would you tap in for the 2.0?

you do realize that if you didnt want to tap into the oil pressure sensor, you could buy an oil filter adapter with the little fitting already on it and have the feed come off of that? lol

R/tguy02 is selling one right now on here, buy his. :thumbup:

I just finished putting a turbo on a 2.0 OhNoa2.0. You take of the oil pressure sender, put a street t fitting in there, put the pressure sender going straight back and then attach your oil feed line to the top of the street t and run it to the turbo. I can't remember the size fitting off the top of my head though sorry.

What if you already had the T done with an oil psi sender. Do the make a 4 way adapter? I have never seen one if they do.

i realize this is old, but i'm bored. and since this last question never got answered...

but a tee would be better. there isn't a need for the dummy light if you have an oil pressure gauge. just take out the pressure switch and put in your oil feed for your turbo
