i'm going to be installing my turbo soon and had a few questions.i don't have the directions the kit would normally come with as i bought it used.
1- where did you guys tap the oil feed into?
2- if you used an oil filter adapter for the oil feed, was the 3 foot line enough to reach the oil filter?
3- was anyone able to find a better oil return than drilling into the oil pan?
4- are there any vacuum lines i might not realize to put in?
This is my first turbo install and i want it to go smoothly so any info would help alot. thanks in advance

1. You can put a T on factory oil pressure sensor or use an adapter from nissport (http://www.nissport.com/catalog/product.asp?ProductCode=NS-2100Q&EquipmentType=Applications), located behind the block, or you can get an oil filter sandwich adapter. I personally have the nissport adapter.

2. Dunno
3. Nope
4. You'll know this if your car doesn't run right after the install :D

1. Tap the oil feed from the switch, adapters are sold for this, couldn't tell you where though.
2. I personally believe this is asking for trouble, even with the short (VQ) filter, the filter sticks out alot, too close to the wheel on tight turns.
3. I returned my oil through the pan, it has to go there to be below the oil level so gravity will drain hot oil from the turbo ( I can email you pics of my setup, can't seem to post them here.)
4. Just connect the turbo vacuum port to the wastegate, and the BOV can go on the hose that comes from behind the intake, along with your boost gauge, (this is the hose that goes to the power valve reservior.)

just wanna step in and say congrats on the turbo kit, looks like it should be a fun summer. cant wait to see the finished product!! you shouldnt have any problems with the install, the hardest part was tapping the block. other than that its all downhill/uphill how ever u wanna put it

I emailed you pics of the setup I ran, its 8 pics so give it a second to load. I personally dont like the spacer idea since the drain should be free of restrictions,and hot oil stuck in the turbo equates to bad bearings, bottom line. I'd be scared at high rpms where efficient lubrication is of priority and the turbo is trying to push oil into six quarts of resistance.
