I just wouldnt know how to hook up OIL lines, this is my main concern, I NEED TO FITTINGS!
I also have no idea what the nipple on the wastegate is, and where does it actually hook up to?!?!?!
Pete, there needs to be engine oil pressure fed to each turbo AND an oil drain from each turbo back to the engine sump. Typically, a hole is punched into the oil pan and a fitting is installed to accept the drain line hookup. The drain line should be as short as possible, allow gravity to draw oil away from the turbo, and be as large as possible. Oil line feeding each turbo does not have to nearly as large, -4 line size is fine. Most turbo kits use a -4 (3/8") braided line to feed oil to the turbo. Fittings are readily available at any hydraulic supply house or even at most auto supply houses, especially NAPA. I got a bunch of extra fittings if you need them too.
The nipple on the wastegate needs to hook to the turbo compressor housing so the wastegate can sense how much boost the turbo is making. Without a line hooked to the wastegate, the turbo will overrev and overboost the motor badly.
Boost will therefore be controlled by the spring force within the wastegate and the actuator rod length.
Stock headers will support your HP goals easily. Considering Incon's 800 HP twin turbo kit had 1 3/8" ID header size, making your goal of 450 HP will be a walk in the park.
You don't need a BOV just yet, so hold off on that until you get the system running good. Beef up the fuel system WELL before you run the car with boost, the stock fuel pump is woefully inadequate with boost.
How you going to configure the MAF sensor by the way? Going blow thru?
