Line goes from oil distribution on block by power steering pump where the oil sending unit is, both return and feed line go onto turbo housing top and bottom, and most people use Vortech's instructions for tapping the oil pan from their websight.
Make sure you upgrade your oil drainback hose to something better than what comes with the kit and use better clamps as well. Also, I found the fittings for tapping into the oil pressure port were not the correct size. One quick trip to the parts store fixed both issues easily.
Where exactly do I run the supply. I was looking around down there when i had to remove my sway bar and seen nothing that had to do with oil around that area. Other than the lines for the power steering itself.
I would post pics of it but I need new header bolts because the factory's wont work. I know u never reuse stuff but i was trying to save money.
Trying to use the kit itself plus money i got from the swap for the extra parts and its not working out that way.
No i didnt buy mine new as they dont make them anymore. The only thing i need is new header bolts. A new turbo gasket. A oil return line, and tap for oil pan. and thats it. and of course the 90 from the tubbing from fender to the tb.
Well. I made some prgress this weekend. I manage to get the intercooler mounted with some custom brackets from lowes. But she sits a tad low and imma need to trim the bootom side of my bumper. Nothing to major just the flimsy vented part on the bottom inbetween the bottom lip and the gap. Hard to explain ill post pics this afternoon after work.
Also went looking for some header bolts. Let me say these headers for the turbo kit are bent in so many odd ways I cant tighten any of them down.
Also I went to advance and autozone to try and look for a fiiting to T from. where the oil pressure sensor is. Where i was told to t from and no one had any such T that i could use. Help here to plz. Also it looks like its gonna be a snug fit between my power steering and the oil pressure sensor with a T plus the oil pressure thing ontop.
Will post pics of the header bolt problem and the oil T problem.
Help with the T and bolts would be appreciated. Also im not gonna spend the 60 on the stage 8 locking bolts from ford racing because there to short. I need 1inch bolts.
As mentioned above 1" B.ig B.lock C.hevy bolts will work fine. 12 point head and a combo wrench should take care of the tightening.
For the oil pressure tee. The one you'll get from the places you have mentioned will be brass and have all female threads. Meaning you screw something into them. You will need to get a "pipe bushing". It will be a brass tube with male threads on both ends. Screw the bushing into the block, screw the tee onto the bushing. Be very careful with the pipe tape, dont clogg anything. The oil p.s.i.sending unit will end up fitting where it fits...do what you can to keep it away from heat.
Hi guys. I'm building my first turbo car. My intent is to turbo a bone stock '94 GT minus emissions equipment. I'll be installing a larger in take pump, blow thru MAF and 80lb injectors. I've read and heard that I should run head studs and better valve springs in the E7 heads. I've also read...
