I wasn't clear about this. I re-used the oil supply line and drain line. Stinger sells a drain line kit but they couldn't tell me if it would fit with the Gnari. The OEM supply line just needs to be reshaped with a tubing bender. I believe the drain line required flanged bolts to help apply even pressure to the fitting because the fitting face was a bit smaller than what the turbo wanted. No leaks.

Here's my 4 cent's



Some Ebay turbo's work good and some don't, all depends if you drive your car like you stole it LOL. I call it my China Rose.

I now run a 63a/r T3T4 Garret 5 bolt turbo which works great on my combo at high boost.

Here's how I ran my breather hoses from the block and valve cover to the intake.

I've seen a post or two on Facebook in the different groups who say they are using Big Rs T3 50 trim and they are loving it. There was no details on the install or anything, but I can't imagine a guy like him that supports the platform so much sell something that's crap to ruin his name!

I plan on buying one of them sometime next year, but first I'm going to try out one of his Ranger X regrinds with some Boport drop in springs.

Iv seen a few people that daily his turbos with no issues on a few Facebook groups when I had Facebook. Just putting everything together in my head before i think about upgrades. main thing is if I really need a stand alone system for my minimum power gain goals im looking to reach. Digging around old posts really helps me get a grasp on things.

Jake,
I noticed you have a dipstick in the fender well, you have one of those dry sump oil reservoirs in there?

No dry sump, at one time I kept blowing the dipstick out so I just use a fuel hose with a bolt in the end wedged up under the vacuum tree. Every time I take it in for Inspection the guy can't find the tube to check the oil level LOL
