  • oil lines...not waht you think

    i know that running oil lines using engine oil are neccesary and that they gain pressure from the oil pump in the motor,
    my question is this instead of using already hot oil into the turbo can i just set up a standalone system with a seperate oil pump and cooler? since turbo heat detroys oil anyway i was thinking about runnin a seperate sytem....
    any thoughts?

    Not necessary. Just run synthetic oil and you should be good to go. I have yet to hear of anyone running into problems with their oil breaking down due to the turbo. Other than an overly rich tune of course...

      so it is easier to just run lines from the motor and the pan?
      can i put a cooler in line to or from the turbo? if so where?

        If you're that concerned about hot oil going into your turbo, then just route a seperate oil cooler, and run the line from the cooler to the turbo.

        In about a year and a half, I'm going turbo. Here's my plan for optimum oil temperatures.

        Now, keep in mind, when I set this car up like this, it is a setup that is meant to embarass the fuck out of people, so all extremes are going to be taken.

        #1. 2 oil filters: 1 before the engine, and 1 before the turbo.

        #2. 2 oil coolers: the stock position, and 1 before the turbo.

        This is not only to save money on oil, but to save money on future repairs due to the engine getting too hot.

        Just don't think for 1 second that I am spending more than 8k on this turbo project though, because it doesn't take a lot of money, to have a lot of power, just a lot of knowledge, and a lot of connections, not to mention Ebay usage will be outrageous.

            read my edit ^^

            Also, a good radiator and intercooler setup are primo, along with a good set of fans, make sure the fans are insulated between the radiator and intercooler for optimum cooling.

              what are your plans for the setup? im new to turbo's i can make made n/a owe on a v8 though lol

              im thinking of a fluidyne radiator, no ac, 2 oil coolers, safc2, stage 2 head with power cams from SDA, larger injectors with a fuel pressure reg from SPS, home bored TB, t3 turbo and with intercooler from wherever( whatever i can get cheap that fits) forged rods with hyper sumthing i think pistons bored .30 over, 2.75 exhaust and a custom turbo manifold made from a 91-92 header....
              probly missing some things but its late lol

                What kind of power are you looking for....... because, if you're not looking to do 400+ like Ian and Jeff, then you don't need quite top-end stuff.

                  well depending on reliability i want 275-300 (but turbo isnt neccesarily reliable lol)

                    Did you ever read Ian's write-up on this? It would help explain a lot, and it's 3:30 AM here, and I don't have all morning.

                      A basic setup, at 8psi will give you 220whp, and keep it very streetable, without going full engine stand alone. You're looking to go all out?

                      If you don't know anything about full engine stand alones, you need to look them up, and study this extensively before you start the project. I've been studying for 2 years, and I'm still not ready.

                            You two are nuts. 2 oil coolers? 2 filters? Why? That's unneccessary. Just do what the rest of us have been doing for years with no problems. Oil line from the back of the block to the turbo. And a drain into the pan. Then run an external oil cooler.
