I been talking to a couple of my dsm buddys and they have been telling me its not good to run your oil feed line to your turbo from the head. I have a fully built 6 bolt with a garrett gt35r turbo and ran it from the head and it blew up. Im getting a new one and wanted some opinions which is best to run you oil feed line from the head, sandwich plate, oil pan. I dont want another blown turbo.
Is this turbo a ball bearing? Alot of people that do run bb turbos will install an inline filter to keep that oil clean it is crucial with a bb. I am going to be upgrading mine shortly with an SS braided off the oil filter housing. I guess it all depends on what you want to do with it personally. Oh an i almost forgot never use your old oil feed lines always get a new one with a new turbo, but i am sure you knew that :thumb:
Well i would reccomend going off your oil filter housing just about everyone ends up doing this upgrade eventually. I know you can buy a kit off the many vendors on this site just look for SS Oil line kit, I know it should come with a fitting an the line. Good luck with the car :hellyeah:

The reason why alot of people go with this option is because it allows full oil flow with high pressure!
I also found a walkthrough of how to do it if you end up taking this route :thumb:
