Hey guys, i'm just finishing up my turbo II swap into my s3, and i need to make sure that i have propper oil pressure before i go driving it.



My S3 guage doesnt register anything at all as far as oil pressure.



So i'm wondering how to make sure i have appropriate oil pressure before i go drive it??



I've heard to take the oil send line to the turbo apart and see if oil comes out?? How much should come out?





Also, I'm wondering how to install an aftermarket guage?



Thanks guys

Geoff, just get a Racing Beat oil filter pedestal and run a aftermarket guage.I wouldn't trust the old stocker that much.If you are looking at a guage let me know I have oil temp and oil pressure guages I am looking to sell.
