so using a tii front cover might be a little more work then im prepared for.



i am running my feed from an oil distribution block meant to run an oil cooler, my questions is would it be okay to run my return back to the distribution block, or will that not work because the oil will have to fight gravity to return to the block?



any thoughts?

ftw, the front covers all have the spot for the turbo drain, but they arent drilled on the na cars.



you could tap the oil pan too.



ideally the turbo drain is straight down, and has no restriction

i managed to get the na front cover off earlier today. I have the tii one on there now, half tourqed down waiting for the rtv to cure. also got the rats nest off while i was working on it.



this is the first step of putting everything back together! everything so far has been taking parts off and throwing them in the garage.



but im pretty sure im going to have to redo the cas, any tips? im gonna go look through the faw's section now

the CAS is the same for the 13B/13BT



you should buy the correct bung for the turbo oil return line and weld it into the oil pan

no thank you.

i have a stock TII front cover on with the stock oil return fitting and the stock return line off the turbo.



anyone have an easy way to stab the cas without the pully on? Unless the timing marks are on the hub itself i think i made an oops. took the pullys off and didnt mark the hub where the marks went, and now i have to stab the cas. someone helppp

the front pulley can only go one one way, the bolts are staggered so you cant screw it up.



FYI personally I would have just tapped the front cover for the na under the OMP and put an AN fitting in it there the drain would have been more straight down, and goes straight to the oil pan.

bascially you line up the mark on the pulley, and then stab the cas so one of the big cas teeth is centered in the little hole in the cas cover.

brilliant, i was worried because i have the pully off, but aparantly it only fits on one way, which is a relief.
