I'm going to have to come by some day and check out this build. Hope to have my car running right in the middle of the week. I like those welds... want to weld a SS o2 bung onto my downpipe?

You might want to reclock the CHRA on the turbo so that the drain is facing directly down. The oil isn't under any pressure when it leaves the bearing housing, so you want the drain flange to be pretty much oriented as straight down as you can get it.

I concur. Cars always look a bit more updated and cleaner with the trim painted the same color as the car IMO.

hahah not wanting to be rude.... but i find it really funny how people keep telling me that.... like i clocked it like that on purpose....


anyways yeah thats as straight as it possibly will go cause the motor mount is in the way.... just a stupid combo of that turbo with that manifold just causes bad interference with the front motor mount....

It seems like there's room for it to point more towards the oil pan by the persepective of the photo (which may not be in all actuality). If that's the case, I would do that before pointing somewhat away from the pan first.

The drain might be OK but you really want it pointing as straight down as you possibly can. Yes th mount is in the way & just because of where the mount is located. Most of us running a larger turbo simply cut a notch in the mount to clear the drain line. It's something that's been done many times over the past 19 years without any drawbacks. I think Terry has some pictures posted, I'll try to find them.

EDIT: Found the picture

yeah must turbo and manifold combo just must be weird caues i chopped a TON off that motor mound.... like the whole right side is gone and it still wont fit.

i basically will have to make a new motor mount or find a way to move it over.... im out of town otherwise i would take better pics to show you.

which the head it leaking (valve stem seals) anyways and smoking like crazy so im prolly gonna get the head rebuilt so while the head is off is a perfect time to mess with that mount.

I had a PTE turbo on my Talon and ran into the same issue you did. Rather than notch the mount, or reclock the CHRA, I used a 45 degree fitting off the drain flange to a 45 fitting going into the line. The line then went straight into the oil pan. I know that the motor brackets are different between the 1G AWD DSM's and GVR4's, but with the mount notched already it should clear with the CHRA in the proper position.

Does the car smoke @ idle or WOT? If it's WOT, then it might be the turbo causing some of your smoking issues. The first drain line I made was made using -8 line/fittings. The line wasn't large enough and couldn't handle the amount of oil going into the bearing housing @ WOT. Oil blew past the turbo seal rings and out the exhaust making a very large smokescreen. Thought I had blown the turbo, or something in the motor. Resized the line with -10 hose/fittings and no issues afterwards. With your turbo clocked like it is, and some of the fittings you're using on your return line, it's possible you may have oil backing up in the housing causing the smoke. Just something to think about if it is smoking under boost.

I think the issue probably stems from having to go from the flange, then a male-male fitting to a big-ass 90. I think if you had a flange with the male fitting on it and a 45 degree it might clear. I just happen to have an extra turbo oil outlet flange here. I'm heading out of town, but when I get back maybe we can figure that part out.

well been a while since i updated... went wit a diff turbo and wastegate and have been waiting on parts and stuff...

so this was the old setup...



manifold sucked balls and was nothing but headaches from day one.... so i ordered a cheap tubular manifold....

it also didn't fit worth a crap so i said f it... chop that sucka up....



cut the flange off it...



then since it was a cheap mani it didn't have a external waste-gate port so i made one....

started by cuttin a whole in the collector...



then welded on a pipe and a flange i made for the wastegate....



also figured why not so i added some support bars to keep the welds from cracking from the weight.



also re-did my down pipe for the third time to work wit this new manifold....

got the windows tinted too which made it look was better... gotta take some pics.
