    Ok, i've been searching the forums for ideas and hints before I posted. Still coming up
    with some questions. 2000 GT stock just a HV3 at the moment. I do have a spare trans
    from my GTP that I recently scrapped. Planning a rebuild on it for the spring.

    I have the turbo, 42# injectors, 1.8 RR's, 38mm wastegate so far. The crossover I'm
    having custom made from and should be wrapped up tomorrow. Looking at the wastegate
    perch from ZZP as well as the Oiling kit unless I can grab one from ebay and not need TOO
    many additional pieces. Intercooler/bov/ manual boost controller as well from ebay within the
    month. DP I'll figure some out pending how this crossover comes out.

    Anyway.. so my questions are with the oil feed, if no ZZP kit from where do I run it from.
    Does some need to be drilled and tapped? Or is there an in-line fitting that I could grab
    in order to work. In the event that the turbo is too close or touching the TB could I utilize
    a L26 intake to avoid this from happening. Also, is there a write up somewhere that
    explains the F-intake conversation, because on first search I have not found it.

    Just looking to put something together that can keep up when my buddies and I meet up.
    Maybe in the 400 hp range. If it managed to pull 12's I wouldnt be upset. Nothing insane
    , tell me if I'm crazy or not. Thanks in advance.

    The oil pressure switch in these cars is more like a dummy switch and when that comes on, the engine is already toast.

    So with that said you could use that port on the oil filter housing for the feed line on the turbo.

    Ok, so the best line kit to purchase is the zzp?
    How bout the UIM, i believe that the crossover doesnt leave much
    room to mount the turbo up. So i may have to go with the f-body
    intake. How does that conversion go, or is there a write-up?

    I agree, its gonna be a pita. Weather depending I'll bolt it up tomorrow just to
    get an idea.

    Far as the 42's, I just got my ECU back from Intense, so I'll try it out and hopfully
    it's runs when everything is back together. Also, bought the replacement
    pushrods for the 1.8RR's, so i have plenty of work ahead of me.

    I figured the f-body route is going to be the move, so
    I found one at the yard this weekend. Might as well
    bolt up the crossover and get busy.

    Had to re-clock it as the hood would not close on first testing

    Got my valve cover gaskets and rocker kit, gonna try and play with that
    sometimes this week, weather depending.

    Goodluck on your super tight custom downpipe! Fbody intake wont fix that, 3800 turbos its a straight shot back then down, they go under the master cylinder.

    Yea that downpipe is gonna be a pain, but i'll run an open dump under the damn
    thing. My daily is my Optima, so she'll only come out for occasional runs maybe the
    track once i swap the trans out.
