Tom, I'll use clear tube while it's on the stand.... and I purchased a couple of 12 volt scavenge pumps...

As well as a 1" Blowoff valve

I agree about the BOV, especially because its a smaller turbo and is going to spool quick. If its anything like the 1.8t vws, it could spike 15psi unexpectedly.

Remember... I've adjusted the Bypass valve controller to start opening at 5 psi... so I should never see anything that high...

Just keep an eye on it Matt. Id hate to see you go through all this for a short lived experiment. The wastegate can only dump so much exhaust.

Since this car seldom sees 3,000 rpm in normal driving I'm expecting things will be easy to control!! gg

And since the Turbo is a $100 unit.... and Complet Cartridge with wheels is $70 .. I can play!

Is that a primary/secondary modified Weber or both together as per stock?

Exhaust welded.... trial fit is good...

While looking for a fitting for the oil in to AN-4 came across several of these.... Fitting with orifice! Seems the K03 /4's have over oiling problems!!

$18 shipped.... not worth my time to make...

Parts are coming in...so I blew out the exhaust system before re-installing the turbo.... the 1-1/2" inlet pipe makes for great exhaust velocity!

I was watcher number 1 on that video. I was wondering if that was the engine you were turboing. Looks good. Sounds great!

Sure... not hurt... when it had the valve hitting the piston...bet it was driven...as Sanman1st put over 500 on it before he pulled it. Wasn't hurt then either... 3-4 owners... over 5 years.... they all threw $$ at the problem...

Have the nice close 90 2-1/2" pipe now and a T4 blanket for it...

More parts end of the week....

Matt did you think about a closed loop oil system for that turbo? Since its all going to be mounted outside of the engine bay I wonder if a separate oil system would continue to lower engine temps? Or maybe the work isn't worth the reward. Just wondering.

How is that filter going to fit, on the turbo, when you install the engine in the car?

Looks like it will hit the front surrounds at the firewall. Or do you have room to cut a hole in the shroud?

I'm not familiar with the lM engine compartment.
