Turbo help!!!

I'm hooking up a turbo on my 94 ZJ 318. Was just wondering, where is the best place to hook up the oil lines? Thanks.

Oil psi sender for supply. Are you using a turbowerx oil pump or going gravity drain? If the latter then you want nothing less than 10an and you need to dump below the turbo and above the oil level in the pan.

Well I'll be hooking the turbo up where the cat currently is. Might Go with the pump and router it to the oil pan?

How do you plan on tuning it? What fuel and spark mapping tables are you going to use? Are you going to run sd 1,2 , or 3 bar? What iat are you expecting and what counter measures are putting in place to avoid detonation?

I can't answer a question, but I'd recommend messaging TurboTPI on the forum, he currently has a turbo set up on his I6 and seems to be quite knowledgeable. I'm not saying everyone here isn't knowledgeable, just saying he'd be a great resource.

Good luck, I'd love to see it implemented, step by step so all of us can start picking up parts and bug you for help! Haha.

I'm not quite the best when it comes to turbos. I'm just going to kinda play it by ear. + I have no clue on how to tune the dam obd 1 in my 94 haha. I know how to hook everything up, but i'm just stuck on the oil feed. I do have every bolt on item possible + upgraded comp cam, but I just figured 15 - 20 LBs of boost will add an extra ooph lol.
