Need turbo install info

I'm in the process of pulling parts together and installing a turbo in my zx3. I looked in the how-to library and didnt see a turbo install thread. I'm looking for some info/ tips on installing a turbo. I rather have people here tell me how they installed it so i'm not stressin out as bad in my garage in the dead of summer. Any info would be great. Thanks

need turbo install info

I'm looking for a how-to thread on a zx3 turbo install. I've done turbos before just not on a ford. Any help would be great. Reason i'm asking is because i rather learn from other peoples mistakes etc instead of me finding out and gettin screwed. I just need some info about where is the best oil inlet location and where is the best location on the oil pan for the outlet. Also where does the vacuum line hook into to coming off the bov?

While i'm at it...anyone have a turbo manifold for sale with or without the wastegate?

Thanks

for the roush turbo kit here is where you get the oil feed and where it is returned.
the oil feed is tee'd in with the sending unit. for the feed there is also a alen bolt beside the sending unit that will also work. it is what i used for my oil pressure gauge, you can also see it in this picture. and i think there is one under the coil pack also.

the oil returned is tapped into the aluminum crank case. most people use a bung that is welded onto the top of the oil pan instead of tapping like this.



if you need any other pics or any thing let me know. i have tons of pics. i got a new digital camera right before i done the install so i went crazy taking pics. lol
