Oh i gotcha. I have a 90* fitting for oil feed right there under the coil pack.
I picked up some new bolts and spacers for the coil pack bracket, so I can still run that from there for the pressure!

No return fuel yet.
I won't need to unless I'm over 350whp.
I have the 2002.5 model with the newer fuel pump, so I should be good til there. If not, I'll be able to see the pressure on the gauge.

I am just got an SVT block, head and ECM. I'm planning on installing turbo, then dropping it all in my 2003 ZX3. I would really like some pointers if somebody would like to sit and talk with me?!

I got the SVT ECU yes... And I wanted the cosworth tuned head for the turbo. With the 33mm and 36mm valves and larger ports- way better for a turbo. Also higher compression for quicker spool up

Ya u can, but I get way better flow, and can make that 500 a lot easier. I'm building the bottom end too of course... I didn't really wanna argue on what head. I wanted some pointers on turbos, ic, engine management, injectors, etc.
