yea I should have titled this one better. This thread was originally to find out what the length of the oil feed was.lol. I was gonna wait to start one once I got everything but might as well go ahead and do it. I will post a link on the first page as soon as I get it going.
Hey also had some questions for you. For the water lines, what size were the T connectors you used to tap into the lines? And I am wondering about the pcv valve, was thinking about doing what you did until I get pcv delete from topspeed. You just vented yours right?

The package says says 3/4x3/4x3/8. When I install my GT2871R soon I plan on switching to brass fittings which I just bought from HERE
Hopefully the dimensions hold true.

Yes just gut the PCV like I did. Hard to beat a free and functional mod. And yes I dump it and the valve cover to just behind the crossmember.

I'm glad I did that crazy long writeup in my first build. I find myself referencing it!

yeah, it looks a little tight on the intake side. are you running a blow though setup? if so you can just get a really small filter to protect the compressor if you can't fit tubing for a proper intake.

Yea I'm doing blow through. It really wasn't that bad the only thing in the way really is that black piece of metal. But that was just a spot for one of o2 sensor wires to sit on with a plastic piece. So I can easily bend it out of the way. I need to see if I want to run short or get a 90 and run it straight up and out to the spot of the old air box. Much still to debate.

You can't beat that for the brass fittings. I think I will definitely go that route. Now for the PCV and the valve cover, I can run that to a catch can correct?

Sure you can run it to a catch can. I personally like it dumped. It's the perfect early-warning system for excessive blow-by.

So I just run a hose from them down to the bottom of the car? Seems simple enough. When I had my eclipse we just used to run a breather off the valve cover.

You could also do breathers. I prefer the oily odor to vent behind me instead of getting sucked into the hvac and blown into the cabin.

Very valid point sir. Also for wideband I don't really need the gauge right. I can just do the cables and do the fire wire to the sct? Hard enough finding gauge placement for my gen. Besides if I really want a gauge I can just buy one later. Want to make sure on this before I buy the wrong thing.

Probably just going to buy one regardless. Just wondered about it. I want to do something like what PSUrivie did with his under the single din.
