So the past two days I've been working on my turbo build. I got the manifold and wastegate bolted on and the bumper off so I can mount the intercooler. What I need to know is when I run the oil feed from the plug from the head behind the coilpack location do I need to use a oil restrictor? I was also wonder if someone new the threads pitch of that plug if not, not a big deal I can figure it out.

You dont have to, but some of the turbos have a problem with the High oil pressure the focus puts out. Personally I have not had a problem with this but some have.

If you plan on doing it get a .06 restrictor.

I'd recommend to get a hold of the maker of your Turbo. They'll Tell you what size restrictor to get if needed.

So it's been awhile since I've posted and my build was on hold for a bit due to bein laid off and moving back to the Seattle area from Spokane, but I got almost everything done with my build and just have to get some tuning and other this like a J&S, boost gauge, I will take some pics of everthing and post them up asap since my girl has a new camera that works better than my crappy cell phone ones. My piping has all been powder coated wrinkle black and manifold and downpipe ceramic coated satin black and just got done making the battery support brakes today that put my battery in the old air filter location. I had to use a group 26r battery for clearance, I wanted to stick to a battery that I could buy locally and have good cca for the cold months.

Looks good.
For that catch can, make sure it's a smooth route to the can or moisture will puddle in that section that is lower than the can inlet.

Today I starting making the gauge pod for the wideband and boost gauge. I'm putting the gauges in the a/c vent below the factory aux gauges since I didn't want to use and a pillar setup. I just gotta wait til friday to get my parts and then I can finish the wiring and make some mounting tabs to hold the gauge plate securely.
