Default Feeding oil to my turbo (BBC)

Did the search thing and nothing conclusive, can I use the front port on the drivers side or the one next to it on the side of the block to feed my turbo. Having some clearance issues so looking at every option.

Also if I tee it and hook up my oil pressure gauge is it gonna take oil volume away from the line going to the turbo or use a dedicated port for it (which one). I will be running -4 to both the turbo and gauge.

Any other options or recommendations would be great, this is a standard BBC.

Thanks,
Jake.

not sure on a chevy but my sbf has two -4 lines one for gauge one for turbo coming out of one 1/2" npt hole in the driverside front. gauge wont take away volume because it just dead heads the oil to the guage. not like its flowing ect

91 Garret thumper done by Precision years ago. Do you guys know what size the fitting would be, I think the front port is 1/4" npt not totally sure and what size is the one on the side of the block next to the front port and above oil filter.

I'll prob feed the turbo with front or side port and feed the gauge above oil filter port yes or no ?

I would feed the turbo straight above the filter..... its filtered oil and rite off the pump....... the other ports are feeding the engine requirements....... i would use those for the gauge...

That's the port I use as well. The feed is on a T with the oil pressure sensor on the other end of the T.

Would you care to share a pic of how you have this setup?

Could you tee into the filtered feed for a twin setup or use one port for each turbo?

You could tee into it for both. I don't have a pic, but I'll take one of the fitting this evening.

Default Re: Feeding oil to my turbo (BBC)

Thanks a bunch guys, so I'll just feed the turbo from above the filter and the gauge from the front port. Now the question is what size are the fittings ? 3/8 npt, 1/4" npt or 1/8" npt.

One other thing the feed line is gonna be kind of long using the port above the filter and my turbo is behind the pass headlight, is the -4 line gonna be adequate for that length. I'm guessing 5 feet or so.

Default Re: Feeding oil to my turbo (BBC)

I would run a -6 up towards the core support then you could neck it down if need be....... or just put a restrictor in the fitting.....a -4 mite be fine...... I do see the length kinda long though......shit now ya got me second guessing it.....lol

Thanks guys, Reed said to feed it with a -6 all the way, he said that my particular turbo needs all the oil it can get and he said no restrictor. Hope this helps others during search

Well for the life of me I cannot get the plug out above the oil filter, I think I stripped it and I dont think I want to try and drill it out and use an E-Z out while engine still in car.

Can I use something like this block one port and feed the turbo this way ? Running out of options guys.




22-542 - BBC REMOTE OIL COOLER SANDWICH ADAPTER (22-542)

This Chevy BBC Remote Oil Cooler Sandwich Adapter is used up to Mark IV. It provides an in and out port for installing an oil cooler. It mounts between the oil filter and block, replacing the stock bypass and bolting into the mounting holes left after the bypass is removed. The filter is lowered only 1-1/2". Oil ports are 1/2" N.P.T. Comes complete with O-Rings and hardware.

Or



22-560 - BBC OIL INPUT SANDWICH ADAPTER (22-560)

This BBC Oil Input Adapter and Bypass Eliminator, Mark IV, provide two 1/2" N.P.T. oil input ports, one before filtration (for an external oil pump) and one after filtration (for an Accusump). It mounts between the oil filter and block and bolts into the mounting holes left after the bypass is removed. Removing the stock bypass allows the engine to receive filtered oil all the time. The filter is lowered only 1-1/2". Comes with hardware and O-Rings.



Which one to use if this is the way to go for me.

instead of doing it that way, why not just put a remote filter on it? to answer your question, yes you could do it that way, but if I'm seeing that adapter rite, you would need to complete the cooler circuit. it looks like all of the oil is pushed thru the cooler then back to the filter......
