I never understood the reasoning behind that. No matter where you dump the oil, it will still flow to the static oil level. But, it wasn't going to gamble my only oil pan, so I went the tried and true method. My local diesel shop dumps the oil somewhere in the valve cover.

I think Trent Nell did some kits that way,it works if you mount the turbo high enough. Thats how I want to do mine when/if I get that far, the other option is the front of the upper oil pan.

I think the upper front oil pan is by far the best location. Easy access and the best drain position.

Got all the piping fabbed up and on. Currently fighting fitment for the intake and MAF. Waiting on a silicone boot elbow and should be complete besides oil drain sndbpowder coating the piping once I test run it to make sure there's no leaks. I'll try to upload some pictures from the process.

Secondly, what's everyone using to clean the inside of the pipe before you run the Truck? As far as welding slag, welding wire that may have fallen inside and stuck, etc. I got most of it all clean, just paranoid to ruin $3k in chargers. Thanks in advance

I'm guessing you used a mig welder instead of a Tig. Die grider with a carbide or flapper sander would be the best bet.

I finished it all up and is running. Waiting on Starlite to get it tuned this week and let it rip. Right now it wont do much due to the MAF not scaled correctly. So far, knock on wood, no leaks or weird noises.

I have pictures but cannot upload them for some reason, if someone on here would allow me to text them to them to upload, that would be great.

I have also considered picking up a billet 7 (or maybe 6?) blade wheel from Bullseye during the Cyber Monday sales, although does anyone on here have experience with upgrading a cast 80 to billet 80? as far as sound, spool, and performance? Just asking due to the fact I would have to send it off to somewhere to be balanced and cost of the wheel alone ($350).

Thanks to all have contributed!
