Look through those threads and read up on clocking the turbo. You'll understand what everyone is trying to tell you after you do some reading.

ok, so i did how your DIY clocking thread said and its just how it should be, return line pointing down.

so now im with a bunch of custom piping that is useless to me now..which is perfectly fine cuz it is my fault of course for not doing research first..

Magnamx-5 do you have any pictures showing how you did your piping for the 16g turbo. im a little confused on how i should have mines done.

please and thank you!!

Alright well i just realized i can still keep the piping duhh, just turned the cold side of the turbo to its original position while still keeping the return line facing down.

but before i put the turbo back i blew the one side of oil lines and plugged the other side and i hear air coming out of the end of the hot side turbine.

did i blow my oil seals??

its stuck in that position because of a groove slot. plus i had all my piping custom cut and welded to fit the current position of the turbo.

the return port isnt exactly horizontal like the picture shows, it does point to the ground at like a 45* angle
