Default where find oil suorce for the turbo?

Dear,

I read many pages but my bad english did not help me.

I need a oil source for my turbo.

I thought to take it from the oil pressure sensor with a t connection, is a good idea or a bad idea?

I didn't want remove the OEM thermal excenge wather/oli and add a sandwich is impossible, the oil filter has too little space and touch on support of the collector.

Any solution is welcome!

I was going to ethug you pretty bad until I realized that you were in persuit of the American Dream.

Use a "T" fitting where the oil pressure sender goes, or there might be a spot on the exhaust side of the block.
