Default Hi everyone, Intro + newbie Questions

Hi there, I own a white 1990 miata w/ about 120k miles which is pretty much stock engine wise. I've had it for a little over a year and just out of the blue felt the urge for a little "boost." I spent a couple hours reading write ups and so on on the forum on the GReddy kit but was unable to find pictures to where I would route the lines (vacuum, oil, etc) . Anybody have any pictures or a link to a past post (where i probably over looked or missed) where they discuss this?

Thank you very much.

Oil feed line is tapped here where the blue fitting is behind the dipstick:


The Greddy kit comes with an oil drain line that is a known week point in the system, don't use it. Instead, tap your oil pan and return the oil directly to the pan immediately beneath the turbo:
Don't tap where this guy did, TAP WHERE THE RED X IS:


For your vaccum lines, there are 2 taps on top of the intake manifold directly behind the throttle body. You can tap into there... or there is one tap on the back of the manifold for the FPR, use that one to feed your Vortech. Use the ones on the front to feed your BOV. Your boost gauge tap can be taken off of anywhere.

AND DON'T FORGET TO READ THE FAQ AT THE TOP OF THE DIY FORUM. NO MORE POSTS FOR YOU UNTIL YOU READ THE FAQ!!!

The greddy kit is oil cooled and not water cooled so no need to mess with the coolant lines
