Ditto, don't rely on spring lockwashers, they loose their locking abilty quickly so keep an eye on the really all turbo bolts/nuts whenever you drive.

Thanks for the info! BY the way if my oil feed line is touching my downpipe, would that be a problem?

Yes, all turbo-to-manifold and turbo-to-downpipe bolts should be tighted to PFT™ spec.

I am actually using the greddy method for the return line, but I am worried about pooling. Thats why I want pics of other people's routing methods, so I don't end up damaging my turbo.

it's either that or drilling like in my FAQ and 80% of the members here.

Poor oil drainage won't technically damage the turbo, it will just burn up & smoke and sometimes push past the seals. Lots of members here have the standard GReddy return without issue, but like you know, it's not optimal.

How the hell do I line up the air filter/ maf to the intake to the turbo with no room?
