Why not run it to a catch can, then from the catch can get a double adaptor oil filter t piece, then screw it into that. A lot of ricers run them for oil feed but I dont see why it wont go the other way. Thought you had to run a catch can anyway to separate oil and air?


it dont quite work that way..

Why? I thought that was the easiest way to do oil lines?


the oil return line has to flow downward from the turbo directly to the sump, its not under pressure,
without a return to the sump how is the oil going to get back into the engine,
if you run your turbo oil return line to a catch can you will need to empty it every 5 mins then pour the oil back into the engine..lol..

the oil catch can is used on the engine breather/rocker cover to catch oil and vapours from engine blowby, it dont get recirculated back into the engine...

to be honest your first post dont make sense..

Ricers run catch cans so they can plumb an oil feed from it? :?
