    Default oil line routing

    I have valve spring oilers and wondering if i could run my #4 line to the oilers then to the turbos? Would it starve the turbos of oil? Thanks For any input

    What type of turbo system do you have?

    While that would probably work, as the oilers are not using that volume, I would run a separate line to feed the oilers, and another to feed the turbos. It also should be easier to keep the lines neat that way.

    I like to run the oil feed for the turbos in the valley of the intake if you have a manifold with open runners, then tee to the two sides in the middle?

    check out the buxton boats thread in the vdrive section. He tapped the fitting in the oil cooler for lines to the spring oilers etc. pretty cool (literally haha) maybe an expanded concept off that, maybe a small distribution block/manifold etc. idk. You'll come up with sumpthin cool i'm sure.

    I would only run filtered oil to the spring oilers and turbos.

    Yes, All oiler & turbo lines are coming off of a Teague HP-6 oil filter head. Thanks Barry for all the input. How is Parker treating you? You are living the dream

    Of course the ports in the block just above the standard filter location are clean, cooled oil as well, and easy to keep neat going to both locations.

    I am enjoying living here, had good weather and some boats and skiers out this weekend, but even with a storm heading in today it's still a beautiful place.
