    I searched around and didn't find the answer I was really looking for.

    I'm considering trying a sandwich adapter this time to avoid using various tees and plugs to run the feed line and oil press. gauge.

    Is there going to be any oil pressure issues using the sandwich adapter? For some reason I remember a post saying that there may not be adequate pressure and I would burn up a turbo?

    Yea , it was just a pain doin a T on the dseries cuz to take it out you had to take the oil filter mount off as since one end of the T collided with it.

    Ill talk to you about it in a few days when i get paid if that's cool.

    Run a straight piece of line off the back of the block to the firewall, place your T on the firewall. Will make it much easier to work on and what not.
