    You need a sandwich adapter, there are a few companies who make them. Don't try to tap it off the sendine unit.

    You can soucre the vaccum from the turbo for the wastegate but there is some drilling and tapping involved.

    The BOV and wastegate need vaccum to function correctly, you can "t" off the one on the intake mani and use those.

    woah woah woah... put your brakes on.

    an FMU + large injectors will cause you a ton or flooding problems. FMU's are designed to run stock, or near stock injector size. stock is 240. 310 is as high as i would recommend.

    as for the block fitting, it is a BSPT fitting- not an NPT. so make sure you get the right thing.

    Oil feed line part list

    1- male 1/8" BSPT to female 1/8" NPT adapter (aluminum)
    1- 1/8" NPT Brass Tee adapter with one male out and two females.
    1- 3.5' of -3AN lines with hose ends attach
    1- straight 1/8" NPT to -3AN adapter
    1- 90 deg 1/8" NPT to -3AN adapter


    Oil Return Parts list

    Oil Drain Flange 1/2"

    1/2" to -10AN adapter 45 degrees adapter
    45 deg -10AN swivel seal hose end
    Straight -10AN Swivel seal hose end
    1' of -10AN 200 series hose.
    -10 steel weld on bung
