oil question

Ok lets say your car says your suppose to use 4 quarts of oil. Do you need to add more if you turbo your car, you know like more oil for the turbo... Just wanted to know.
slightly, sure.

think about it- you are using maybe 2 cups of oil to fill the feed line at any given time.

and besides, a number is useless. drain it, fill it, crank it without it starting 2 or 3 times to get the oil up from the pump, crank it for real, let run, turn off, check, add more if required.


my b16 took a little over 4 1/2 quarts with my t3/t4

always let it idle for about 5-10min just to make sure the oil was going all the way through the system......then check it again. you never wanna run low on oil when running a turbo, its got bad news written all over it
