    I made an adaptor where the oil pressure switch is.

    Weld a fitting into the sump.
    I'm interested to know if there is a better way, as I am in the process of turbo'ing my vs as well. I dont really want to drill a hole in the sump with it still fitted to the engine.

    I was wondering if it was possible to weld a fitting to metal rocker covers. But I think there may be an issue with oil flow because the turbo will be mounted lower than the heads.

    Lol every one is turboing there VS mine is a stayesman

    Any way iv found threw my research that the sump is one of the best options as the oil can use gravity to feed back into the sump.

    Another option is to put the oil line to the cap for the engine oil refill but then you cant use gravity and will need a oil pump to ensure the oil dosnt stay innthe lines and flows correctly
