Quick question I haven't been able to find the answer on here. Where are you guys getting your oil input line from?

I use a -3 stainless steel brake line screwed into a T on the case, where the stock oil sender is :wink:

I share Mario's opinion. I have a TiAl and Turbosmart. Both very good gates in my opinion. The TS is tiny, and had a very nice spring clamp system.

Had an oil leak that turned nasty when I switched to Royal Purple. Looked like it was coming from the flywheel seal but it was on top of the case, thought it was coming through that inspection hole or whatever it is. Pulled the engine, replaced it, put it back in, lead worse than ever. Had to be coming from the shroud oil cooler. Pulled just the shroud, PITA with the turbo set up on. Put a new cooler in, so far so good. Now if it would stop raining in southern florida. 4th week of rain, beginning to remind me of summer in Michigan..only a lot hotter.

Just spent the last week doing a quick refresh on my motor, got it all installed yesterday, took pretty much all day. Managed to fire it up today, and after swapping rear tires and lowering it off of the jackstands i noticed a new puddle under it, looked up to see the source and could see a drip hanging from the flywheel side of the motor. No racing for me tonight!

Will changing fuel also change boost pressure?

No but changing fuel to a higher grade of octane can let you run more boost.
