I wondered if that was a bit of foreshadowing. I love turbos....

Just out of curiosity, how are you going to get oil to the bearings of that turbocharger? Unless it's a pressure lube engine, which it could be. I may not be a fan of turbochargers, but I know the bearings in 'em need to be lubricated hahaha.

I would run a separate oil supply for it if it was me. Whole separate system. The oil would last longer. Turbos get super hot, so that oil would be in the engine too, it would raise operating temps, and it just wouldn't be happy. But with a separate oil supply, the engine oil will be cooler and the engine will be happier

Yeah that would probably work pretty good. Could even run it by a spot on the engine where the cold air from the flywheel exits the shrouds. That would maybe help cool the oil a bit.
