Clio 172 low pressure turbo conversion help.



  172 turbo 'cup'
Currently fitting a conversion to a 172 cup and have become stuck!
Does anyone know where the turbo oil drain connects to the engine block? The oil return pipe does not seem to be long enough. Got no insturctions from K-tec and need it fished today!

Cheers

You need to take the sump off and tap a 3/4bsp hole in the back of it, it needs to be on the flat part of the sump between the strengthening ribs.

Hope this helps.

Mate any more problems and I'll be more than happy to give you a hand, I only live in sunderland and have a bit of first hand experience with turbo clios. :)

Thanks for the offer mate. It's nearly completed now but I might have a few questions at a later date. :D

Cheers again.

One thing i would recommend is plumbing in some water cooling, garrett don't install there turbos with water jackets for no reason.

Thanks mate. It's already been sorted for water cooling. You would think it was supplied in the kit for the price!
