Working on those pics right now, should be able to email you in half an hour.

Are you just talking about the oil return line? The oil feed is something else, do you need pics of that too? The pic I'm going to send you shows how the oil return line feeds into the drain plug of the oil pan. The peice to do this can be obtained from ISR, tell them I told you about it if you decide to use it (much easier than tapping the pan, and I haven't been burning oil).

The BOV might be up for sell actually, not because there's anything wrong with it, but because it's going to be very difficult for me to mount myself. The intercooler piping is plastic, and has a mounting position for the OEM BOV, but the Blitz won't really fit in this spot as I think it's too big. So I might see what kind of cheap OEM BOV's will work and sell off the Blitz. But I don't know yet, and I might not even get to work on it this weekend, as I have girlfriend commitments.

I'm sending you a pic of the BOV and pipe it's mounted on. It's not terribly loud, but it can be heard with the windows up and no music. People do look when I shift.

Ok, I only took two, one of the return line into the drain plug, and one of the pipe from turbo to throttle body (w/ BOV).

I can take a lot more if you guys tell me what you want to see and give a day.

Oil line is hooked up to the drain plug using this neato ISR do hickey, I'll take pics during lunch (leaving right now). I don't know how to post them though, maybe I'll email.

I've got a blitz bov, venting to the atmosphere. It's mounted to a pipe that ISR fabbed up for me. The stainless steel blitz bov is very loud, I'm not sure if I like it.

Intercooler is still sitting in my garage. Install should be very easy, only thing that's holding me up is that I'm not sure how I'm going to mount the BOV, and I need to find a way to bracket to the firewall.

That only kept me busy for 3 minutes.

i have a t25 that looks like it came off of a DSM, i have a fabricated system with compatible up and down pipes, and the IC looks like it's going to be in the fender, the blow off valve is still coming whenever i get paid next and i also have a FPR where i have no idea where it came from. i bought this kit from flat 4, and i think it'll suffice for street races only, any bigger would prolly be for the track.

that's why i'm dpeneding on you guys for so much help. hey it's not just my kit, but ya'll's now!! thanks for all the help!!
