    Top mount manifold, Cheap ebay one, thta i modded/ re fabricated at work, oil supply lines and fitting that i made at work, exhaust system i will make at work, basically it a kit i have put together myself.

    Just need to know the usual drain point, i could route it round the other side of the engine to the same location as the dipstick tube, but didnt want to do that if there is another option people go for.

    Usually turbo cars drain straight into the sump, this could be a problem on yours as the sump is aluminium and the oil sits fairly high in it, routing it round the engine to the dipstick would be a nightmare, what does the kit recommend if anything?

    any update on this kit? car ever got to life?
    There are only two products required to make the universe work properly: Duct tape and WD40. 


    If it moves (and it shouldn't): duct tape. 
If it doesn’t move (and it should): WD40.

    Everything else is just stuff.
