I think that Sir William has the engine oil supply feeding the turbo, with a pump on the return line to ensure that the oil doesn't back up in the turbo. Of course, I could be wrong, but this setup would work fine anyway, provided you have the correct pump.

He's using the oiling system from the STS rear mount turbo f-body kit.

holy crap, how's the lag with that crazy long piping?? I've seen kits like that but I've never actually seen it on a car of somone on here. I just didn't realize that's the kti he was using. What happens when you drive in the rain?

No lag to speak of, not more than any other turbo car that is. 1/2 to a second or so at speed. As for rain, a bit of water on the road is fine. But a LOT of water is bad. Standing water on the road can be pulled into the intake tract. It just causes a slight miss if you crack open the throttle over 1/2, but it evaporates pretty quickly with all the air passing over it. If it rains that bad, I'll pull over or not drive at all.

As for the oiling system, it's indeed adapted from STS' kit. There are several things I would do differently knowing what I know now, but not tremendously, just a bit. :D

I wonder if you could cut a hole in the trunk and stick the air filter in there :D I know it sounds weird but it could probably work. A little moisture is alright, especially with a turbo, the turbine actually turns it into a mist and it would simulate water injection ;)

he's actually prototyping it, so it's not a kit...yet.
