    Only other two supply hoses for non brakesaver engine is 159-9584 and 280-8170. Drains are 133-8940 and 116-2680. You have a 90 or 45 degree supply fitting? Take a pic and post it.

    Some E turbo oil feed comes from backside. Also, looks like you can clock your center section more towards block.
     
    SAR and Oxbow Thank this.

    Thanks, something I noticed is how much smaller that wastegate is than this one. Maybe that is the difference...
     
    Oxbow Thanks this.

    Ok, those tubes didn't work even with clocking it. so I went ahead and put the old stock tubes on but had to pull the wastegate pod off. They fit just fine, so will have to modify the mounting later.
    Hopefully this turbo isn't too small, I bobtailed to the barn(rain coming) and can hit 20psi boost quite easily and egts around 600-650 post turbo(about 6"). IMG_20180828_163257513.jpg

    What do you guys think?

    It is a 425. I have never touched the pump so I don't know to be honest...timing was checked to be half hole advance...
