Infamous turbo oil line install
 
Today I installed a BNR16g, infamous oil lines with filter, a Perrin inlet an up pipe, a down pipe, and a power steering pump. I found the infamous instructions lacking, and I didn't find the picture I was looking for when installing the oil lines. So I took a few shots with everything apart in hopes that they may aid someone else in te future.

The lines themselves are of fantastic quality, unlike every broken piece of brittle plastic under the hood. They don't leak and the fittings are top notch. I usually suggest Teflon tape on the threads of such things when installing them. The kit was absolutely complete otherwise. The small aluminum bracket that the holds the screw together filter canister is very nicely made and fits perfectly. I recommend putting some antisieze on te bolt that pinches the filter to hold it. It makes it go in a bit easier and will save you some hassel upon removal. the shorter of the two hoses included in the kit stacks a banjo bolt fitting on top of the one for the avcs on the front of the pass side valve cover. It comes with a nifty dual hole banjo bolt to feed each fitting. Ill try and load some pics of tr turbo side of the kit tomorrow. The turbo side keeps the stock banjo bolt in place and comes with a a cap to cap off the oil line that used to feed the turbo. Also of note, the oil flows from te front I the motor to the back into the turbo so make sure you have the arrow for direction f flow on the filter pointing toward the turbo. I'm spent... I'll add more tomorrow. In the interim here's the pictures I wish I had yesterday...

Thanks for the info - Should be completing a very similar setup soon except sticking with stock DP for now. So where exactly do you cap off the original oil line? Can it just be stopped up at its source instead of all the way upstream to the turbo?

Maybe dum question: I have the torque specs for the UP/DP to turbo connections, but are there any heating/tightening cycles that need to happen. I'm assuming antisieze on all the bolts/studs.

It's always the little things that make or break my installs... but if all goes well I'll be opening it up on the autobahn by spring.

Just tighten the nut's on the turbo, I have had mine off/on a few times and never torqued anything, just make sure they are tight. Don't over thing this, you can get much leverage in there anyways.

It you have a small exhaust leak just go back and snug things up.

Very helpful pictures thanks VS!

I've looked at those instructions a couple times, but I'm not super familiar with all the routing of lines and such in the engine bay so this makes it much more clear.

Cheers!

Good stuff.

Thanks for the pics. Im assuming that the avcs extra line replaces the hard line there at the front of the head correct? Or is it the one on the rear of the head?

The front AVCS line stack on top of the AVCS line with an extra long double holed banjo bolt that comes in the kit. (Picture 2)

The rear line stays in place, after you have removed the banjo filter of course. and then the line that comes out is capped with the hexagonal cap in picture 5. The rest of this line that would go to the turbo is removed.

Ok so you just have the basic oil line kit? Or the full one with the avcs line?

ViscousSquirrel 03-15-2012 01:34 PM

Full kit

OutbackXT05 03-15-2012 01:55 PM

Ohhhh i see it now. Pardon my blindness.

Nope, you've got the turbo line kit listed here...

The one he's talking about includes lines to the AVCS...

http://www.infamousperformance.net/s...d-Turbo/Detail

At least the pictures you show are the first kit.

VC,
Just PM'd you about this THEN I saw your thread. Maybe with the other kit you have to remove the intake, doesn't seem like it's too bad to get done. Thanks again for your time with the PIX and info!!

I installed the entire kit, page 3 for a pic and description (I ended up routing the end of the line over the wastegate actuator arm):

Ahh ok that makes everything clear for me thanks

moawdtsi,
Your kit install has 3 lines, looks like VS's kit has 2, maybe thats the difference between the $170 kit(VC's) and the one you show $200ish from Imfamous. I Ordered the one like VC has from Imfamous, $170 but it seems the filters are back-ordered a bit, should get it next week. Thanks folks for the PIX, makes things a whole lot easier!
