Found out that there were two kinks in my drain line and my check valves were not sealed properly causing the oil to backup and shoot out the turbos and spray my engine with oil from the feed side. Next time I am just going to pump the oil thruough the oil pan drain to simplify everything and have been known to work well on twin systems using the pump I have. Also, my turbos both had minimal "shaft play" but found out from a specialist that the amount play is normal for a functioning turbo. However, I already put everything back to stock so I won't have anymore updates on this project until the summertime at least.

Sounds like some good news on the turbos. I know it's a pain to keep taking them on and off, so I don't blame you for taking a break. I'm being forced to do the same right now just because of demands at work. Can't wait to see your update in a few months.

I feel you on that one, If I had a shop with a lift things would be very different right now. Getting on the floor and jacking the car up to check each issue got tiring really fast even when I had help. When will you be able to continue troubleshooting your setup? It would be cool to see your setup running perfect before ISP releases their kit.

If I happen upon another powerdyne for cheap I'll use my old brackets and try to finish the SC kit. It was much easier to troubleshoot the SC because everything's in the engine bay and can revert back to stock in less than an hour.

Nope. Been working 7 days a week. Guy that built it said if I can get the car to him he'll do the work, so I may just do that. He's the guy that's going to build the skid plate so it'll be going in his shop at some point anyways.

My old thread has one pic in it http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=116284.
With the procharger, the blower pulley will face towards the back of the car and I can use the stock belt system. From there I have two options, if I use a smaller pulley I can just buy a longer belt but will have to bleed off the extra boost and pin the crank. If I use the correctly sized larger pulley, I will have to use a 2-sided 6rib belt and replace the tensioner to a grooved pulley but have the right boost level and not have to pin the crank (even though I will pin eventually). decisions!

I have one more pic of my finished setup with the powerdyne but it is in my old phone. I will post it as soon as I can extract it.
