I couldn't figure out how to neatly and safely install a oil pressure sender on this ldk since it only has 2 ports on the block and I don't want to use the head. I didn't want a sloppy job like adapters and tees, so I made This little neat cleanly done gizmo.

This is basically what I'm doing. Ordered some line and 90 degree fittings, also new oil block cause I kinda wrecked that one. Also another ecotec oil galley plug that will screw into the stock sender port and convert to an4.

Sounds like improper tq on the manifold bolts vs too much weight. I've never heard or seen that happen. You have 10 studs holding it all...

all it takes is one, and I trust john when he says he has seen multiple, so id rather be safe than sorry. there is a reason gm put even on the stock turbo a support. there is no point in arguing this with me, I'm doing what I'm doing because I want peace of mind about it. if it can happen to one person, it can happen to another.

If your going to have john build a brace make sure that it only attaches to the turbo itself and not your downpipe.
