    I haven't installed mine yet, but was wondering where all of ya'll placed your pumps and how far away from your turbos. And, was your pump mounted below your turbos? Marc @ TurboWerx said that the pump could be mounted basically anywhere in the engine bay do to the suction the pump causes.

    I placed mine in the engine compartment, on the side, near the passenger side shock tower. Works great.

    I installed the Turbowerx pump in the engine bay as well but out of view as much as possible. I fabricated a mounting plate for the pump and attached the mounting plate to the lower radiator support. This was a very convenient location because it meant pretty short runs for all the hoses and it was basically one of the only places I still had any spare room left.

    I've been meaning to get more pictures but hopefully you will get the idea from these:

    And if you're wondering what the small filter element is for well that's the vent from my catch can seen here:

    Well before I had determined that the scavenge pump was a necessity I had actually had 2 bungs welded in the front of my Canton pan for gravity drains from the turbos. Since they didn't work out so well I plugged one of the front ones and used the other one. I could have used the one that came prefabricated in the side of the Canton pan though and that would have worked just as well.

    I just have mine powered by a 40A relay that I wired to come on with the ignition. Pretty simple really

    I also am looking for a scavage pump and do not know what kind to buy. Any help would be appreciated. I would also like to find a kit for the valve cover breathers to go to a catch can??

    Get the Exa pump from turbowerx.com $360 shipped. I think im going to mount mine on the side of the radiator support. I dont have access of making a bracket and i have driven my cobra because of the embrassing smoke that people tell me about when i pull up to a light. Yes where could i find the kit for the breather on the valve covers.

    So did you tee the return lines together then into the pump or did you use some type of holding tank?
    Thanks

    I ran two identical length pieces of hose from each turbo to a "T" and ran that to the suction of the pump. The advantage to using a sump tank for your pump is that it will give the remaining pressurized oil somewhere to go when the engine is shut off. I simply turn the ignition ahead again for a short time after I shut off my engine to re-energize the pump and suck away any remaining oil...

    Thanks. I didn't see a check valve in the line going to the pan. Does it need one?
