sok hey man just a question for you, do have a pic of how you tapped into the oil pressure switch? did you use a "T" fitting cause when i think about it theres not much space for a "T" fitting. Thanks! Sok.
Alot of people are having a hard time with the oil feed system. I'll post in detail as to what I did. here goes..

first off you need a Metric to Pipe fitting to go on to the block where the oil pressure switch is.



secondly you'll need a tee to for the feed line and oil pressure switch and like you said, there is not alot of room for a fitting so what I did is I grinded off part of the fitting and tapped it with a metric tap for the oil pressure switch.

Tee in orignal form.



Where you need to grind.



Next you'll need a straight Pipe to AN fitting, the pipe end will thread onto the tee and the AN side will be used for the feed line itself.



All of these fitting should be available thro a hydrolic shop in brass or steel, I used steel fittings for my setup. best thing to is take the info to the shop with the oil pressure switch and they will be able to help you out...once you get all the fittings figured out, you'll need to measure the length of the feed line and get them to custom make you a feed line from high pressure oil line.



This is the only picture I have of the oil lines...you can't really see the oil feed setup but I'll give you an idea

actually there more then enough thread on the fitting, and the switch ends up right in the middle of the fitting, doesn't bottom out.

Turbo ETA's ftw. I'm with you on the next summer thing, I got everything but a manifold and a couple little odds and ends.

I would love to do a full Mtec2 but the problem is that I'd have to hack up the front to get some air to the intercooler. On any car, the stance and the wheels make or break the car, and with the Mtec2 you need that slammed look with deep dish wheels to get it right, which looks great but my car is meant to be beaten on and I'm not sure about the functionality of a car that is scraping the ground with wheels sticking out of the fenders.

But it sure as hell is sexy...
