Hello,
I have a turbo charger ready to go on my ranger but need help finding a good place to hook up my oil return line. Any help is much appreciated!

We need more info. What motor do you have?
Turbos i've seen have all been on the Lima motors, and guys drill and tap a hole into the block to match where the drain line goes to on the Turbocoupe motors. If you seriously have to ask this question, are you sure you're ready to turbo a motor???

It is a 1994 2.3l dual spark plug engine. The turbo is a ihi warnerishi turbo. I do know what I am doing I am just looking to see what other people have done to find the best way to plumb things!

Nice. Where did you score the manifold and turbo? If you can score me the piston and rods off of it you'll be my new best friend.
