You can run the propane setup that you have.  Although, I'd send the mixer back to Cary so that he can tweak it for you to support the turbo.  When i first switched to propane, i knew i was going to be running a turbo down the road so i had him tweak mine ahead of time.  I'm sure you know from when you ordered your kit from him, but he is awesome  to deal with.

As dan stated above he's a good guy to deal with. When lew was building his fd up toy or whatever you call it with the hx35 on a 350 and propane Cary personally met us at settc one year and help tune it. He's a jam up guy!

Propane LOVES boost.  A friend of mine has a killer setup on his 22R.  And it screams.

Awesome! Thank you for that link! I can fab that up easy enough and just TIG it all up.

Still in research mode now.

Are you planning on using it blow through? I had better experience wirh using it draw through. Helps keep the tiny turbo cool as well.

I will be doing draw through...its like a built in intercooler lol..
yeah everything i have read, is its hard to get vacume set right with a blow through setup on propane because the mixer, works off of vacume, and the boost will through that off..

Like you and Dan just said. The draw through acts like a cooler to keep the charge air (and fuel in this case) cool. Put that in an intercooler and shes gonna take the hood off when it back fires lol

I'd shoot for where ever a stock rte pan dumped. But I wouldn't think it would matter too much. I know on a 5.9 cummins it dumps to the block just above the front of the oil pan. Same engine in different applications have the sump in front rather than rear or what have you. I'd think you would be fine anywhere.

you can go a couple different routes.  if you have the later model block and you want to machine it to match the factory configuration, you'd need to drill and tap the port on the driver side of the block close to the bell housing for the oil feed.  as far as the oil return goes, there is a flat part of the block near the oil pan that would need to be drilled and a fitting made to drain the oil back into the pan.

Or you can go another route, on the passenger side of the block, you can use one of the oil pressure sender ports to supply the oil to the turbo and then you can make a fitting to attach to the side of the oil pan to allow the oil to return back to the pan.

when i first put my motor in the truck, i went the second route.  Only because the machine shop was too much of a sissy to drill and tap the block for the oil supply.  but i did still return the oil to the pain with a fitting.  But when i get finished with my build, the oil return will be going directly into the block like it did from the factory.

I hope that helps or makes sense to you.

Thanks, i have the fitting behind the passenger side motormount that i was going to use. already have the fitting from LCE...never thought of drilling the block...i just dont want any back pressure on the return line, from extreme angles while wheeling..

I know what you mean.  I haven't had any issues yet when the oil return was going directly to the oil pan.  Thats one of the reasons i'm putting it into the block like the factory has it.

Yeah i was going to check the depth of oil when full in the pan and go from there..
