TDO4 swap issues!

So me being all excited and ready to put everything in ... i didn't check for an oil out piece... so i call my buddy up with a TDO4 out of a wrx and i take the oil out off his and cut it because its too long. Not to mention i cant install the oil out without a gasket and my buddy lays on the one i have and rips it...
the bolt pattern lines up with the oil out... it should be fine using a wrx oil out right? it seems a little smaller than the one on my oil pan... :shrugs::

oil out shouldn't matter... when i installed my td04 lines i was just like "oh, that'll work" on the coolant lines because none of them were right... so i spliced both of them

Which ECU do you have? How much boost? I think you can go up to 15.5 on a NG900

your car should run fine with just the turbo swap... re-adapt your ecu... unplug the battery then plug it back up after about 15 minutes... then go and do four 4th gear pulls from 60-90 and you should be fine...

So I installed my buddies TurboXS single stage street version MBC out of his SRT4 on my 2.0l 16v TDO4HL-15T 5cm^2 stock fmic JT 3inch exhaust from the turbo back and no ecu tuning. The MBC is set for 15.5 psi WORKS GREAT! no fuel cut what so ever AWESOME pulls.

Dude you deffinitely shouldn't be hitting boost cut at all on a stock ecu with a td04 turbo. Something else isn't quite right.

BPC lines were installed wrong thanks to too many hands under the hood... that and i took an aircompressor to the valve and it had moisture in there... no issues anymore

Where can I buy a oil return pipe for my TDO4? I checked Eeuropart and I didn't see it on the site... just the gasket.

The dealership.

I assume that your wastegate could be let out a bit.

They can order you one if you give them a call. I just had them get the tube for the oil pan, a new o-ring, and the drain hose. My current drain is kind of kludged together from the old T-25 hose, a short piece of a fuel line, and an eBay TD04 drain tube. I think that part should be fine.
