    just to make sure we are all talking about the same thing heres a pic of it

    If yours dont look like that you wont have the same problem, If you do to remove take it off is 4 bolts that go to the block, you then need the other type to put back in it's place, i dont have a pic of it but it looks the same execpt it doesnt have the huge unit on the top of it.
    To fit a front mounted oil cooler i used a sandwich plate from rally design (you can get them off ebay) this then sits between the oil filter and carrier, Theres a pic below of how i ran the oil pipes

    Done compression test today and checked for valve leakage. Everything good, except that the car still wont idle properly and it's impossible to adjust idle from the aac valve. Also if i squeeze the pipe coming off the cold start valve the car will not stall when cold anyway. What can cause this, i am desperate.

    As said before do a proper boost leak check with smoke or something, and check coilpacks they commonly go and make it idle shit.

    How can i check with the smoke? The car when warm runs good, the idle is a little bit lumpy and if you press the gas and release it, it tends to stall and then it jumps back to normal.

    Stalling is a Common ca fail have you chipped the ecu? A smoke check basically includes pressurising smoke into your ic piping and watching for where it leaks out from, visually inspecting the piping will never be any good. Some garages can do this for you or there are ways you can bodge it up yourself.

    Yes mate it's chipped but started doing this way before, it got worse after i fitted the fmic. I pressurized all the ic piping and found no leaks...i guess that the fault it's in the plenum, so i will probably take it off in the next days...

    Bahhhhh Ricky bobby, the stuff on my SR breather is pretty crap tbh but I've had no issues what so ever. Although, I has some nice silicone hosing and fire proof covering for it just to protect it as a "what if" temp, as well as Murt who said breather hoses can melt onto the manifold in some cases meaning fire :/ I'd say anything will do just make sure it's thick and not completely shite and you'll be granddddddd

    Not sure if anyone on here could answer this question for me, I am running a t28r from an s15 on my ca18det and this turbo has been running with no problem on this engine for a few years now and knowing the history of my car it was first installed 3 owners ago and i have also had no problems with it at all but I stumbled across a bit of information saying that roller bearing turbos should have restricted oil lines because they do not need as much as normal bearing and the oil could actually damage the seals and bearings so after removing it because of other work i have been doing to the car I thought I would have a look and from what I can tell there is no restrictions at all. Most of the information I have seen relates to running the t28r on an sr20 but im sure this could also relate to the CA18. I am just a bit concerned because I have just spent a fair bit of money on the car and if i could prevent early failure of the seals and bearings I wont have to be dishing out more money for a turbo any time soon

    That's the ones, the fit is nearly there just needs a little more work, have been a nightmare to get on. There's a few more pics on my build thread of them.
    Need to get the turbo on and mapped cant wait.

    A question for the ca society.... I understand there's a couple of oil feed pipes beneath the inlet manifold of a ca18det engine, are these the pipes which feed the head/ hydraulic lifters etc, if so are they prone to blockages,,?as my ca is being starved of oil to the head

    No oil feed hoses there mate. The only external oil lines are the ones going to/coming from the turbo. The ones you're talking about are oil breather hoses. There is a thick hose coming from the crank case that's going to the valve cover. But if you're having oil starvation issues to the head you might want to check your oil level, but guessing you've already done that you are probably best off checking/replacing your oil pump.
