    Turbo 01 silverado

    I have a 2001 Silverado 1500 that I am building a turbo kit for. I have a few questions. To run my cross over pipe from the driver side bank can I just go through my factory y pipe to do so? Also do I have to get new exhaust manifolds, or do I need new ones? Injector sizing, what size injectors do I need? 42lbs or 60lbs? Last part. Where to tap in to the oil pressure for my turbo feed. For drain can I just drill a hole in the pan and tap it? Thanks guys. I serched the forum but I couldn't find anything . Thanks.

    You can retain the factory drivers side manifold. Your going to have to build a crossover pipe to tie into the backside of the turbo manifold.

    Depending on your power goals your going to want to upgrade your factory fuel system. From the pump to the injectors.

    What kinda power goals are you after?

    PM me if you have any more questions.

    I dont want any huge power number, just somethin that gets around a little faster. How would I retain my factory emissions? Where can I tap my oil pressure to the turbo in at.
