I'm Doing a Single Rear Mount Turbo on my SUV I Pulled a used Turbo Off a 2000 Saab 9000 (Perfect Shape) And I Built a Stainless Steel Oil Container to Set Up By the turbo so i don't have to run long lines, now do i need to install and oil pump or some other sort of pump for the turbo or No? (I am a Noob with Turbos and Still Learning)

Its Going on a 1994 Explorer and No i don't plan on running High Boost, just Low boost to help out with Highway Power

Thanks For The Help!

im not real sure i understand exactly what your oiling system consists of. are you going to run an independent oiling system just for the turbo or are you just installing some sort of reservoir and using the engines oil pump to feed the oil supply to the turbo ? if its the latter then you will need a pump to return the oil to the pan. otherwise the oil backs up in the return line and ends up puking out of the exhaust. if its an independent oiling system, you need a supply pump but depending on design you may not need a return pump.

Sorry For the lack of Info But Yes It is Independent,Its Just your Basic Square Shape that will hold maybe 5qs of Oil, the Oil Feed Line will be on the bottem, Iv Been looking At an electric Fuel pump at pepboys for $30 would that work for a pump or no? ( I Know its For Fuel not Oil)

i honestly dont know about using a fuel pump. it would definitely move the oil but i dont know how well it would handle the heat. the pump you need is about $200.

yeah, i would use one for feed and the other for return if your turbo is lower than the return inlet on your oil tank.

I researched this a year or so ago and 10sec.et is right - I think the heat will kill any fuel pump you try to use. Not to mention it'll be pumping syrup compared to what it's designed for. Are you mounting behind the axle or can you put it closer. If you could snuggle it up next to the transmission the lines wouldn't have to be that long and you could just run one pump. Just a thought.
