This line is usually found on the top of the turbo center housing This step is optional. Prior to mounting the OPR, install 1/8”  
rotating assembly (CHRA) that feeds the turbo for lubrication and NPT gauge or sensor. Unscrew existing 1/8” NPT blank anti-  
cooling. Take time to determine where you wish to mount the clockwise with 3/16” hex key. Apply thread lubricant and screw  
OPR in the engine bay. Some examples of placement for your in clockwise until finger tight, then tighten further 1-2 turns for  
OPR are:  
Mounted against chassis  
Mounted onto oil filler cap  
Mounted onto breather return line  
Mounted onto breather tank

OPR regulating below 40psi (275kPa)Ensure engine oil pressure is above 40psi, if engine oil pressure is below 40psi, the OPR will not  
regulate until inlet pressure exceeds 40psi.
