Sorry was afraid that might happen.

The pump is on the vertical wall that forms the back seat rest. There is a nice flat surface to mount your pump above the torsion tube. Above the fuel pump bracket. There's room on both the left and right sides of the car.

My plumbing in the photo is for two turbos. I don't have any kind of drip can or vent. I thought those -10 (5/8) pipes would hold plenty of drips. Also thought I would try it without any venting. You can find other threads discussing vents and drip tanks.

I made that sump plate with two -10 fittings. It's a stock steel plate with the steel fittings welded on. Used it for gravity drain for a few years but the turbos would collect oil if the car sat for a few weeks. No problems now.

In the photo the hose on the sump is for a second electric pump that makes oil pressure before the engine is started.
