Don't have an answer, but also interested in mounted location, as well as any new suggestions for routing of the turbo drain hose.

Are you dumping down into a modified oil sump plate?

Flat6: I reread your entire conversion post. When/How did you get the 420chp at .5bar?

Intercooler change?
Only injector change?
