I'm running a boosted B18B1 in my DC4 and I was wondering how much oil I should be putting into the engine. I know you have to put more than you usually would cause the turbo needs oils but how much exactly. Should I be at the upper hole on the dipstick or above it? Thanks and sorry about the noob question.

the dip stick reading will be the same if you have no turbo or ten turbos.

turbo car oil change steps!

1 drain oil
2 remove filter
3 install new filter
4 install drain plug
5 Fill oil to top notch on dip stick
6 disable fuel injectors
7 crank car till oil light goes off or you build oil pressure crank for a few extra seconds (this gets oil to the turbo)
8 enable injectors
9 run car for about 30sec
10 check dip stick

i usually run to top notch for anything that leaks or burns oil if not about mid way is perfect.

now you must rep! lol

How are you disabling your injectors?

I knew about the procedure for priming the system when changing my oil but thanks for posting it anyway. I guess that means I should drain some oil out cause I'm running over the dot by like half a quart, probably not a good idea from what I'm reading.

it could cause the oil to get air in it and cause a oil pressure drop or the oil pump could go into cavitation.

I'm getting normal oil pressure readings, 10 at idle and 50-60 on the highway. However I think I'll just drop some out of the pan anyway.
