    Thread: Mk1 oil lines for turbo

      Can someone point me to a thread that shows how the turbo oil feed and return lines were run on a 1.6 diesel (NA). That you for you time.

      I am somewhat new to this, but I believe that the oil comes from the oil filter housing and returns to the oil pan.

      Bentley's has some diagrams of the 1.6L turbo diesel.

      Are you looking to add a turbo to your naturally aspirated engine? Did you finish your 1.9L swap?

      I have not been able to swap in the 1.9. I’m peeping the motor still. I had to replace most of the suspension on the caddy. Parts that didn’t fit tools went missing lol. But I want to turbo the 1.6 na that’s in it and when I swap in the 1.9 I will turbo it as well. I just wanted to get it all setup. I’m thinking I’ll swap it over next winter.

      I am at the parts hoarding stage of considering something similar. I found this old thread to be informative:

      Oil came from filter housing to the turbo and dumped into the back of the block via a port.
      Essentially just like the TDIs.

      Mk1 TDs had the return to the oil pan. Mk2s it went to the block.

      Wrong.
      I know you are a smart lady....I think you meant to say Mk.IV go to block. That is fine.

      All 1.6 oil route: oil filter housing.....to turbocharger.....drain to pan. End of story.

      Unless the AAZ had a different return route.
      Mrs. Smith is alive and well...thanks for asking.

      The problem with attempting to jury-rig a return to an original n/a pan is that the tin is quite thin and it warp very easily. It would be BEST if you find a stock td pan....maybe from a friend in Canuk country.

      Yep, top of the oil filter has a compression fitting screwed into it.
      The oil line runs around the side of the head,
      just above the waterneck.
      Then along the exhaust manifold.
      The turbo drain has a zig and zag that ends up at the top edge of the oil pan.

      Pretty easy to weld a 90 degree compression fitting into the oil pan.
      It's not that thin.

      The 1.6 TD returns to the pan, while the AAZ returns to the block. They both feed oil to the turbo from the top of the filter housing. I measured up and went down to the hydraulic shop. They made me a nice stainless braided hose (About $25) and even had the fittings for the housing and the turbo. These are the drain fittings needed for an AAZ. The bagged fittings are turbo-specific and go on the turbo. The outside one foes into the block. Once again, a simple stainless braided hose attaches the two.
