    Where could I plug the hose end to (6.2L)? Looks like the PO had it hooked up somewhere cuz there is oil in the plastic line. It is disonnected now, but I cannot find any place where it would have gone:doah: Need to keep an eye on the pressure:o

    Anyone have a pic? I think I know which one you are talking about Rene. I can take a pic later when I get off work and then let you guys tell me if it is the right one:)

    If my memory serves it's towards the drivers side a little. When I bought the ATS turbo set-up a while back I recall that was where the oil feed line was coming off of...and the engine on the stand that had the turbo had the line teed there. One feed line to the turbo, and the other to the mech guage.
