Instead of the oil filler cap return, why not put the oil return into the threaded inspection cover over the stator and rotor? Then you'd even get some cooling effect from the oil.

well in the old turbo setup I was fearing that the oil wouldn’t have enough downward run off. Which I didn’t want causing the oil to back up the drain line and pushing oil through the seals. For the new turbo setup I will be in fact running the oil drain into the stator cover.

Has anyone ever tried NOS on a CX/GL before?

New Old Stock is expensive. I usually look for good used parts.
Oh, did you mean NOx? ;)

NOS is also trade name for Nitrous Oxide Systems. Acronyms can be confusing!

Yes, Relic hit the nail on the head, nitrous. I hadn't seen any before and was just wondering.

YUP to the juice
Does it make a big difference performance wise? Is it temping fate to use it (risk blowing up the engine)?
