Good deal. Can you run the advanced flow cover with this upgrade?

FP makes a anti-surge cover for the 71HTA turbo. I'm sure it'll cost a little extra to get

are stock oil lines sufficient or an upgrade is required?

Michael.

I did 350whp on 91oct and very minimal mods. Small cams, too. 400 on e85. Both tunes were for the track, so very conservative. Full boost around 3600rpm. Instant power. Most fun I've had in my car.
Cone filter
Fmic
Licp
1450cc Injectors (very low duty cycle)
255 fuel pump.

Stock oil feed lines.

Yes stock oil and coolant feed and return lines are all you need. Don't bother with anything else

I've talked to both Michael and Robert from FP, they both have told me the stock line is more than capable!

There's no need. It's a stock turbo with a larger comp wheel. It doesn't need a different feed.
+1 on speaking to the fellas @ FP. They told me the same thing.
That's part of the reason why this swap is so simple and cheap.

I'm paying $120/mo for one. 41yo, no driving record. You're not that far off.

You need to play closer attention. It comes with a 10.5 housing

"We've even shoved it into the tried and true 10.5 MHI so it's a true stock appearing bolt on solution."

Maybe you do too. LOL. I said "my" housings. Meaning I have two already, so I'd like to have them put the green into one.
Last time I called, they weren't using this CHRA, only the older green.
