I was always under the impression that the Jerry Cam was ground for N/A applications. Will it still be beneficial in a boosted application?
I talked to Jerry about it a while back and it seems so as it basically the cam puts the valve timing where it "should be" to make the most power, rather than run clean for emissionsI was always under the impression that the Jerry Cam was ground for N/A applications.

Yes Billy who just did his w Jerry has a Jerry cam and noticed it had a better fuel air mix w that cam vs stock. Also said it had a better/smoother power as wellI talked to Jerry about it a while back and it seems so as it basically the cam puts the valve timing where it "should be" to make the most power, rather than run clean for emissions
So the oil cooler lines have already been decided for supply and return, as well as water supply and return. We'll on paper at least.Sounds sweet and good luck. I will be especially interested in what you do with oil supply and return lines as well as intercooler mounting and exhaust setup.
You only need 3 openings, one for the switch and one for the feed line and one end plugs into the block. On mine my switch plugs right into the side of the block on the passenger side. I dont have any adapter at all on mine. Is yours different. I wasnt gonna plug into the one on the oil filter housing thats not a switch thats the oil pressure sending unitThat looks very similar to the stock one, maybe with different thread pitches.
Are you going to sacrifice the oil pressure switch or sender or drill another hole in it? That only has two outlets and one will obviously be used for turbo oil supply.
This is the line w the adapter needed I am using, I am gonna run it over the valve cover to the top of the turbo since the there is no "outlet" oil source on the driver side of the blockYou are right -- I was thinking of the C223T that I just built (the 4ZE1 build was almost 2 years ago) where the oil pressure sensor and switch are on the same stalk. Either of those two locations should be fine to supply oil to the turbo as they directly connect to the oil galley. I'd probably use the switch as the oil supply rather than the sensor as it goes directly into the block and seems to be in a more favorable location.
Two additional thoughts:
1. Is the oil pressure switch hole the only place on the block that goes directly into the oil galley? I ask as the diesel motor had about 4-5 places like that which were all plugged. Sounds like your motor is on a stand so maybe you could check that out. Just thinking maybe you could avoid the adapter by utilizing an unused port
2. I recall that since the oil galley is on the pass side, there are none of those "oil ports" on the driver's side where the turbo would be... are you planning on running a soft or hard line and are you thinking of going around the back of the motor, over the valve cover, or what. Just thinking that routing might affect where you decide to tap in to the oil supply
