Default Hellcat Hellraiser install

I received my custom turbo kit from Jason Sarratt at Hellcat Customs today!

So to begin, my install is a bit different from HandOverFist's. Mine was a 1200, now it has a 1250 kit from NRHS using dished forged pistons for a lower CR which will allow for running more boost. Also, Jason did a little 'secret sauce' routine on the heads and intake. Still running stock cams, lifters and valves, but now it has new Cometic valve guide seals as the stock ones were leaking.

I really had hoped to finish the install this evening, but had a crappy night and am very tired, so I'm going to finish up tomorrow evening. So far, this is what I've accomplished:

I had received the heads, intake and cam cover last week, so they are already installed and the engine is all ready for the turbo kit:

First, the intake support bracket is mounted using the screw provided, and breather bolts are put in just finger tight at first. Then the screw is torqued down, and the rear breather bolt is also tightened. (Sorry, Jason, I just had to use my fancy breather bolts - but they're plugged because I did the Deimus breather mod):

Next, the dump pipe with support bracket is temporarily bolted up to the turbo housing:

After positioning the turbo with attached dump pipe, it is held on using the front breather bolt. The plenum is attached to the intake using a standard intake gasket, after slipping the silicone intake hose onto the cool side of the turbo. Oil lines are also routed and attached:

Next I snugged up the oil lines, clamped the silicone hose, put on the plenum cover and am now ready to remove the dump pipe, leaving the turbo hanging from the hose so the exhaust header can be installed tomorrow:



So far I've got 1 hour total invested, and the only issue was the small oil line fitting - the J-B Kwik didn't set up, so I removed it and cleaned it up and reinstalled it with some red loctite. Might have to go back and use some fresh J-B so it isn't facing forward.

Do you drill and tap into the oil galleries along the top of the cam cover to get an oil feed to the turbo? If so, then surely it takes more than an hour to reach the stage you're at, as you wouldn't drill and tap the cover in situ. Would you??!!
