"Although, If you decide to tap the block, make sure the drain line is about the normal oil level with the car not running, this will ensure that the turbo and lines will drain completely and you won't worry about oil gumming inside the turbo when the car is cooling... which is bad, And if your going through all that trouble of installing a turbo, a Preluber system should be in order also, which helps cool the oil easier, and less wear on the motor during startup.

Happy Volvoing!"

THIS COMMENT APPLIES ONLY TO THOSE OF YOU WHO ARE WELDING A BUNG TO THE OIL PAN. IT DOES NOT APPLY TO THOSE OF YOU WHO ARE "TAPPING THE BLOCK" AS IT GOES INTO THE PROPPER GALLEYS WHICH ARE ABOVE THE RESERVE LEVEL IN THE PAN.
