HPOP STC- Location???

Stupid question Im sure. When I was gathering parts for my current project, I mentioned the HPOP fitting issue to the parts guy, and he grabbed their PSD tech. He grabbed me a kit off the shelf and said thats what I need. Its a little bag, with a bunch of o rings, a smaller bag with a couple o rings and a gasket, a large rubber o ring type gasket (rectangular shape), some plastic wing nuts (WTF?), and a metal connector with a threaded end and some mounting holes.

Ok, heres the question. Where the hell is the high pressure oil pump? Is it under the plate where the turbo drain tube plugs into? Does it sound like he gave me the right kit? Can someone shed some light on this subject?

Thats the one! Looks like Ill have it easy. My heads are on right now, thats it. No exhaust in the way, no oil cooler, no turbo, no intake. Sweet. This will be on the agenda first tomorrow!

Is this kit a one time fix? Or have people had failures after installing this update kit?

I put the new fitting in yesterday after I got done with the heads and valvetrain. That stupid plastic piece they give you to line everything up has quite a bit of slop in it! There is about 1/8" of play in the plastic bolts to the fitting.

Anyone else have trouble getting it lined up? It took me about 3 tries of adjusting the plastic guide, to get the two small bolts lined up correctly in the back (the two that hold the new fitting to the tube in the block). At first it seemed like you should have the fitting cranked into the pump housing all the way, then crank down the locking nut. But if you do, the two bolts in the rear end up being to far away, and wont catch the threads.

I ended up doing it like this: lightly seat the fitting by hand, install pump in the truck, snug all the bolts down, remove the pump, put the plastic guide on with the plastic bolts, then crank the lock nut down. Then reinstall the pump and make sure all the bolts thread in and line up correctly. I made sure I had this part right. I dont want to be ripping it apart again.

Anyone have another install method to get the new STC fitting (which really isnt a snap-to-connect fitting any longer) lined up with the transfer tube (for lack of the proper term) inside the block above the cam gear?

Also, is the old style fitting supposed to wiggle and be loose? When I pulled it out, I was surprised all the slop there is in that fitting. Or is the sign of a failed or failing fitting?
