12V Power source near main fuse box

Hey everyone,

Looking for a good Key on engine on 12v power source near the main fuse block under hood or just under the dash somewhere on the drivers side to trigger my oil scavenge pump on startup for my twin turbo setup. Any suggestions? Im installing this on my 01 GTS just for reference.

I used this and mounted it next to the main fuse assembly. Pretty handy.

Lunchbox, I have a fuse box like Eric posted above switched on by a relay and mounted under the dash. Its convenient to have this to power add-ons like WBO2 sensors, additional gauges, and controllers.
I pulled off the lower steering column cover and found the wires going to the ignition switch. I used a test light to poke around in the wires while turning the key on and see when it would light up. Then I just spliced into it for the relay on my fuse box.

Yeah i figured id have to do something similar. Thought maybe someone had a "here use this fuse in the box as its worked for me" but, no big deal. Sounds like i was right in thinking that was probably the way to go.

Thanks for the suggestions everyone, ill get to work.

Do not have the service manual on me, but just search the fuse panel for a blank hole. Sometimes there is a blank with an 12V input lead but no output lead.

So just thought id bump this and post something that maybe can be used by someone who may travel these same steps later on.

I picked up a time delay relay to ensure the oil return pump stays running after the car is off briefly instead of wiring in some hacky turbo timer. I didnt want to go the turbo timer route because i'd have no place to cleanly mount inside the car where it was accessible, yet out of the way that i was happy with.

This should do the trick and is adjustable. Just wire it up with a relay socket and fused power and you're done.
