Hi all, imp in the middle of my turbo install and after looking at what’s involved with removing the oil pan I would rather not have to. Is there any other way to attach the return line without welding a bung to the pan? I was thinking about using epoxy putty to attach a flange, but im afraid it could crack and that would really suck

theres no other way and if your willing to take a change with your motor you should just throw some dirt in the thing and take your chances because thats really what your risking. taking an oil pan off shouldnt take more than an hour and $15 in gaskets. its not that big of a deal to risk your motor on just do it right, by taking the pan off and welding a bung in.

just do it right the first time and take off the hole thing. Really the bigest problem with leaving it on would be metal shavings in your engine. Which, last time i checked, would suck major. I just put mine back on last night and it's really not as hard as it seems. Have fun.

Ok, well I appreciate the help(and criticism) but I found a few people who have used jb weld with no problems. I already attached the outlet and it is very solid, there is no strain or tension on it at all so it should be fine. I know some of you will blast me for it, but if that’s what floats your boat then have at it 8). Anyways I should be done with the install in about 2 weeks. As soon as I get the APEXi SAFC2 and AVC-R wired in im gonna take it in for dyno tuning. Ill post pics of everything when im done. Peace

To get past the metal shavings I used axel grease to coat the drill bit, almost all the shavings stuck to the grease and the little that did end up in the pan I was able to remove with a magnet. I also poured in some used oil and used a magnetic drain plug . When I drained the used oil I found one small shaving, the grease really did the trick!:thumbsup
