Default need opinions on oil drain route

So I'm mocking up my turbo and ran into a small problem. I got a drain kit from fast turbo and I don't know if it's going to work. It's super short. I have the original fitting for the turbo and rubber hose I was going to use before I ordered the fast turbo kit. I could really use some advice on which route to go.

Fast Turbo fitting

original fitting




Option 2 with rubber hose



Option 3 rubber house with AN fitting in pan

So get a new hose the proper length..

The flow looks to be ok..

I mean obviously I will cut the braided hose. I didn't know if the angle would be ok or only using like 2 inches of hose between fittings

Drop option 1. It'll be a pain to get on since the hose is so short.

Go with option 3 . . . better to have the taper seal of the AN fitting on the bottom.

Yeah, I think option 3 would probably be the easiest. Any real issues you'd have would probably be with kinks but the bend in the fitting should help alleviate that possibility. I just went with barbs and hose and there is a slight kink, but not enough to restrict flow so I kept it.

I think Im leaning towards option 3. I feel like there would be alot of pressure on the braided hose using such a short length. It's not super flexible

i dont know if you have the hose specs but each hose has a minimum bend radius (tightest bend you can make before kinking) and minimum length specs.

Handling such a short length of that braided stuff while still trying to keep it together would be a pain in the butt.

I search fast-turbo's website and there's no specs on the hose.

I think option 3 looks like the best solution at this point.

What Psi usually comes from an oil return

For most of the turbos I've had experience with, you don't want any pressure in the return which is why they are usually fed with 3/16" line and have a drain line size of 5/8"

I don't know of anyone who has hooked up a pressure gauge to their return line but I'd say you would ideally want 0psi in the return and *might* be able to get away with a psi or two.

ok so I shouldn't need to worry about the hose blowing off. I guess I didn't think about it being gravity fed.

You'll be fine so long as there's no major kinks. I have a slight kink in mine and it's fine.

Here is my drain line. I had issues with the turbo hanging super low. A lot of people told me this set up wouldn't work and that it would smoke and blah blah blah. Well it doesn't. I put about 4,000 miles on it last summer with no problems.

what kind of traction bar is that and did you notice a difference with it? My buddy has one that he wants to sell me for $50. Can't remember who makes it but it's a good company. Looks just like that

It's a full race traction bar. I put it on before my turbo kit and at the same time that I went over the entire suspension so its hard to say how much of a difference I notice.

But I was turbo all last summer and didnt have any problems with wheel hop on hard launches.

I haven't met many people running them around here. For $50 it's hard to pass up

Stainless steel lines are a bi**h! I would order a foot of nylon braided line and use that. Only about $3-$4 on ebay shipped.
