Default Tapping the oil pan

What do you guys think of not tapping the oil pan, but instead drilling a hole just large enough to jam the fitting in and just JB welding the fitting in?

That is how the Stealthmode kits works. The instructions tell you to make the hole just big enough to thread in the fitting they include, and then JB weld it. We've sold hundreds of these kits, and everyone likes them.

I would cover the drill bit with grease and drill slow to help keep metal shavings out of your oil pan. That is of course if your drilling the pan installed on the motor.

good info... hmmm... maybe I should have looked at the paper my stealthmode kit came with. I don't remember seeing any instructions though...

OK, this weekend, oil pan will be coming off and drilled

I'm going to have to rig it so the oil goes straight through from the block to the pan though since I'm not ready to install the turbo. Just wanted to have everything ready. The hard part is deciding where I want to drill because I don't have my downpipe made... but I think if I put it all the way to the right side (if you're looking at the front of the car), my fabbed up downpipe will clear it.

I have the same flange on my greddy kit for the return line drill 3 holes and used some hondabond just for good measure its been 7 months and i've had no problems.The only problem i have with oil leaking on my turbo is the vtec solenoid gasket keeps shitting out on me every 3 weeks with new gasket.

you want to find out where the turbo is going to be a line it up with the drain flange/hole

the drain line is gravity feed so the less restriction the better

.. but personally, i wouldnt tap the oil pan unless you're ready to install

you dont have to rig anything.. they sell rubber caps at napa that go over 5/8" or 3/4" nipples so you can just cap it with a clamp.. and yes take the oil pan off.. i got some shavings in my pan when i did mine and for the life of me i could not get them all out.. my solution was take the oil pan to a manual car wash and spray the shit out of the inside with the high pressure gun.. works like a champ, something for you to keep in mind if your in the same situation..

Just a FYI Makku. If you are using the stealthmode oil line kit an O2 bung is the same thread pitch and size as the fitting you are supposed to JB weld into the pan. So if you want you can actually weld the bung onto the pan and just screw in the barb fitting. Way stronger then JB weld doing it this way.

2 cents tap the oil pan saffer and just weld a bolt around the pan.
