i dont think you can return the oild through a sandwich plate.. te best way is to tap the oil pan. what i do is start making the hole very small and making it bigger until you get it to just fit. then i add high temp silicone to the thread. then screw it in. then wait till is dries. then add some around the edge in the front and back. then let it dry for a day. and you should be set

show some pics...if youre putting it too low so its below the oil level that will cause a poor seal to leak where if it was above the oil level you might be able to get away with it. Like someone else said, just make the hole a little smaller than the fitting so you can thread it in and jb weld it if you want

that wouldnt help with his oil return line


OP: i know on my turbo kit instructions it recommended using a punch so that all the material that is "pushed"into the pan can be threaded (with the included tap) to help with the oil leak issue. they also recommended teflon tape as was previously mentioned. more jb weld cant hurt either. make sure when you put the fitting in that it seats flush with the wall of the oil pan when your done putting it in as well. got any pics of current install?

Key to making it not leak without using jbweld is to run several beads. Run your first bead then grind it down so there is a shallow v-notch in the bead all the way around. Repeat this three times and if youre good enough at welding it shouldnt leak. Thats what I did with mine and it worked like a charm.
