i plan on changing my oil return line adapter.
the part that either is welded or screwed into the oil pan from the turbo.


i want one of highest quality and is great to be welded into the oil pan. also if there is a version that i can change out the AN fitting sizes that would be great too. but prefer something that is the best availabe out there.

any link to a site and names would help.

The problem with welding a steel fitting to the oil pan is the difference in materials and thickness.

Do you plan to remove the pan to do this?

Most of us just drill 3 holes in the pan one big for the return and two for the bolts to hold the flange on to the welded nuts on the inside. The nuts have a smaller mass and are easier to get a better weld. The flanges come in different sizes most recommend at least a 1/2AN return. The flange will be 1/2NPT.

I think tuner toys has something. I have been away from this for a while. We use Aluminum pans.

There are a number of places to buy from.

Hey do you plan to do your own welding and have it done. Talk to a pro before you decide which is best.

In one of the sticky's on Honda-Tech there is a link to a fitting site. One of the sponsors I think.

3/8 = -6
1/2 = -8
3/4 = -12

I bought my oil line kit from tunertoys.com. I will post picture soon of the of the fittings. I am waiting for tunertoys to reply for some screw issues.

Screw issues ? just take the stuff to a hardware store and find the bolts that fit. You can find the right stuff and minutes.
