OK, I need some advice on this. The drain is a little low on the turbo with the mini ram. Here's where it sits and the tap on the pan. I can cut the bend off the pan to make it a straight shot, but I don't think it's going to be enough to drain. I can't clock the turbo due to the housing hitting the torque mount on the driver's side and not letting it move. Any ideas?

man thats close.
can you clock the center section instead of the whole housing so the drain fitting points at a 45% angle?
id cut that 90 off as well to make it a much straiter shot

i like drunkenmasters idea. clock that thing to a 45* angle or so, cut the 90 off and just use a real short and fat drain. or find a new oil pan and start over?

that's a good idea, I think I may have to loosen the bolts on the manifold to get it to move. I got them all loose on both sides and can't get the center section to move. I'll see what I can do with it tom.

Thanks for the help guys :TU:. Rep has been given to all. OK, dumb question, it shouldn't matter which way I clock it, should it? Sorry, my brain is done from messing with it non stop for the last couple of weeks trying to get it ready to go tune lol.

I had so aluminum tubing laying around and just bent it to the angle I needed and had it welded to the drain flange. I have a 5/8 barb fittting coming off the oil pan. I also clocked the CHRA slightly. Oh, in that first pic it looks like it isnt completely welded but its also welded on the inside.

Actually I havent run it yet. If it smokes then I guess Ill have to re-do the oil pan. Originally I had a ramhorn on there so where I tapped to pan was fine. I have a different mani on there now which places the turbo a lot lower.

since u shorten and u angle the drain flange why u still angle the turbo towards the stump from what i see u did a great job with the drain clock it back and get a longer rubber hose this way the oil would equally feed the turbo if u have a restrictor in the oil line i guess u can picture the oil running down the side off the turbo out the return line not really doing its job on its way out ;;;;;;;;;;;; i could b wrong it might just work for you

Too Much

I think I can make this work, is it going to be too much to have it oil properly?
