No, get a 90 degree -10 an then your good.
this is correct. use little line as possible. and do not kink it in any way. a 90 degree off the fitting you have and a few inches of braided line to the drain flange on your turbo

shorten the nipple coming off the turbo drain as much as u can but still be able to get a hose clamp on it.

ditch the AN fittings.


JB weld a 5/8ths barbed fitting into your pan, not at the very top but maybe 1.5" down. it will still be above oil level.


then get heater hose and make it work. get one of those tube bending coil sleeve things that lets u bend heater hose without kinking it.

try clocking the center section so it points towards the oil pan instead of away. that might help too.


i think u can easily make it work.

Exactly.


I find that style to be way easier and simpler than the A/N fittings style. I had it like that on my turbo D with a fuel hose and I had absolutely no leaks coming from there. I can post pics of my oil pan if you want.

Go ahead n post pix there always welcome. I was just hoping touse the 10an fitting since I paid so much for it. The place ripped me off and overcharged me. But let me see what others have done. Also it gotta be weldless.

Another member on here since me some pix and some very good information on installing the drain ill post that information when I get to my pc. But he mainly said to make the drain flow into the a main cap so that when the motor is running it doesn't kick oil into the drain hurting the flow of it

Looks like your engine drains oil naturally hehe. Fix those leaks!!
haha no leaks the other owner never cleaned the damn car. I clean the inside when i first got it and i found a fll walmart bag of trash inside the car pens. candy, dirt, paper and fries. I only had it about 2months and just havent gotten around to cleaning the motor. I gotta buy some purple power or simple green.

crxdonwon was kind enough to send me these pix. Also said "You want the drain almost directly in front of the main cap. that way you are not restriction flow with the slosh of the crank rotating."

These things kick ass. Had mine like this for years now. Although, I end up tearing the car down once a year, so the heater hose gets replaced once a year. But its like 2 bucks, reuse everything else.
