so ive been working on turboing my car for the past week. today was oil line day. i drilled my oil pan and went under the car to pull the oil pressure sender to install my tuner toys fitting. i get it out no prob and install the sender on the fitting. set my torque wrence for 13lbs like the instructions say. screwing half way finger tight i start with the wrench. it was very easy to turn. after a min i was starting to wonder why its not getting harder to turn the wrench. the fucking fitting broke! :shocked:now i have the end of this expensive ass fitting stuck in the oil pressure sender hole.
:hammer:
wtf do i do now? do i have to pull the motor and drill it out and retap that bitch? or is there some way i can get the broken peice out?

damn i was so planing on boosting this weekend.:cockbloc:

thanks in advance

Try an ezout like suggested, shouldn't give you much trouble, i've snapped these fittings into my turbo many times and got them right out with one.

Why nobody uses oil filter sandwiches to get the oil lines from?
the fitting i used was included in the oil line kit i got from tuner toys. i saw the oil filter sandwiches but this was included. i just ordered another tt fitting that im goning to be really careful with. maybe i should have looked more into the oil filter sandwich... how much are they?

thank you all for the support. ive got crome pro and access to a dyno. (maybe). ill post pics when its done, maybe some dyno numbers too.
:beer::beer::beer::beer: until the fitting gets here.

Contact Craig at Tuner Toys. They knowingly had a bad batch of those fittings and tried to weed them all out. He will replace it. Craig is a great guy and I have used tons of those fittings with no issue.
yea craig is a great guy
