that's why it needs to be a consistent "down" angle/bow so the oil doesn't puddle. you should use a 30* fitting at the bottom of the drain and shorten your hose slightly.
^^that explains it. i got my dei wrap for my return hose. and might get a t3 flange welded on the manifold and get rid of the adapter altogether.

its actually mounted directly to the block now like this but
you can check out my oil lines in my thread here, http://www.clublexus.com/forums/perf...-thread-7.html

the oil filter adaper is by derale part number 15703
http://www.jegs.com/i/Derale/259/15703/10002/-1


the oil filer mount is by earls, billet temp a cure filer mount 2178
http://www.jegs.com/i/Earl%26%23039%.../2178/10002/-1

I show jegs because they are down the street from me and that's where i got it. I am not using a thermostat of the oil also becuase my car is pretty much track only and I get enough time to let the oil warm up however derale makes one for $40 some bucks that should work

http://www.jegs.com/i/Derale/259/25719/10002/-1

soarer130y, IIRC its 3 or 4 foot but I cant remember at the moment.

I'll tell you one thing. The diesel guys talking about -10 AN lines possibly being too small for an oil drain isn't far fetched.

Check out youtube and search for turbo oil drain videos. There's a couple videos where the people actually let the oil flow into a bucket or bottle, while the car is running and it's amazing how much oil actually flows out of the drain. It's not a small trickle, it's ALOT and when you rev the motor, it's even more!

This is actually a really cool looking oil drain.

very good info! i was trying to explain that same concept, and that ANY puddling will back up quickly and create pressure, and pressure leaks it leaks out the CHRA seals.

we need to make a "single turbo" or "advanced tuning" section. this performance/maintenance section is like a catch-all

Problem with adding that discrete a sub forum is that it gets a LOT less views (fewer answers, less education for other members that want to learn, etc). What we can do is create a more discrete section of the FAQ / DIY sticky for the best threads you want to nominate to go in there. Maybe even do a second mirrored one specific for FI in the performance section
