Oil Drain

Is there any place other than the valve cover or oil pan to drain the oil from the first stage turbo? Valve cover is above the drain on the turbo so thats out and I rally dont want to yank the motor to take the pan off an drill a hole.

Thanks

Re: Oil Drain

Why do you have to drill a hole in the pan?

Re: Oil Drain

to drain the oil off the turbo you should put it in the pan, normally at least a 35-45* drop. if you have access to a tig and some experience you could drill a hole and tig a bung in without pulling the pan.

Re: Oil Drain

I checked my spare block. Driver's side has 2 ports just above oil pan lip that dump into pan, but passenger side has nothing.
Have to go to pan...

Re: Oil Drain

I put a vortech turbo on my mustang years back and they did not want you to drill into the pan, They said to use a punch and knock a hole in the pan above the oil in the pan and keep using a little bigger punch untill you get close to the size hole you want,this way makes more metal on the inside as it rolls the metal inward then pack a tap with grease and tap the hole to desired size and install fitting with teflon tape. Make your hole above oil line in pan and make the hole angle down for oil flow, It works really well if you take your time

Re: Oil Drain

I see what you are talking about now, sorry.

Kip's idea sounds like the way to go.
