Drilling/Taping Oil Filter Head

As I was claning up the oil cooler ends, I noticed that on the filter head where I had my supply line for the primary charger hooked up, the 1/8" port is on the un-filtered side. Probably not the best for the charger to be getting un-filtered oil. So would there be a problem drilling and taping the filtered side of the filter head or would it cause issues with supplying the main galleys with oil?

Thought about that but it is still only a 1/4" diameter hole when I realy think it should be at least 3/8" feeding it.

Also thought about feeding it from the hpop resivoir, as it is a little closer in location, and then running a 3/8" auxillary feed line to the hpop res. but that still leaves me with where to draw the oil from and not cause oil starvation.

Re: Drilling/Taping Oil Filter Head

is it possible to have too much oil to a turbo, as to create a drain problem? I was planning on using the 1/8 port for mine.

Im sure it is possible but we have always ran a 3/8 line for the big chargers on the pulling tractor and havnt had a problem.

Re: Drilling/Taping Oil Filter Head

ah, i was looking at the oil inlet on my 47 and when you look careful down in there, the holes are amazingly small. What size line you plan on running? I was planning on -4 feed, and a -10 drain.

Re: Drilling/Taping Oil Filter Head

Ive got -6 (3/8) feed line and 1" return directly to the pan. My secondary charger is 3/8 feed as well, and 3/4 return to the factory fuel pump hole in the valley and that seems to be fine too.

Re: Drilling/Taping Oil Filter Head

Some turbos have a restricter in the oil inlet side. Use as big and as straight of a return as you can. I had a -4 on the stang feed and number 10 on the return.

If the turbo is getting too much oil, you can also install a restrictor if they are not equipped with one. Biggest thing is the drain being big and straight as possible like Aljay said.

Re: Drilling/Taping Oil Filter Head

The stock oil feed port and a -4 line should be adequate for most singles shouldn't it? This has me thinking because the feed passage itself is not very big, maybe 3/16", so I wouldn't think a -6 line would help me?
