I plan on tapping the block or the oil pan on the voy sometime in the next 2 weeks for my oil return line from the turbo. I was wondering if someone could guide me as to where the best spot for this would be?


if possible could you indicate where on this picture? I really appreciate the help!
THANK YOU
- Mike

Can you use one of those adapters that goes to the oil filter mount that lets you use an external oil cooler?

thats a pressurized location. I am using an adapter there for my oil feed line but the return has to have no back pressure or ill blow the seals in the turbo :sadcry: i just dont know where specifically on the block or pan is a good location. thank you for the responses so far though!

How about returning to the valve cover thru the PCV intake? You could tee into this filtered air line and it should be a low pressure area.

(off subject question... how far south of Erie? A bunch of my early ancestors are buried in the Mill Village town cemetery.)

haha I too thought of that but its above the gravity fed turbo return line. I would need an oil pump and its another thing to go wrong :sadcry: as pointed out by members awhile back.
and I am in Edinboro so I know exactly what you are talking about.
