Yes, I quoted myself.
So the AN based drain line would have the following....
AN Flange on turbo -> straight AN to hose fitting -> length of Hose -> straight an to hose fitting -> AN male 45 to 1/2NPT fitting into the pan.
Of course, if I put the 45 on the hose end, and put a straight into the pan, installation will be a little easier, because you won't have to worry about making sure the 45 points in the right direction as you tighten it into the pan.
AN Flange on turbo -> straight AN to hose fitting -> length of Hose -> an 45 to hose fitting -> AN male straight to 1/2NPT fitting into the pan.
The economy drain line would be much simpler...
NPT Flange on turbo -> straight NPT to push fit hose fitting -> length of Hose -> push fit hose to 1/2NPT fitting into the pan.
Or to keep from having to disconnect the drain line by taking the drain flange off the turbo we could keep the an flange and make that a convenient place to disconnect the drain line.
AN Flange on turbo -> straight an to push fit hose fitting -> length of Hose -> push fit hose to 1/2NPT fitting into the pan.
Let me know what you guys think of these potential combinations. Also, what drain flange sizes you are dealing with.
Also, in looking at the FAQ, we noticed that in the picture of the drain line, that a straight fitting was used in the existing location. I also noticed, was that the marked location that says "Tap Here" is quite a bit forward from the location actually used in the picture.
- Is there room at both locations to use a straight in fitting, or does this need to be a 45 or 90 to remain AC friendly?
- Why should we choose one location over the other?
When we get these last few things nailed down, we should be able to start offering a kit.
Thanks for the Miata edification guys!
