Default Chinese t28 Turbo Oil Drain Help

I Just found out my oil drain flange does not it. It did not come with the turbo, but it was listed for the t28. Does anyone know were I can get an oil return that will fit this turbo. The gasket on the right came with the turbo, and is what I actually need. I need a return that will fit the gasket. If I had hair I would be pulling it out right about now. I thought I would be seeing boost tonight.

I have one laying around I could sell you, it is tapped to accept a 3/8" NPT fitting. Measure your flange mount from the center of 1 bolt hole to the center of the other bolt hole. If mine measures the same, I will ship it to you priority mail or however you prefer / pay for.

Send me or post dimensions and I will see if our Chinese sized drain flange will fit. I need dimensions from center line bolt hole to center line bolt hole.

The holes from center to center are 39mm on the two bolt holes. With the drain hole being apx 19mm from the center of the bolt holes to the center of the drain hole.

BTW Following a suggestion, I tryed slotting the bolt holes on the t28 flange, and it now bolts up. But just in case it leaks it would be nice to know the proper part is available.

I got an email last night from CXracing / CX Motorports, the guys I purchased the turbo from. They do not offer a drain kit, or even a flange for this turbo. Just an FYI.

The 39 mm flange is a standard Garrett Oil Drain size. The Chinese Oil Drain Flanges that we have are 44 mm. We have both in stock, if needed.

The gaskets look close, but I had to slot the flange by about 1/4" on each hole to get it to bolt up. The holes are actually closer together than the standard garrett flange based on the gasket I received.

BTW I spoke with Kevin at CX, and he found a drain flange, so the do have one for the turbo.
