Default Fitting for MBC feed in IC tank

I was reading Joe's MBC thread again today and was wondering exactly how the fitting could be installed in the IC end-tank.

Anybody done this? Do you need a bung of some sort? Seems to me that the aluminum might be too thin to provide a sturdy mount if you just drill and tap,

If you have done this...pics please.

3/8" bung, or just drill/tap and screw it in.



it's just like any other AIT sensor on charge piping, except it's on the IC endtank.

Thanks Brain. That's what I envisioned. I'm not totally comfortable with just screwing it in the tank. The bung seems like it'd be more stout and should look better, too.

You've been a great help through my whole install / setup. I'm taking photos and will post everything when it's done. I didn't want to do a real-time build thread as I'm taking the leisurely approach!
