Default FM Oil return hard line sump location

In the process of putting together a 1.6 forged build using an existing FM II Turbo (Garrett 2560) on a FM manifold,

Plan on replacing the rubber return with a FM hard line. Can anyone supply measurements on where exactly to drill and tap my spare sump rather than me waiting until I pull the existing motor to get the manifold and turbo to use as a guide.

Thanks

Ask FM. They will tell you.

The FM hardline stops short of the pan and the final section is a rubber hose. That gives you a bit of flexibility so that it doesn't have to be precise, but you still want to be very close. The hard pipe is thick steel and very difficult to bend.

But yeah, ask FM.

I think even FM will advise you to wait till you have the hard line in your hands. That way, you can bolt it in place and measure exactly where to drill the hole.

Did think this might be the case was hoping to have the motor as complete as possible prior to fitting guess it will have to wait.

thanks for the input
