Default Greddy kit oil drain flange clarrification question.

im getting ready to tap my oil pan for the oil return and im planning on doing steel braided lines for it.

i know the sizes r specified in braineacks faq, but i had a question on the flange i should buy.

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Funct...spagenameZWDVW

this is the one i've been people pointing at to get, but it doesn't mention the td04h-15g turbo just the 16g. is the 15g and 16g the same ? will this flange work for my application.

thanks
Scott

I bought one of those from Function7 - I believe that the TD05 flange fits the TD04, but I can measure mine tomorrow, if you can wait.

Make sure you tap the pan with the same size NPT fitting that the flange uses - I tapped my pan for a 1/2" NPT fitting, and had to drill/tap the Function7 fitting to use a 1/2" hose as a result. I've got pictures of it here, if it helps: click

In the end, I used a the fitting from the DSM car: made it simpler to route it towards the pan with my setup.

Cheers!

Jeff

ATP has the correct flange with the holes slotted slightly to fit quite a few different turbos. Its machined 1/2" NPT.

to screw onto the oil pan area where i will tap the oil pan for 3/8" npt.

does this sound like a solid setup ?

What I did was I simply cut that 45 degree pipe off and welded on an adapter - SORTED !
