Default How to plug the oil return near the filter?

I tapped my pan since i had the motor out of the car. I got the car with the turbo installed. What are you guys using to plug up the hole used by the loooooong greddy return hose near the oil filter?

You re-use the factory plug.

If you don't have it,you will need to get one from the dealer.

weird, my jdm motor doesnt have anything drilled out there, nor does it have the oil feed hole tapped.

Is it one of those crate motors? Someone here had that happen to them before.

I guess maybe it was, honestly I prefer it. The normal oil feed location would have been nice, but if it means I dont have some gaping hole in my block that I have to put a big rubber stopper on then im all for it.

I thought the main reason we had a feed port was becouse our initial blocks where 323 leavings, and then once the 323T was done, and the initial blocks where used up they made the new blocks without these features.

That would be me. I used a t-fitting off the oil pressure sending unit.
