No plans since my daughter and family moved from Santa Clara to Cary NC. Will be in Cary for a week during either Thanksgiving or Christmas. Will need a few things there though like a shop vacuum, place to work, and tall ramps.

I'm using this 3/8 line on my Greddy TDO4H http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/36-Tu...Q5fAccessories

Do I need a restrictor ?

The fitting that threads on to the turbo oil port had a hole about .075 diameter (guess)

Thanks !

I've been using the FM feed line with no restrictor for about 3 years now.

I just used this for my feed line: https://www.miataturbo.net/useful-saved-posts-8/greddy-oil-inlet-upgrade-part-numbers-13306/

Working like a champ.

My $0.02 on the oil pan is that I find it easier to pull the engine for a clutch change anyway, plus there's almost always something you could do with the engine out, like pull the pan, clean the engine, clean the bay, etc.

I was told the banjo fittings would put enough restriction on the feed. So far, no blown seals. Been turbo for 4 years, same Greddy turbo.

Thanks. My feed line would have "some" restriction even if I drill out the piece with the hole in it.

I also have a feed line kit on the way from Artech....

Hang on...am I understanding correctly that people are saying it's ok to drill and tap the pan while it's in situ?

Would this not end up with swarf in the pan?

Or have I missed something?

Cheers,

Dave

Yes, that is what we do. ( I just did mine )

If you think about it, the stuff is heavy and sinks to the bottom of the pan, then it would have to go past the oil screen and the filter and it is aluminum anyway- not too hard.

By and large the idea of any solids in the sump would worry me tbh. But I can see what you're saying.

So only M10 hole to drill? Whats access like?

Sorry I wasn't being very clear.., just asking if there's enough space there is under there to get to it with conventional drill. I don't have compressor/air tools etc.

Just looked up sizes, hole would have to be circa 14-15mm.

If I've misunderstood please put me right. I only ask as I know mine is fed round to the inlet on other side, I was avoiding it as I assumed I would have to drop the sump to do it.

Thanks,

Dave

Some people have mentioned that there is a rubber cap on the side of the block and also say that it can be used to return the oil from the turbo.

I followed conventional wisdom and drilled the pan. There is room but not much. The critical issue is NOT going too deep since it is possible to hit the oil pick up tube and damage it.

This is one of many threads on the topic https://www.miataturbo.net/showthrea...hlight=oil+pan
