you can still use the stock return fitting, it's just not as great as going straight down. It may require using a worm clap or two on the 180 bend you'll have to make so the line doesn't crimp itself. But it shouldn't be a big deal.

Ah, so wrap a few clamps around the bend location to keep it from crimping up there. I get it. I'll probably do that for the initial install and then look at modifying the fitting. At this point I'm up against the gun as the initial install I plan to do this weekend at a friend's house (he has all the tools and more), so I want it to be drivable by the time we are done this weekend.

I did get two feet of the silicone hose that ATP Turbo sells, so I should have enough to play around with.

does your friend have a welder? the easiest thing would be to hack the pipe off the flange, then hack off the curved part of the pipe, then weld the straight piece you're left with back on, clamp the hose to that.

free and easy (if you have a welder)

Not sure if he has a welder. One of my other friends has one.

Thanks Braineack,

If the TD05 kit will fit the Greddy then that sounds like the best solution

You get the flange for the drain, 2 feet of hose, and the flange for the pan too

sounds like P/N TA008 it is...
