I really need some suggestions here. I'm not sure what to do, I want to be able to rule this out as a possible issue.

Currently I'm using an ATP oil pan adapter, into a 45, into a 10AN braided line that goes behind the motor mount, then straight up to the turbo.

That 45 is angled back a little bit, as you can see. It's hard to get pics of it from the other angles. You can see a little bit of the line in the background.


What are other people running on this? I'm assuming everyone's using the ATP adapter, I don't know of any other options. The only other thing I can think of thats a surefire way to eliminate any possible issues is a pump but that is fairly pricey. Like this:

Thoughts?

Awesome..thanks for the pics.

I just don't see how the oil can get out though, for either of ours.

Well here is a picture of my pan with the AN fitting in the back ground, even mine has a small straight fitting on it.

i need to redo my eliminator oil line. Those stupid studs you use on the turbo are absolute crap. Is there any other way?

I just checked from my order with ATP...my oil return line is 24", which seems quite a bit longer than everyone elses. It's not straight vertical drop to the pan, it goes straight down then around a 35-40 degree angle into the an fitting on the pan adapter.

The second time around we drilled out a larger hole on the stock return line and used regular bolts.

In your case I would fab up a custom line. I promise that will make install/removal so much easier.

were you able to install the regular return line with the turbo still on the car when you drilled out the holes? do you know what size bolts you used? I'm gonna takle this this weekend.

I honestly don't remember the bolt size. The studs that from ATP are STEP DOWN. They go from something like 10mm to 8mm or something like that.

We just drilled the hole through the stock return line so that it would accept the larger size (probably 10mm) and then installed it (with the turbo already in the car).
