Hey everyone - I am looking for thoughts on the routing of my oil drain, specifically the angle and if it is ok the way it sits currently. I have fairly high blow by due to a poorly sealed cylinder 2 (rings) and suspect that perhaps I may also be getting oil in the intake due to poor drainage and higher crank pressures.

Thanks!

Could you elaborate and possibly suggest how i should change it to be proper?

Needs to be more angled up, so oil just doesnt sit in the line and actually drains into the pan better.

That looks like the APR Stage 3 kit oil drain line... the one on my B6 looks quite a bit like that.

Ok thanks. Thinking i'll probably need to build a new line since this doesn't appear be able to be changed.

This is correct, that's exactly where it came from, a B6 APR Stage 3 kit. So, they sent out lines that are improper or is there that stark of a difference between the B5 and B6?

Well the good news is the oil drain is not high pressure hose. So you can build your own using fittings and have it all clamped together.

Thank you for the link, super helpful!!

Silly question, the threads on the adapter for the oil pan and outlet on the turbo, are they AN?

I would order a 45* -10AN hose end. Cut the drain line shorter and put the new hose end on. Here's mine for reference. The braided is easy to do yourself.

I would not reuse the APR line. Its VERY small in diameter. It looks like there is a reducer adapter for the line in there. You have to measure the bases on both the turbo and the oilpan fitting and build on those. Most likely they are -10 AN

Summit racing is also really great and has more selection. I am looking for a good hose material for you. One sec.

I believe they would be the same. My B6's APR Stage 3+ line looks just like that. Kind of annoying actually because it sits so low that it's prone to impact damage. And it doesn't let the AC crossover pipe sit up where it should sit.

So do I want the standard summit -10AN end or the PTFE version? Kind of my first time building lines.. lol

Braided lines are rather simple to make. Fragola is my new favored brand of fittings. Here is standard line sizes and pics of my oil drain.

Oil feed: -4an (CT needs -3an with their restrictor, due to our high oil pressure output)
Oil drain: -10an
Coolant feed: -6an
Coolant return: -6an

If you have PTFE lines you need the PTFW hose ends. If you use standard braided AN hose, you use the standard hose ends.

Makes sense. I suppose I should have asked the question about which lines I should be using vs which ends. I see a lot of the lines rated for very high psi which I don't need. Any suggestions?

Edited my post above, with Fragola being my preferred fitting of choice right now. As for lines, PTFE is not important when it comes to oil lines. That is geared more towards corrosive fuels to rubber when people use braided lines for their fuel setups.

I personally picked up ebay ptfe lines for really cheap to be used on an e85 project, and quality seemed decent. Didn't get a chance to try them out yet, because project didn't really start yet. Picked up rubber lining by accident at first, and the quality really seems no different than even Summit Racing brand at a fraction of the cost. Ebay def has cheap crap...but I sort of got tired of paying extra just for some damn name I quite frankly give two sh*ts about. So, I stopped!
