Arrow **** Have a BG turbo kit? COME INSIDE!

I am having issues with my earls straight fitting hitting his flange and causing an oil leak because I cannot tighten it all the way. I do not want to have to grind on the flange. Anyone have any pictures they can take of your drain? Most importantly, just the way you have it set up on the turbo itself, not going into the pan.

Thanks in advance!

Not sure what you mean, I know mine was a pain to tighten but I was able to do it.

I just figured it out.. looks like I didn't clock the drain, like a dumbass.

Can I clock the center housing with the turbo bolted into the car? Here are a couple pictures of how it is setup (wrong).

I tried taking a pic but on the car its impossible.

When you say flange do you mean the plate that gets bolted onto the turbo?

Which set needs to be loosened? I'm not sure I want to drill a whole in the frame, I don't believe I will have the length of line to run that and I'm not going through the hastle of putting it together again. I think I can get away with a 15 degree angle or so and keep it outside the frame rail.

The 6 on the exhaust housing and the 6 on the cold side housing..

Be careful when rotating the cold side though, I did and tore the o-ring that was on the inside... and its FAR from a standard o-ring

####, I guess it'll be easier to just pull the turbo off the flange and re-RTV it. Bleh, tomorrow is gonnna be a fun day!
