twin oil feed/drain question...

Alright I've been piecing together my kit for awhile now, and finally have everything I need to complete my set-up, but the last thing I've gotta tackle is the oil feed/drain situation. It's a twin t4 setup with b&g headers, and stock oil pan.

So I need someone to point me in the right direction. What's the easiest yet efficient way to run my lines, and what size, and where to purchase the fittings/lines...also what's easier with regards to the oil pan and getting a bung welded in? I don't have access to a welder or a picker...

Any advise or direction would be awesome, and I have used the search button...

You can drill and tap the factory oil press log. Tap them 1/8 NPT and get 2 1/8NPT-3an fittings for the feed.

For the drain, it sounds like you are going to have to use the punch and tap method if you are not willing to pull the pan.

In order to pull the pan, do I have to slightly lift the motor out? Or is it easier to hold the motor and lower the kmember?

Check the vortech website for how to punch and tap the pan. Way easier than pulling it on a fox.

3/8npt is awfull small for t4's.
Looks like a good idea though.
If you could get em in atleast a 1/2" or 5/8" that would be nice.
