How did you guys route the oil return? pictures? I may can angle it witha 45 and go straight down. My concern is the heat of the manifold. I could go through the frame but I feel like it wouldn't drain well even though it would still be a at downward slope. Thanks!

Did anybody do theres like this? Just seems to me that the oil return line will not flow great since it is not a downward continuous slope. its more of a J bend than anything.

it shouldnt matter. as long as the highest point of the oil draining from is higher then where it is draining into, gravety will do its job

Make sure you make that hole bigger in the frame and put a rubber grommet around the hose so it doesn't wear through.

I believe that is how B&G recommends you run the drain hole.

+1 Make the hole bigger...and I'd go so far as to pick up some small diameter vacuum line and slice it down the middle to make a "C" shape. You can then run it along the hold to provide a nice barrier to the sharp sheet metal.

yea thats what I planned to do millhouse. I wanted the oil section to be vertical as possible since you are only allowed a move it on a 30 degree plane before you have to worry about oil draining problems.

mine was ran just like that for 2 years with no probs. used a 1" or 1 1/2" hole saw in the metal and about the same size drain hose
