I need to know what size punch I need in order to tap the oil pan to install the oil drain.. also need to know what size oil drain fittings I need so if anybody knows please post up

I've tried cartech and all they can say is i'll fax you over a manual but twice now i've called and never received a manual.. and I actually have a manual and I don't know if it's missing pages or what but no mention of what size tap to use or what size fittings for the turbo drain to pan so any help would be much appreciated

good idea

so looking over an old manual for a vortech supercharger i'll need :

8# stainless hose clamps (2 of them)
3/8" NPT x 1/2" striaght hose barb
1/2"x28" oil drain hose

so I can pretty much just pick this up after I measure to see how much hose I will need right?

also will need a small punch to open the pan up to a 9/16" diameter then tap the hole with a 3/8" NPT tap approximately 1/4" deep.. apply a small amount of silicone sealer on all the new threads and im done correct?

For some reason I am thinking Cartech's came with a 5/8" hose but it has been many years since I had one of their kits and I might be wrong. I used a -10 AN line on my old Cartech kit but I also shoe horned a t-netics T72 on the kit as well.
hmm I know just about nothing when it comes to AN lines and sizing so this is going to get interested :)

and this kit has a te62 turbo on it if that matters

For the punch, just pick up a cheap…stubby plumb bob from your local hardware store. You need to flare it just enough to fit the NPT fitting properly…yet not go so deep as to hit the main cap with the punch itself.

Makes sense because I think an AN10 is close to 5/8. It though does not have to be exactly what you mentioned because someone could go the AN line route instead. Have you gotten everything on the car?
cartech said that it's a 3/8" npt by 5/8" and if I wanted to go -an i'd need -10 but weld the fitting to the pan.

and no haven't gotten it all buttoned up yet.. doing a qa tubular k member swap at the same time now since the oil pan had to get yanked. Still don't have a clue how the inlet elbow gets hooked up.. it has two ports on it

Ok we got the pan squared away.. any chance of you having install directions for this damn kit? I have no clue how the vacuum routing goes for the wastegate and bypass valve plus the 4" inlet elbow for the turbo has two ports on it.. one im pretty sure is for the bypass valve but no clue what the other is for :curses:

Vacuum on the wastegate you should be able to find diagrams for online since it is not specific to cartech. I do not know on the inlet tube because I did not run a mass air at that time so did not use that tube. I had the tube up until about a year ago and honest do not recall two holes in it like you are describing.

It looks like something rigged up for the pcv system.

I was thinking that since that used to be such a common thing to do but maybe my eyes are playing tricks on me but that nippled looks rather large for such a use.
The larger the better. It would give you more ventilation without as much risk of sucking oil into the inlet.
