Hi, i am new here and just started installing my on3 kit. I was just wondering whats the best way to tap the oil pan? Should i take it off the car or can i do it on the car? Thanks.

This can be done just fine with the engine and pan in the car. Do some looking on the Vortec site and follw the directions there. I pulled my pan and had a bung welded on since the motor was already out.

It is very simple to do with everything in the vehicle. Just take your time and use a variety of punches. Vortec has a diagram of it on their website under the tech area. It makes it very simple.

I used a sharp pointed punch to start the hole and brass plumbob for the rest. It has a nice taper but not to long. Oh ya, and I used the measurements on the Vortech site.

Don't forget to grease up the tap very well to catch oil shavings. Like others have said, the instructions on the Vortech site has good information.
