Wondering if you guys had pictures of where you tapped the oil pan for your ej18ts. I should have figured it out before I pulled the engine but spilled milk and what not....

I saw one by the drain plug but I think that's too low and the line had to double back to go to the turbo.

I wanted to put it at the rear middle before where it dips down into the main bowl but wanted to make sure there'd be clearance there.

Thanks in advance

Honestly its a huge pain to try to snake a oil return tube all the way to the pan. Drill and tap back of the head were oil return would be on a factory turbo car.. Just remember how much stuff is in the way in that area of any Subaru especially turbo cars. Motor mount, exhaust, cross member, oil filter. To the pan has been done but far more work then drilling and tapping the head for brass pipe fittings..

I tapped mine in the oil pan because my subachad up pipe sets the turbo lower than the stock turbo subarus locate it. Mine is tapped in the side just above the baffle.
