I think any higher and it won't drain back from the turbo. Usually people drain to the pan, but I thought this would work.
Be happy you didn't buy the Holley 302-3 pan with the drains expecting them to be useful on a G body. You also could drain back to the truck pan oil sensor port, it's a pretty common metric thread.

It will work, you just need a 90° instead of a straight.... View attachment 103421

I have a cts-v pan and thought about using the oil level sensor port and in was told I couldn't use that because it was too high or something like that.

Interesting, seems like it would work to me. I could be totally wrong though. I might have to look into it myself.

Weld on. I can't take credit though. I bought an ICT billet one. If one drain is good, two must be better, :sneaky:.... View attachment 103425
I just emailed ICT Billet about purchasing the fitting separately since it's not listed on their site and they do sell it as a phone in order for $7.99!

Just some food for thought!
