Is there enough thread on yours to get a good seal?

She gets properly tight... and I traded the Teflon tape for heaps of Loctite-on-a-stick. If it leaks I'll swap it for epoxy. Zero fucks given.

No one should recommend this pan.

So after cleaning up yesterday's mess I pulled this together - total cost is about $15 Canadian. Unlike the wagon and TBSS decided to run this one under the intake. The oil pressure line is going under here too... but, that's going to have to wait until I get back from a week on the West coast for work.

Back from Vancouver the land of hybrids, EVs, and high dollar exotics. It was 30°C warmer there than here. The streets smell like weed and festering piss too.

Got a little time in the garage today between snowfalls to rig up the turbo oil feed line. A HD hydraulic hose and some more copper line. It was done this way for ease of assembly and availability of materials.

Since I decided to get the flu - I figure the best thing to do while on medication is to spend money.

Ordered up a remote battery disconnect (https://www.summitracing.com/parts/sum-830051), a Griffin high pressure rad cap (since I won't be able to access it once it is tucked inside the stock core support), and some 3/8" and 5/16" rubber fuel injection line (including a new foot of 3/8" submersible line).
