I did this for my engine rebuild because my original drain pipe was ruined, new ones are (AFAIK) NLA and finding a secondhand one that's not split can be difficult.

So, if anyone else wants one:

I'd like one of those :)

Keep one aside for me and I'll sort it when I come back from Germany.

Does this one make it easier to get the bolts into the flange on the turbo side

As the standard one makes me punch things as it takes ages to line it up and get it started when on the car

Will do Andy.

Fitting is a piece of tripe n onions with the engine out of the car ;)

You can bend it about more than the original tin pipes to get it into alignment and the bolt clearance through the flange is a touch larger so alignment to get the bolt started isn't as critical.

This is the easiest way I've found to fit these. The biggest obstacle is getting past the lip on the steel sump (at least on the 820), so bend hose towards the block and slip onto the sump studs, but don't fit the nuts yet. Bend the hose again to reduce the height of the turbo end flange and slip it under the flange. It'll then sit in pretty much the right place and I've found the bolts usually just wind in by finger force, tighten, then fit the sump nuts which will pull it into place.

I know the 220 engine bay is cramped, so your mileage may vary :D

Hello there,

at a very slow pace, I´m doing a different conversion here, but I kinda need the same drain pipe. Just wondered how you put the flexi part together?.
The only thing I know of is steel corrugated pipe with stubby ends to weld. You seem to have used something more DIY´able. I´d be glad if yo could enlighten me

thanks
david.

The flexible section is nitrile rubber hose with stainless steel braiding - it is common for many motorsport uses. Just make sure it is resistant to hot engine oil!

I assume this is the part you meant?

theres a big chance ill want one of these also, as im pretty sure mines is leaking a touch (even if its not it still may be worth doing for piece of mind at that price!), but i shall let you know for definate soon.

and your right new ones are NLA apart from (as far as i know) moto-bodge selling them at near 90 quid a pop :thumbdown:


Stainless bits FTW i say :thumbup:

Thanks for the reply!

It is the connection between the steel pipe/flange and the SS braided nitril hose that triggered my attention. What type of clamps did you use? Never seen those. And did you use crimp sleeves?

thanks,

Ah, the clamps are "O-clips", you crimp them in place, they are quite good :) Not sure what you mean by crimp sleeves?

Sorry, I meant Heat shrink sleeves in stead of crimping.

so you pushed the hose over the steel pipe ends, including the heat shrink sleeves.
then shrink the sleeves, followed by crimping the O-clips.

Got mine today. Epic quality and workmanship.

Hefty flanges, sturdy pipework, I'm well impressed!

Glad you got it Andy, just the small matter of fitting it now ;)

Jupiler, you've got it :) Heatstrink and clips onto the hose, then end fittings, fit to engine to align everything, remove, shrink and crimp the clips.

Any chance you could tell me the outside diameter of the oil drain pipe as standard Punx ? needing to sleeve mine with silicone for a GT series turbo and need to see what size reducer i need.

Much appreciated

99% sure it's 18mm (18.05mm IIRC) but I'm away from home and don't have my notes. The ones above are 19mm, simply to suit commonly available hose sizes.

I have only just noticed that you maybe made those flanges ?

If so , whats the chances you could make me up one of those but with a 16mm pipe at 90 degrees. i.e the sump end ?

Lemme know , that way all i need to order is the Garret one with the 16mm take off and pipe them together.

P.S a ring of weld for a barb wont go a miss :lol:
