Gonna get a matco one soon. The better ones have a forged tip, the cheaper ones (like that one) have a cast Cr-V tip which isn't nearly as strong.
Before I left work today I zipped them off with the impact gun and then snugged them with another breaker bar. Finished my hub swap tonight. No more roaring wheel bearing and the brakes feel much better.

Here's basically what I use... I've since shortened it by just a touch and run a 45 fitting on the pan




A -10/-12an setup should do you (5/8" - 3/4")... What size do you run now?

Well the oil pan and turbo both have 1/2" hose barbs on them so I don't really want to switch to an fittings. I just need a hose that will hold up.

Well then just grab some steel braided line that's oil resistant and you're done...

got some oil resistant hose from a local vendor, we'll see how this holds up. Also changed to oil to Rotella T6 5w-40. My engine didn't like Mobil 1 at all. would get HLA chatter after only 2k miles.

And best of all, ordered some Hankook Ventus V12's! I can't wait to get those mounted! but then it will be no more burnouts. lol

I have V-12's on my daily driver stock wheels, great tire. Best thing about this tire is that it's very quiet.
