I know this is short notice, but tomorrow is when I get the hardest part out of the way... the return line setup. I have all my lines/fittings (thanks Dave :bigthumb: ).. now what I need to know is this:

1. What kind of drill bit did you use and what size
2. What size tap did you use for the bolt holes

Thats probably it.. I did alot of research on the forums but for my own peace of mind I want to be sure 100%. Also any pointers will be greatly appreciated. I already plan on using lots and lots and lots of grease :)

Kirk,

Did you pick up a Lexus IS300 union bolt? Tt will help quite a bit without drilling the factory bolt.

You are going to have so much fun once the conversion is complete.

For future reference.. incase anyone comes across this thread with a search... I ended up getting:

Right Angle adapter for the drill $12 @ Harbor Freight
Hole Saw 7/8" = $6 @ Home Depot
6mm/1.00 Tap $4 @ Napa

7/8 is the perfect size for the hole saw.. I read 1/2 and 5/8 on the other thread and those were way too small
