your way is safer to drill the hole maybe....but your turbo wont like itSUPRAMKIV510 said:i understand, the upper oil pan needs to be drilled, but removing the lower oil pan would be safer , correct? is it difficult?
The "coin" won't land inside the oil pan if the pilot drill bit extends past the teeth of the hole saw. Instead, it will stay on the drill bit and embed itself in the hole saw.eblick99 said:im drilling mine right now but i see no reason to use a hole saw. i dont want to make a "coin" that could fall into the pan like with dejacky's car.
You can spend $30 on an exotic bit, but I just used a hole saw from Home Depot or Loews.

No i dont have pictures since the pans/motor are/is already on the car. but if you look on the turbo side of the pan, you will see provisions already made into the oil pan. Just find it, you cant miss it, and drill away.Thank you. Do you have pictures of the location, for the tap?
