If you want a cleaner and much better oil system for the FI setup (turbo and sc alike) you def want this. I wish RIPP would incorporate this as a standard to the brass T alternative!



http://www.greddy.com/prod_oil_block_adapter.htm

Now for the details. This thing basically sandwiches between the block and oil filter. It provides 3 different tap offs for oil. PERFECT if you want to run a oil pressure and temp guage along with a FEED line to a blower or turbo. You can leave the stock oil pressure sender alone and forget about brass Ts

The fittings are a lil bitch though. I had to buy 2 adapters cause i am a wuss and cant tap out aluminum without stripping it. The GReddy filter block has (2) 1/8" BSPT and (1) M12 hole. I have an autometer oil pressure guage and the sender is 1/8" NPT. therefore i found a site that sells stainless 1/8 BSPT male to 1/8 NPT female adapters. http://www.mcmaster.com/

All in all its a very clean and hassle free oil assembly now. Strongly recommended


You can get this for $55 from OptAuto

So let me get this straight - you can use this instead of tapping into the oil pan?
No. This is were the turbo gets its oil from. You will still have to tap the oil pan for the oil return line.

i dont think you would want turbo-heated oil to be injected straight into your filter.

That is what I used for my oil tap. The only problem is that the thread sizes are not your standard A/N or simmilar. It took me a while to find some fittings to work.

Do you know the part number for the adapter from McMaster?

golden eagle makes one to that will fit our cars...

its supposed to be better than the greaddy because i guess the oil runs through the filter b4 it goes out the adapter so you get filtered oil instead of unfiltered...

Can anyone tell me which of the 3 ports you used for the oil line to your SDS or turbo? I am using one of the 1/8" holes for my oil psi gauge and was planning to use the M12 hole for the oil feed hose barb adapter. Not sure if the M12 or the 2nd 1/8" hole would be better suited for feeding my SDS oil. I seem to be having trouble finding a good M12 hose barb adapter to use so maybe I should go use the other 1/8" hole for the oil feed?? Also, any idea what the thread pitch is for the M12 hole???

I ordered the same adapters from McMasters that Franchise did for the 1/8" holes. The adapters don't screw in ALL the way (they don't sit flush against the oil adapter block) but I am guessing they are in good enough (tight and sealed with high temp silicone thread sealant stuff).

Not sure if it matters but my Greddy adapter came from Hong Kong or Taiwain (all the instruction are in non-English) and I'm not seeing any usefull info on the Greddy site either.

All tips/suggestions/explainations are welcome....

1/8" NPT threads are tappered, so they will not sit flush. The more you screw the fitting in, the tighter it will get because of the taper.

:doh: Thanks! Now I see why I shouldn't do my own home plumbing :p

Anyone have thoughts on the M12 thread pitch or do all metric holes have a standard pitch? I thought I saw a M12 x 1 and an M12 x 1.5 adapter somewhere... And should I (did you) run your oil feed through the 1/8" hole or the M12 hole?

It may not matter but I used the 1/8th hole for mine.
:yesway: Good enough for me! Already have the adapter/hose barb for that one so if it works for you then thats what I'll use too. Thanx!
