Drill a small hole into the side of the sump, above the normal oil line, and weld a return pipe to the hole. Make sure you dump the oil & flush the sump out if your not removing it from the car to do this work, don't want metal shavings roaming around inside your engine.

I've modified the sump for my torana while the engine was out & upside down on the engine stand. Much easier than trying to do it in the car.

Cheers

Andrew, Check out www.boostedfalcon.net for better info on turbo'ing an E-Series. The best guys to speak to on there in QLD are Rollin (400+rwhp ED GLI Turbo) and BI6TIM (Snort Perfomance QLD Dealer)

Good question. Haven't seen a reply to this thread from him for a while, but look at the date of the first post, back in 2005 isn't it?

Cheers
