Default -6AN Turbo Supply Mod

Since I'm on a AN kick this week, decided to post this on up for review. Needed 2 turbo supply lines off block. Rather than pull off the oiling main ports with 4AN lines, I just modified the PPE remote filter adapters. Welded a -6AN bung to it, now not robbing a main bearing supply.

Wasn't using that port for temp sensor anyways. It did require drilling the adapter block out to same size as the AN hole before we welded the bung on.

Once welded up, cleaned up the inside with dremil and blew it out with some carb cleaner. Finished off with a special home anodizing kit...

Paint dried.

A 45deg hose fitting should point it in the right direction.

Thanks Bac. They say necessity is the mother of invention. And this build has definitely been a motha...

After a bunch of reading, I found no real consensus on which port or ports in the block are best. One thing is certain, I wasn't using the factory LML port...

We had to build a special plug to block off the valley port. It's just below the bolt pictured. After doing a little measuring on main oil supply passages, I think this new location should have least impact on crank bearings.

If anything, you are pulling pressure from all the mains equally since it will hit the adapter first before going to the mains

45deg hose end fits my setup perfectly. But will probably not play well with the stock L adapter used on PPE oil cooler bypass hose. For that setup it will likely require a 90 on thw 6AN.
