options for Super Charger oil return

Hi guys,



Just wondering if anyone has done something different with their Super charger oil return instead of using a rubber hose and drain back plate. I think mine was leaking from the drain back hose and I think there could have been a better way to return the oil than using a rubber hose and hose clamp . Maybe a custom fitting and braided steel line? and tie back into the oil pan like the turbo guys do?

just a thought.. Im sure someone out there had to think of this.

This is a good idea and alternative to the hose clamp. AN fitting welded onto drain back plate. Trial and error at this point

I just click on the image icon thumbnail and it asks me to snap a picture or browse through my photo library. I just select what I want and boom!

Would've been nice to put a -10AN fitting on it instead of a regular barb so that you can get rid of that oddball hose. What you added should do the job though.

That’s acutally ViperVadim who had that fitting welded on there. Haven’t tested it out but if it’s easier to get the hose on and off, to replace the belt on the SCger then it’s a good improvement.

is that your business? Retro fit r us?

Did you do your tail LEDs?

I don't think it's going to be any easier than the standard drain back plates.. Looks like he added that to a stock plate..

That is my business and I do tail lights.
