I've seen folks use the Stinger pre-fabricated oil drain line on stock manifolds. I've seen folks upgrade to a Gnari. I've seen folks upgrade to a T3/T4. But does the Stinger oil drain line fit a T3/T4 with a Gnari manifold? Thanks in advance.

So, quick response as I have done the T3/T4 swap and used the Stinger drain line on it. The drain line is a tight fit with a stock manifold and there is specific instructions as to the install to get it on there correctly without kinking or binding. I would think with the extra 1/2" of mounting space on the Gnari, it would actually make it easier to install and fit better, BUT, I have not installed my Gnari yet to verify this.

Thanks. It sounds like the Stinger is a bit long then(?) making the extra 1/2 inch of the Gnari better? Has anyone figured out how to mate the stock IHI oil drain tube/flange to a T3 (2" flange)?

It is a scoche long, but this is due to the fact that the ends being crimped on and the types of fittings only allow for so short of a flex line to be used. It works well.
