Default Turbo oil return bung in the oil pan

For those of you who have drilled your stock pan for the oil line return, what did you use for a bung? I"m thinking this, just not sure if the pan will be to thick for the lock nut to work.

I had a male jic fitting welded in, not sure the size. I used copper tubing and rubber hose. Super simple, your local Lowe's will have everything.

I'd bet the aluminum pan is to thick for that one, I'd weld one if you can, if not I bet the pan is thick enough to tap and just thread one in

Man I totally misread post, mine is welded in.

I didn't catch drill and tap, way to thin.

That bung is basically what I have but I didn't trust a nut being inside my oil pan

Thanks guys, I also agree on not trusting a nut inside the pan. I think I will have my buddy weld it in.

Just cheap insurance. I took my pan and bung to local welding shop and they cleaned and welded for 20$
