I mentioned this in another thread, but it was kinda off topic, so here's a dedicated thread.

I read in Sport Compact Car this month that to install the Vortech SC you have to drill a hole in the block. Obiously this is not reversable, but is it pluggable if you wanted to go back to stock?

Do all the SC kits require this?

Do any/all of the TT kits require this?

NO! NO! It's the oil pan that receives the hole. The Vortech is lubricated from the engine block oil. And yes, .... you can plug the hole if your return to stock.

On page 141 of the November issue says step two is "drilling a hole in the lower portion of the Z's split crankcase." Now maybe you can go into the oil pan as an alternative. I don't know. I haven't installed one.

The "lower portion of the Z's split crankcase" is the oil pan. I installed my own Vortech and I have NO concerns about this.

LOL...I was just thinking that as I read this thread^^^^ :)

You definately drill it into the upper oil pan, which, to the average person, will look like you are drilling into the block..but you are not.

All the other TT kits have taps or fitings that thread directly into the lower part of the oil pan. And of course, the ATI is self-lubricating, and doesnt need an engine oil source.
