It's the best routing IMO for oil flow, and there's no cutting on the pan. I did have difficulty sealing up the threads, Hondabond has worked best. If i ever get in there again, I'll have a aluminum bung welded on for a permanent solution. Pic is best I have of it, i'll see if I can take a better one. Can't get car in the air right now unfortunately.
I'm also not sure where the extra work comes. If it's taking the pan off, that's just to get the chips out, and clean so Honda bond sticks. You may be thinking of cutting the webbing...I did the "possible alternate location" the spoke of in the Full race install instructions, there's no cutting on the pan, just drill and tap. If you want a permanent solution welding is the best option.
My current problem is my garage door crapped out on me, so can't get car in the garage. I tried getting it in a low spot so I could snap a quick pic, but didn't work out.
I'll try to get a picture again of it. I can't think of a reason you couldn't weld a bung on there, I was planning on it when I need to get into the bottom end of the engine.
IIRC, you could push the bung in until it's at the bottom of the curve, and it wouldn't interfere with anything on the internals. There'd be little or no gap for a welder to worry about.
I found some more pictures too! Looks like there's good clearance on the inside of the pan, just make sure you have it as far towards the trans end as you can, you can see where my tap grazed the inside wall.
Only letting me load one pic at a time. You'll have to look at the bolt hole in that area, I think there's room to shift the hole over farther so the bolts not blocked by the bung. This could require a bit of ingenuity to get around.
I put the fitting in the pan, after mounting pan to the block, so the bolt was already in. The picture with it in, with the pan off, was just checking the threads.
There's room to shift it over and clear I believe, or throw a set screw in the block, and use a nut in that location. It kinda depends on what the O.D. of the bung your using on how it goes in to clear everything. It may be easier for you to cut the webbing on the pan, and put it on the side like Full-Race instructions said.
I have a 2010 Accord LX Sedan (5AT) that I've just finished a turbo build on, and I have a vague idea of what to do next, but I want to see what the more experienced people's opinions are on it.
