Alright I just installed my 16G a few months ago and havent really driven the car all that much but I'm having a leaking oil problem from the 90 degree fitting off the oil filter housing. Where the 90 fitting hooks into the housing it drips pretty good and I've tried thread tape and that failed within a few days and I also picked up Permatex Thread Sealer (The runny brown goo) and it is still leaking. Anyone have any suggestions on products or methods. It is getting real irritating at this point.

Loctite. Did you use a fitting with the right threads?

High temp, oil resistant ultra black. Teflon the threads and ultra black about half way up the threads to the head of the bolt. Make sure is splooges out the top a little.

I got the fitting from JNZ Tuning so I'm assuming it is the right thread. I'll pick up the high temp black and give it a shot. Thanks guys!
