With a lot of people starting to turbo their jeeps, anyone have any tips/insight to remove the oil pan from the engine while its still in the vehicle?

I will admit I haven't had a chance to take a peek yet but thought any help/tips would be great

If you know what you're doing you can tap the pan without removing it. We did mine that way. You just need to grease up the bit pretty heavily to catch all the shavings, then after you tap it, flush it seriously with brake cleaner, then dump 2 quarts of oil into it, then change the oil. It's worked so far for almost 18K on my Jeep. it's up to you though how you wanna do it. Just a suggestion.

Why are you removing the oil pan?
Turbo kit included a new oil pan with the 2 oil return fittings welded in already so I'm gonna drain/pull stock pan and replace with the new one with the fittings for the oil return fittings in it
