Also did mine while engine was in car by simply following the directions as included by Josh. It's probably the only thing not leaking on this car.

Are you sure?
I measured three B230FT blocks and got closer to 25.1mm (1" is 25.4mm) which is a significant enough difference for a press fit to fail.

I guess I should of measured before posting. I was going off memory of the size of the hole. The hole is smaller than one inch on the block

I've drilled and tapped blocks in the car successfully, can't see how dropping in a slip fitting with some glue would be any kind of challenge.

Thank for the replies guys. At this point my question is a moot point as my turbo took a crap. I’ll be removing everything that was kind of in the way regardless.
