    What are people doing for the oil return grommet for the turbo on the Jetfire? Is there a good replacement that anyone has found that works? I thought about getting an estimate to have these reproduced but not sure there is enough demand for it or if there is a “good enough” replacement that people are using. The price would depend on how much the mold would cost. I would think the mold would be considerably less than the foot flange gasket’s mold was.

    I see yours is kind of green. Mine is beige/grey.
    I would think that you should be able to get a rubber grommet to do the job: even if you had to do some altering. There are also those grommet plugs that have a solid top for ‘plugging a hole’ that you could cut to suit the pipe. Obviously due to the angle of the pipe entering this factory design is best.

    That is what I felt but I have heard of several people needing these in the past. I never needed one so was not sure if there was something people have found that work or not. Felix just posted on Facebook that a TH400 transmission dipstick grommet works good. I will skip this project since there is an alternative

    I Think the color is likely the same. This picture is not very good for mine. I found a nearly mint used one for my car a few years ago. I have another one that is nearly as good that may find its way to Melissa’s car.
