If you drill a big enough hole for the tire valve to push all the way thru to the ridge, you won't need to use silicone since it will seal itself much like it would on a car rim. Another tip: PVC cement isn't needed to hold the cleanout adapter to the elbow... at 12psi, it wasn't anywhere near popping off and sealed well.

OP & Jorge: Thanks for the info, it was very helpful

Did you keep the oil cap on? how about the PCV valve? what year 2.0 WRX? I had my oil cap off, and I am thinking all the PSI I was trying to push through kept going out the oil cap...my gauge wouldn't hold a reading...
