Default How to Remove Turbo Oil Drain Tube on Head?

Hello,
I need to remove the engine side of the turbo oil drain so that I can modify it. This is the part I am talking about:



I have removed the bolt holding the bracket in place and applied as much force as I am comfortable applying w/o damaging anything. It will not budge in any direction. I would think that it should be light press fit with an o-ring in there someplace for sealing but I can not find any information about it in the factory manual. Has anybody here personally removed this? Is there some trick to this?

If you are interested in why I have to modify the oil returnůsee here:

PorSTi Conversion

I am transplanting an '05 Sti engine into a '73 Porsche 914.
Regards
Scott

That is awesome...any build photo's of it?

Nobody has any ideas on the oil return fitting??? This is the last thing that I need to do to button up the turbo.

Well I finally got it out and it required a bit more than a little force. It is press fit in with no o-ring.



With a ring of glue for good measure.



So now we know and will not have to speculate next time....
