Four – 3/8″ barbs (3/8″ = 9.5mm)
For people not able to drill out their own channels, it may be hard to find 3/8″ barbs that do not require drilling holes out before tapping them. I had my local Nut & Bolt house order me some to my specification. (9/16″-18 NPT w’ 3/8″ barb)
*Note* If you’re not afraid of under sizing the , 5/16″ barbs are very common. The thread size is generally 9/16″-18 thread. The tap will fit straight into the oil channels without drilling.
This part is used only on the 3.0L Camry platform as far as I know. The reason for the part is because the y-pipe does not give clearance for the oil filter.
