Help!: Dipstick location

Hey guys, about to get done with my Longtube install but I forgot where the dipstick goes! Me and my buddy are here, so one person can go under the car while another is up top, I just kinda need a general location. Anyone have a pic or something?

Any help is appreciated

If I remember correctly it is just behind the oil fill location.

it's on the passenger's side next to the valve cover near your oil fill, big and red, can't miss it.

Are you guys talking about the hole location? Because that's what I need.

Thanks

Just went to look. The best I can tell....pasenger side, when you're facing the engine compartment it will be right in front of the 3rd tube. Just before the 3rd tube.

Ok!! its a pain in the sack! it is on the passanger side, it enters just behind the second sparkplug, the hole is on the ledge of the block just above the pan, you enter just in front of the starter, behind a group of wires in plastic loom that goes to the starter. you might have to forcefully push the wires out away from the block.


Good luck.

Just to clarify, as some of the responses are WWAAYYY off (like all of them except for one or two). The OP is referring to the DIPSTICK TUBE. Not the actual dipstick. He wants to know where the tube enters the oil pan. I would take a picture but I am now where near my car atm.

The hole is just in front of the starter. Tricky to see, trickier to hit from above.

Check out the DIY thread. Doing mine next weekend or so too, but haven't read it yet. I hear it's decent.
