Members have repeatedly remarked/shown videos and pictures about their own problems. Drilling the hole among other obvious things sure will help the odds of a lifetime lasting motor. A tiny screw for a child's toy battery cover will solve any negative feelings about the hole.

F150 ecoboost 1/16" hole drilled - YouTube
Jesus, looked like a giser... appeared to be a 7/32 or 1/4" hole!

Is this the Same Spot all of you guys are drilling your 1/16 hole in the CAC?

More than 4 - 5 ounces.
Shenanigans!
2-3 melted ice cube would make a puddle that size! Im Guessing it was closer to 2oz, maybe 3 max came out!

I am the owner of the video and truck. I assure you it is 1/16". This is the lowest spot to drill the hole.

I didn't measure it but I guess it was 3-4 ounces. It gravity drained a couple minutes before I started it.

Why not? It is reversible. If I choose, I could plug it with a very small screw.
