If you have porosity in your weld, you won't be TIG welding it up... The oil will contaminate your welds. MIG will have similar challenges. I had a similar problem with porosity in the weld on an engine mounter oil cooler on my first 911.

It's too bad that they made this the way they did. They should have drilled a hole through the plate, put the fitting through the hole and TIG or MIG welded up the inside of the plate. This would have done a much nicer job and would have been far less prone to weld contamination.
