It will be fine. I used aluminum fitting for oil feed and return on my oil cooled turbo w/o any problems. The center section doesn't get that hot.

That's all I've ever used. In fact, most bolt on return flanges are aluminum.

Good deal. I'm replacing a couple of old rusted fittings and wanted to use aluminum.
