oil and water lines came in today, Hooray!

kinda wish i got a longer oil line.. vadim wasn't sure on the length so i got 50".. i may have to run it under the engine so it reaches but we'll see.

as for the water lines i was thinking i might need to get a 3/8 to 1/2 barb adapter, but i think i might be able to get 3/8 lines on the water jackets where the tb water lines use to go

So those oil and water lines, not plug n play need adapters?

they should fit right into the turbo.

the water lines have a barbed fitting on the end to use regular rubber hose.. i opted for the stainless steel part to connect to the turbo because of the heat, i wouldn't want to melt a hose.. and they look neat they are only 10" long but that should be pleanty long enough to keep the rubber lines away from the heat

the oil line will hopefully reach around the block but i might have to route it under the engine if its not long enough till i can get a longer one.. i also may need another adapter to go from the T to where the stock oil sensor goes but im not sure yet but i will more then likely get one just incase cause im pretty sure i'll need one.

running your oil line under the motor might not be the best idea... I know i dont want something breaking that oil line from the road and ruining my turbo and motor

i'm pretty sure that line is suppost to go over the engine.....usually see them run between the intake runneres and over the valve cover.....not sure how long you'rs is tho josh....the one from mazworks is designed to go over anyway.....is you'rs from them?

I always run my oil feed around the block and under the thermostat housing. i use rubber hose to protect the ss line from rubbing and possibly forming a hole.
