So picked up the turbo kit.

Just need help identifying what parts are here/ missing.

Never had a turbo so big, so when fitting I know what parts match up.

So I have a rough idea, but just want to run it by you guys/ girls.





Thanks in advance.

4 - Oil Return line/port (to oil pan)

2 is oil (straight across from oil drain) banjo bolt to block.

3-4 are coolant. One with rubber goes to stock coolant port behind tb and the other goes to coolant port on the block with a banjo bolt.

Since this is going on a VE, you just need to ditch those hardlines period and run all new fittings and lines.

4 is your oil drain, opposite end of that is your oil feed

the other two are coolant. Doesnt matter which one is in/out. Ditch those lines and get yourself some straight fittings or fittings of your chose to run new hose. Youll need a new fitting for your feed line as its going to come from a line from the back of the block from the oil filter housing. Coolant you would just tap in line from your throttle body. Thats the easiest way to do things.

I agree, since it is a VE, tap the coolant lines off the back of the TB like Ashton said. I have done it that way on all my DE setups and it works great. Very clean and easy to do.

Cheers, where is a good place to buy these new turbo fittings/lines?

Also in the Uk I could ot find a shop that sells the drill bit/ tap/ and barb for the block part.
Any alternative? Or do I need to use these exact parts to tap the block?

1. Tap 1/2" x 14 NPT
2. Drill bit 45/64"
3. Barb/ bung 1/2" npt to 5/8" barbed fitting
