Let me see if I can get a parts list together for you. In the mean time, check out this post of my build thread: http://www.sr20-forum.com/members-rides/554-benfenner-s-1994-black-se-r-4.html#post208305


So you need to decide if you want to keep your oil pressure light operational. If you do, then you will want to "T" it into the line somewhere. If you don't want to keep it, then all you need is 3.5 feet of -3AN braided hose (usually you'll buy 4 feet) and the correct adapter(s) for each end. Autometer sells the block adapter which is 1/8" BPT(BSP) male to 1/8" NPT female. You'll need a 1/8" NPT male to -3AN male adapter. Then you need the turbo-side adapter which depends on your turbo. It will be -3AN male on one end and likely Garrett spec on the other end. You'll have to look that part up.

If you want to "T" in the oil pressure sensor then you'll need to get a few more things. Here's what you'll end up with for the most part if you go that route:

https://sphotos-a.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ash4/2612_72386260099_5794614_n.jpg (laid out in order of installation)
https://sphotos-a.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ash4/2612_72386270099_4978094_n.jpg (look closely, and you'll see everything you need)

That is a 3-foot section and 1-foot section of -3AN braided hose. There are two -3AN male to 1/8" NPT male adapters and a 1/8" NPT female "T" fitting. If you want to do it right, then you'll also need a 1/8" NPT male to 1/8" BPT(BSP) female adapter for the oil pressure sensor (this one can be expensive and hard to come by).

If you don't care about jamming 1/8" NPT threads into 1/8" BPT(BSP) threads, you can do without the two odd-ball adapters.

Or if you use an aftermarket oil pressure sensor (and by-pass the dash light) then you can go without the one hard-to-find adapter.

Actually the reason i have been researching for almost a year the whole kit is cause i want to do it good .. so i will look for all this stuff man .. thnkz .. i will most likely spend my whole evening looking for all my lines for sure .. soo what about restrictor man u think i will need one or not due to the -1 NPT ?

Short answer: you won't need a restrictor with -3AN line and a good drain. Just like @SE-Rawkus already said.

can def find a cheaper braided line than that and 48" might be too long

I'll look over your list later when I get back from movie night.
