Im stuck. I have a friend who put a T04B on his car and had a shop do it. I went to them and told them I was doing the same thing and wanted to know if I could get the same oil feed/return lines that he has.



Well, I got a feed line, but I dont know how to get it into my block! Do I need an adaptor or something? I saw this http://www.atpturbo.com/Merchant2/merchant...tegory_Code=FTG and thought about using it in conjunction with the stock banjo bolt that is there, but I dont know if its 14mm OR if my fitting is 1/4" NPT...



How did you all hook up your oil feed?

Either plumb it into the stock hard line, or you need an adaptor to bolt it to the iron housing. I think I have one at the shop I can take a pic of.

don't some people tap the port on the turbo NPT and just thread in a NPT to AN adapter? I coulda sworn I've seen pictures of that a number of times.

Hes talking about the feed "port" coming form the front iron. Easiest way is to plumb into the stock line as SN3 mentioned.
