    Well I didnt have shit to do and gave up playing with the trans. So I decided I better get have of my turbo oil lines ready.

    I went to home depot and got a few things. Total Cost there was $9.02.

    3/8" Male Square top Cap
    3/8" to 3/8" NPT to male nipple (I don't know these technical names, but you'll get the idea)
    (2) Hose clamps, because I have no clue where mine are
    10' of some clear 3/8" high temp vinyl hose.

    Went home and assembled the bitch. I had the other parts needed which are the INLET Flange and Oil Plate Adapter.
    I paid 25.89 for the adapter and the flange came with the turbo, but figure 10 bucks or less on ebay, plus the fittings because you'll need some extra ones with the ebay fittings.


    And here's my final product. I don't care, for >$10 bucks this shit is beautiful.

    Oh, and I chose the clear on purpose, I want to see the oil going through to make sure it is properly flowing. I know I could have just put a peice of the clear in but fuck it, the shit was cheap and it's the way I want.

    SS is in the near future for sure. Home Depot is a budget turbo modifier's favorite store.

    They sell some nice cheap plumbing equiptment. Probably around $2.50 or less a foot for some good quality SS line, but the longest they have I think it 3 foot and I'm not paying $70+ for a kit and didn't want to have to use connectors every 3 feet.

    I guess it isn't too bad, but for now this will work. And it's not like I just spent massive amounts of money on it.

    Ya that will last all of about 8 minutes. Oil temp is about 230*+ and at 50-75 PSI. That hose is for hot water in a house, like for the little extra sprayer on the edge of the sink for getting really cruddy dishes clean. Don't use it, for your turbos sake.

    yea that drink is the shit.

    I dunno, we'll see how well this works. I may go there tomorrow to read the specs for the pressure ratings. I didn't even think about that.

    But it can handle the temperature, I'm sure of that.

    Found the tag.

    Braided Tubing
    10 feet
    5/8" outside diameter, 3/*" Inside Diameter
    High Pressure
    Chemical/Oil/Water Uses
    Pnuematic/Vaccum Uses

    I dunno, maybe it will work, I'm not going to just put it on and drive off. I'm going to test it to make sure it works. If it blows, oh well shut the car off and I lost $4 and going spend $25-30 on some SS lines.

    i'd bet the clamps give out from the pressure before the actual hose does...


    i've seen people running three clamps instead of 1...
    lol

    well, I ditched the clear hose shit. I just didn't trust it anymore. Went to strauss and found some PS/AT trans hose and bought a few feet of that ($20) and then homedepot and like $5 in fittings.

    Looks better with black hose anyway. So my $10 went to like $35-40 but I'm positive it will work this way and won't have to worry about bursting or anything like that.

    I may just uses SS for the drain, cause its only like $3 for a 10" SS line and $2 for each fitting.

    Think I should use the clear shit for the coolant lines? I forgot about them and now I don't know if I want to do them.
