    i have a garrett t3 waiting to be installed, but i need to find out if it needs water and oil lines? it has 2 sets of lines in between the intake and exhaust housing and i'm not sure if i need to use all four lines. any help would be appreciated.

    I would be willing to bet its water cooled. Cant tell for sure w/out the specifics of the turbo u have.

    To know for sure, you would need to know the exact part number of your turbo so you can check to see how that part is cooled.

    do i go to the garrett site to check that info? i can run home on my lunchbreak and get the number. is there an advantage/disadvantage of having water cooled over oil?

    oil is not a cooler.... its a luber.

    oil is a must, water is optional

    if its setup to be watercooled, you should run it. all you really need is to tap into your water system off the throttle body coolant line

    absolutely. If you run a water line to an oil line, you won't have a turbo very long... it'll fry.

    Post a pic of your turbo, somebody on the board should be able to show you which is which.

    that is the best i can do for now. the oval-shaped one has a line on the opposite side of the one in the picture, and the pic is a bolt going through the line. hope this helps, i would really like to get this turbo in. thanks again.

    there are 4 holes total. two of each that are pictured. the hole in the first picture has one like it on the opposite side, and same with the hole in pic 2. the other 2 pics were even less clear as those two pics i posted.
