    I am getting ready to put the turbo in. for now i plan on just getting it in, and then i will run all the charge pipes later on.

    1) what typr, and size oil fittings do i need to buy, and how about how much am i looking to spend? Where can i get the stuff from?

    2) where can i buy tubing to make the manifold? How much would i bee looking to spend?

    3) is it ok to just get the turbo in, oil plumbed, down pipe attatched.. and run it like that without the charge pipes for a lil while? I think it would be ok, but its always good to double check

    4) and most important.. How the HELL can i cut this design out?!?

    burns stainless sells pipes, or you can go to a local muffler shop.

    as thick as that metal is i would guess a plasma torch or a milling machine.

    i think almost every automotive part is overpriced. like aebs selling hose clamps for like $50, when you can get some "generic" ones from hardware store for about $1 each.

    would it be ok to buy the generic parts? the only problem i forsee is the parts breaking.. but if i get Quality generic parts... shouldnt the withstand the heat and pressure?

    Yea...but some fittings you cant just buy at the hardware store...thats why i had to call them...but for lines and stuff..yea..you should be able too...my best advice...just dont start buying shit....get some prices and the make sure all of the sizes are the same before you start buying hoses..clamps..fittings...all that BS!
