Does anyone know where I could get or have an oil feed line FITTING from the turbo to the line for a T3? To be more specific, its the MAX PSI SS Braided line. I did not want to have to buy a new line just for the fitting. I got the rebuilt turbo back from Charlie down there at EVERGREEN and it looks great! Just cant wait to get it on the WarBird!

Use of a new line is recommended. Many places won't guarentee a new turbo or a rebuild if a new line isn't used, BTDT, got the fried turbo

Have you tried like the plumbing dept at a major store - Lowes, for example. Or try Grainger or check with the turbo shops

the line that i have is new, I just seemed to have misplaced the fitting that connects the line to the turbo. Just needed to know what it was called and what size it was.

Scott at MaxPSI will send you a new one, I bet... probably for free. He's a cool dude.

The MaxPSI fittings are AN, not the stock inverted flare.

Yippee!! I found one at ACE Hardware! 1/8NPT x 1/4 flare! Now, all I gotta do is get that blasted factory oil line off! Whats the easiest way?

Use a line wrench. The only way to go to keep from rounding it off.

I got it off. I had to cut the line near the sending block, and then beat/bend the remaining line so that it cleared the first bolt of the intake. Just took the whole sending block off. Man o man.

Yeah, I had to hack my old one up as well. I used a Dremel tool and cut it in various places to facilitate moving things easier.

I kept mine intact. I don't know why really because I'll never go back to it. I just didn't want to cut things up I guess!
