Turbo oil supply line pressure

Did some searching but I think this is kind of a new idea from yours truly [Image: biggrin.gif]

I was wondering if a barbed fitting setup and regular oil line hose clamped to the barbs would work for the turbo's oil supply line? I can get high temp teflon line but not steel braided line that can be attached to a hose barb which is why I ask.

Can regular teflon line hold the heat and pressure of the supply line? Has anyone done this before?

dude are you nuts? i wouldnt even attempt. blow the oil supply line for the turbo when beating the balls off of it and it is toast. go to your local auto parts store and by a 2 ft brake line 1/4 inch in diameter and bend it on a glass bottle. the brake line is like 4 bucks. comes with both ends on it. so you just have to screw it in with some thread tape and be done with it.
