12 inches per foot,
2 pints per quart,
why don't we make it easy?
the english system of measurement MUST be laid to history,
we can use units of 10 and convert with ease,
just like all the other countries,
i am in command yes i am taking a stand,
from this disease we must be free! (Good God!)
You are drunk with your tradition that has no validity,
while i'm intoxicated with smarts and metrics,
come drink a dekaliter with me.
we want metrics, we want them now! we know we can win!
i weigh 170 lbs. that's 90 kilograms,
see metrics can even make me thin
(yardsticks are pathetic)
all cool things are in metrics,
for example here's just one,
i got my "nine" well that's nine millimeters,
sounds cooler then my .3 something inches gun!
the powerful, if non-existent "they" will call me communist,
they'll call me scum, but it's worth it,
canadians will think we're smart or at least not as dumb,
the revolution's here,
we must overcome at last,
as we symbolically stick their 12 inch foot up their antiquate ***... guitar!
Water lines which are 5/16, I need -6AN
Oil return which is 5/8, I need -10AN
This is the standard size most people use, yes.
Though when I was talking to a turbo rebuilder when I was working on a customers car, the builder suggested that for garrett turbos that the ID of the oil drain in the smallest part (usually the elbow) should be a minimum of 1/2" ID.
Most -10an fittings are less than 1/2" ID FWIW... he said go to -12an fitting and never every worry about the drain. Finding a -12an fitting can prove to be difficult though.
My water lines are sourced from the regular locations 1 on the mixing manifold 1 on the front water neck. Pretty sure they are both 5/16" OD fittings (so my ID on the hose needs to be somewhere around that size)
My oil return is 2 5/8" barbs (so my ID on the hose needs to be somewhere around that size).
I know it sounds wack, but I've even had luck with that universal braided hose kit for an s13/4. Kinugawa has a decent one. I've done that on a nx2000 I built with a t28 so figured I'd try it on the miata and a 2560. Figured since it was a Garrett it would work and it did. Came with all the paper/metal gaskets as well. I've always just rocked silicone for the oil drain, if I did rubber I just make sure to use a paper drain gasket and a longer metal tube from the turbo to dissipate some of the exhaust heat. AN drain is kinda baller though.
