The turbo side of the Begi oil feed line is too large for the fitting currently on the turbo

Oh i get it. The banjo goes directly on turbo and is a -3AN, your Begi line is a -4AN.

Yeah, you can get an adapter. (And add yet another failure point to the obnoxious amount of fittings and joints in the Begi stuff)

Did you get all of this from Begi?

Yep ordered right from begi... Guess I should have ordered the correct fitting for the turbo... Probably my bad there. I didn't realize there was a drop down to select the fitting. I figured there was some magic wizardry that would select the appropriate fitting for me

I still need a 90deg fitting though since the grimmspeed wastegate holder thing is in the way... the line cant go straight in, the way it currently sits. I suppose I could clock the turbo a little but I dont know if I want to change where the intercooler hose will go

Gotcha.

The whole thing looks convoluted as hell to me. (And on our own car as well.) Makes me twitch just looking at it. One day i'll get a hair up my *** and replace it all with lines that make sense and don't have double the failure points for double the fun.

Sorry for delay, I'll send out fm tools and the adapter today. I've been hunting for ac parts and figuring out where I can do a head gasket job

Is there any problem with drilling and tapping my front coolant block off plate to pull coolant for the turbo? I have an Artech water lines that mount towards the front and I don't want to pull coolant from all the way at the back of the motor. Will pulling coolant from the front negatively affect the coolant flow since I have a coolant reroute?

To the smaller coolant port on the back of the engine.

I think it is ugly personally, but I haven't had any issues with it.

Awesome thanks again! Is the line to the back really needed or will it draw eenough from the front alone?

Well you want to loop the coolant return from the turbo into the back otherwise you wouldn't get fresh coolant to the turbo. I think at least, makes sense in my head. I honestly didn't do the coolant reroute on my car, so I'm not a reliable go to source on how correct it is or not.

All I know is my turbo hasn't coked up or overheated so it is working as intended. Hope that helps.

That definitely makes sense... The other line from the Artech bracket goes down to the mixing manifold correct? So that would be the return unless I'm mistaken... The only reason to pull a line from the back of the motor would be to provide more coolant for the supply and like you said to bring fresh coolant into the turbo...

I'm just going to copy yours either was since I know it will work Hahaha

No you are right. It goes to the mixing manifold. Don't know why I said back of the motor. That would be dumb. I just had to look through some photos of my engine out of the car and it is indeed the mixing manifold.

Oh wait! I bet the line to the left goes to the oil filter heat transfer thing...

(aka this thing, that happens to have a bent fitting on my motor)
