+1 on the ***
why not use copper tubing from lowes for the drain something like 3/4 inch with some 45 or90 degree bends and little rubber hose on the connection of the turbo and oil pan did my this way and dont have to worry about heat soldered the 45 and 90 degree to the long piece and that is it will try to post pic tomorrow

anplumbing.com has just about every fitting/hose you could find, excellent prices, and has a good reputation from fellow miata turbo'ers. When I bought my used turbo kit I picked up all the bits from this site to change to AN fittings and SS line for the drain. Do it once do it right, you don't want to end up with an oil problem for the turbo.... ever.

dude, dont worry about doing all that. If you want it right away, just go to your local autopart store and get a hose that fits over your fittings. get some small tbolt type clamps too and clamp it tight as hell. It wont melt, dont worry.

my melted so i had to redo it bit better. it all depends on the setup though.. i don't doubt the rubber hose if you don't have a external wastegate pipe close by.

So what about the stealthmode kit from TT?

Its got everything it looks like except the block fitting which thesnowboarder is going to hook me up with. Is that kit a good deal and would I need anything else? Could I go considerably cheaper by getting the parts individually?

Stealthmode Oil Line kit for Turbos with 44mm drain flange bolt spacing

Edit: BTW, its a new day, here is a new ***. Keep fappin, boys.

I paid 100 for all my oil drain and feed shipped. I couldn't spend 85+ shipping on that.

normal rubber drain should be fine since his wastegate is internal

Back from the dead with a couple more questions...

For my Sr20 T25, do I need to use a restrictor? I've searched and read quite a bit of info, no one seems to agree on whether or not it is necessary. I have the Tunertoys oil line kit, is this oil line small enough to not need a restrictor?

Also, where should I route the vac line for the WGA? Do I need to drill/tap the compressor housing for that or is it possible to pull it from somewhere else?

since you are being a dick about it...

WGA just needs its own source for vac, don't share it it doesn't do that well

I believe your sr20 T25 is BB isn't it? If so then yes you do need a restrictor.

Are you sure you know how to search?

Internal Wastegates are built into the turbine housing and consist of a “flapper” valve, crank arm, rod end, and pneumatic actuator. It is important to connect this actuator only to boost pressure.

Incorrect. All nissan sr20det t25's are journal bearing. Some t28's are ball bearing, the later ones are dual ball bearing.

yeah I don't know about the SR turbos, if it is journal though then no need for a restrictor. (shouldn't need a restrictor, but you will find out soon enough...)

Ya thanks mazda/nissan for showing me that dr turbo thread. I didn't look at it since it was in the meet/greet section, didn't suspect any thread there would have useful info.

I initially assumed that a restrictor was not needed since the journal bearing itself is pretty much a restriction and might as well get all the oil it can.

As for the WGA, i'm just going to drill a spot in my compressor housing or outlet adapter and jb weld a fitting on or something. Seems like the easiest solution.

lmao I wouldn't be much an arch rival, i'm not a very competitive person by nature. However, i wanna head out to bremerton asap to autox. SIR is going to be too expensive for me at the moment, i'm a school boy now.
