Here's my solution.

- Use this from ATP: 14x1.5mm banjo to 1/4 NPT ~$18

- and a plumbing supply adapter: 1/4 MPT x 3/8 compression ~$3

- and 3/8" copper piping, bend to your desired shape, away from the hot manifold and turbo, towards p/s pump. Then push your coolant hose onto the other end of the copper piping

Curious how these refrigerator copper lines will hold up.

I've used it to fab my own p/s cooling lines and it held up 8 years no problem.

just to cater to the original thread title, you can get aluminum tubing just like your copper tubing. for whatever that is worth weight and corrosion wise.
