"1/8 NPT Adaptor - male fitting goes with the block."
Fail.

"All of turbo parts do need to modification in order to fits perfectly."
Yes, but do fitting not hit block?

Is it really that much of a task to save another 10 or 20 bucks?

Well I'm doing this on the cheap, so if I have to fork out for the BEGI or FM lines, I will, but how hard can it be to screw up lines?

Anodization does not catch on fire, its actually a hardened surface using oxidation and acids, It shouldnt flake unless its not anodized. Aluminum melts at 11XX degrees Fahrenheit. Last time i checked oil temps were around 200*F

You get what you pay for. I bought a drain fitting off ebay and it didn't fit worth ****. I had to modify the hell out of that thing to get it to work. Never again ebay!

This person is asking a honest question. Dont feed him false information. Im simply stating the physical properties of said oil line kit. If you were new to the forum and asked an honest question, (after reading the FAQ of course) you would expect an honest answer; would you not?

In all honesty those ebay AN fittings dont look bad at all but if you order all summit brand parts from summit racing you'll spend half of what you would on ebay and get KNOWN quality pieces.

There is an eBay company out there that makes a Volvo header (IIRC, might be for another make) with the head flange welded in upside down, so the exhaust faces up and forward. You decide whether they are capable of screwing up a braided stainless steel line with crimp fittings.

That may be true....but I'm pretty sure EGTs can reach in excess of 1600 degrees. If you've got a line feeding a turbo, it's not too far from basically a HUGE heat source. I don't know how much heat dissipates within a few inches of radiation...but I would imagine that it's possible to see really high temps in the center of the turbo. Is it possible that it could lead to eventually fatigue/part failure? Just curious.
