Default Can't find a M16x1.5 turbo coolant fitting.

I'm trying to find two M16x1.5 water coolant fittings for my T3 turbo. I don't care if they're a banjo bolt assembly or just fittings. The only type I've found have an AN fitting on the other end and I just want to be able to slip the hose on, not create a whole AN hose assembly.

I never thought it would be so difficult finding these fittings. Any suggestions?

You may have to use a fitting that is 16X1.5 to -6 male. You can add a pair of -6 90's and then just slip your hoses on the end without using the compression collar. Just use a hose clamp. No braided hose needed.

Why not just use An fittings on the turbo side of the coolant lines and just hose clamp the braided line on the block side?

Check out my post in here for another water line option. This is my favorite way to go.
