Default Confused on oil lines.

I'm purchasing the last part of the turbo build and will be boosting by next week. I'm not sure what lines would work for a t3 td04hl-15g MHI turbo off a Volvo. Could someone help me out with a place where I can quick shipping? I'm dropping the car off on Thursday.

I'm not installing the turbo because I clearly don't know enough to put it together correctly. So that's my excuse for this noobish question.

I have a 13g. I used a M12x1,5 to JIC heavy duty hydrolic hose, equivalent to 4AN but proper metal not crappy aluminum fitings. No restrictor. For drain, the Volvo flange and hardline with a piece of hose fasten with clamps.

If you search "TD04 oil drain" in eBay, you'll find plenty of examples of different lengths. I used a 20" on my log manifold. I pieced together fittings and AN hose for my feed. I could just sell you all my oil lines... as long as a TD04-20t uses the same ports as yours. My turbo stuff is just sitting in a corner waiting for me to not be lazy and try to sell it.
