Default Final Steps: Oil Drain and Coolant fittings/lines, little help?

Looks like my student loan stuff is going to pan out with the amount of money I need after all, so I'm going to try to finish this project already.


I have a GT2554R from a Mazdaspeed Protege. It is a normal gt2554r with a different compressor housing. I'm almost done with my build (I am lacking coolant lines, fittings and wastegate for my turbo, and IC piping)

I have a braided SS feed line and I have been reading FM's install manual...brains's FAQ etc. I've been looking through vbgarages too trying to figure how you guys run your coolant lines, and what out of? in FM it looks like its rubber/silicone hose to slip-on fittings?

I understand oil drain and the pan taping, kinda, seems easy enough anyway:
I just need a slip on style fitting for the turbo, and the stuff needed to tap the pan, and a 5/8 or so silicone hose which looks like it will work fine?


My turbo has no fittings so I'm going to be purchasing them also.
Here is my list of stuff needed, anybody want to show me some pictures or point me in a direction I need?:

Coolant?:

Not sure about inlet fittings. I've have to check my turbo and the line and fittings that I bought from NEO....

Where can I buy the fitting to tap the block with? m10x1.5 to -4an right?

You can get the M10x1.5 to -4AN from ATP also. I had to order one...
