Default Hold my hand, and show me how to feed my turbo

I've been looking for the last few hours for an oil feed line for my greddy POS. My old *** feed line is leaking like a ****. Leaking a drop every 2 seconds or so... Pretty damn bad.
I'm looking for something cheap (just need it to last through winter, as I'm doing a 1.8 swap in spring), checked EBay, and there are a million different lines and a million different fittings. I ASSUME I can remove the bango, and engine block fitting from this one, and put them on the new line, but I would like to get an all new set if possible

Can anybody point me to what I'm trying to find? Or better yet.... Any of you HAVE what I'm looking for, and willing to sell???

Found this.... But 40 inch line seems like an awful lot of unnecessary line.... I COULD wrap it around the engine once or something... :P

Maybe something better, and more specific, than the vague eBay listings...

Your car is a 1.6 NA? You could connect to the port under the exhaust manifold using hydraulic compression banjo fittings and a 18 inch hard line. The thread on the block size is m10 x 1.5. I think Greddy td04's have m10 x 1.25 pitch oil feed? I drill out cap screws to make the banjo bolts as it easy to incorporate an oil restrictor if needed.



I usually use steel for the oil feed line but I guess copper is also ok.

Nice... that would be pretty awesome actually.
Im gonna have to get those fittings


The initial problem (besides Greddy, and 1.6) Is that the way the line was routed, it went around the heatshield, down past the heater hoses, and into the block....
Well, that shelf under the heater hoses??? Yeah.... that ******* ate through the Steel braided line... lol
So, its spewing pretty vigorously... lol
I sprayed some brake parts cleaner around it, and wrapped the hell out of it with duct tape.
Gonna replace it, make it through winter, Do the swap in the spring (just finished rodding and sealing the 1.8) and never look back.

Exactly what i need! Thanks!
Everything else i found was either way too short, way too long, way too crappy, or way too expensive.

Alright, prices went up a bit since 2008, but its still under $40 for all the parts. i assume, based on the side of the banjos and bolts, that ill be using the port on the block next to the small port that my CURRENT line it attatched to. So, im gonna have to find a bolt to put in place of that port as well. But i think Lowes will be suitable for that application

I think you will keep using the same M10 x 1.5 port on the block as the bigger port is for coolant.
