Default Mad tyte JDM turbo boost drift horsepower nawz oil lines are bull-poo.

Fo' Cerial.

I got a set of oil lines a while back from some flebay seller. They were like 45 bucks shipped for the feed and return with fittings.

Those are all the fittings that it comes with. See the fitting in a red box? That's the one that fits the drill and tap that BEGI sells. The problem? None of the other fittings match up with it. I wouldn't be so irked if it didn't come at all, but the fact that they included it but not any fittings for it is retarded.

Also, the oil feed hasn't fit any of the three turbos I've had. I seriously doubt it actually fits and of the turbos it was advertised to be for. Luckily about 2.50 at a hardware store for an adapter fixed that rather easily. But still, a bit stupid. Surprisingly though, the block fitting is actually the right size. Go them for that.

That being said, the feed line is remarkably good quality for a chinese part, apart from not fitting as it was advertised. The return line isn't bad, but it's fraying quite badly and is incredibly painful to get a handful of.

Long story short, you get what you pay for. Just thought I'd post a warning so no one else makes the same mistake I do.
