Default Oil feed adapter, 10MMx1.5MM to -3AN

Impossible to find? I've spent an hour trying to find this adapter for my setup and I'm losing hope. I've found 10x1.5 to -4AN link but I would prefer to run without a second adapter. I know I could run a -4AN line as an oil feed but I'd feel better with -3 and no restrictor. Any thoughts?

I don't see it on their webpage as just the fitting anymore, but www.stealthmodeperformace.com had -3AN when I was looking for -4AN. Might want to email them to see if they carry them and will sell just the fitting.

Interesting, I didn't consider using a banjo fitting. I know the OEM feed is banjo.. That's an option, though I would prefer a strait connection. Thanks

Buy a lathe.

Or, cut the -3AN end off of a steel fitting, get a 10x1.5mm steel bolt, drill a hole through the center of it, and weld the fitting to the bolt head.

I've seen it done.

I use a banjo fitting for my oil feed at -3AN. Works great.

I run a .035 restrictor. You should be worried about too much oil, not the other way around.

Yeah, I've been running a banjo feed with my journal-bearing, non-water-cooled Mitsu turbo for 4 years now. In fact, I'm using banjos on both ends of the supply line- at the block, and also at the CHRA itself. No track events, granted, but it doesn't get coddled.

+1 on that.. I have run into the too much oil situation. make sure you run a restrictor if the turbo calls for it.
