Default Oil Feed Adapter

Ok, i did some searching for about an hour here, and on DSM web sites last night, and could not find a definitive answer. So im going to bug all of you with an age old discussion.

I am going to run a 13g turbo from an eclipes, it is the turbo that was used on the automatic eclipse, as where the 14b was used on the manual eclipses. The 13g is a td04, and the 14b is a td05, but im thinking they should have the same thread in the oil, and water ports.

This is like the last thing i have to figure out before my turbo system will be ready to install. I ordered a oil feed line with a -4 AN female end on each end, so i need to know what adapter i need to connect to the turbo. I need to know what thread size the oil inlet is on my turbo, as well as the water inlet and outlet are.

Thanx

It could be 7/16-24 maybe, but it could be also be a metric fitting. You can test that by taking the turbo to a hardware store and trying miscellaneous bolts in till you either do or don't find one in there. Samnavy might know the actual thread though.

The 14b/16g oil inlet is a 12mm x 1.5, and the water ports are 14mm x 1.5.

I imagine the 13g is same/similar.

some of tthe stuff i had read was saying 10mm, and it was mixed between a 1.0, 1.25, and 1.5 pitch thread,

I just measured the holes in the center section, and the oil inlet is just over 8mm, so im guessing that its a 10mm, and the water hols measured just over 10mm, so im sure those are the 12mm... now i just have to figure out what the thread pitch is on the 10mm.

I happen to have a TD05H in the garage and an extra oil feed line for my T25. The fitting is not the same.
That's all the info I've got... not much help on this one.

EDIT: Just found the size for the T25... it's 1/4" inverted flare, here is the exact fitting I use: http://www.theperformancedriver.com/...productid=3718
But you're interested in a 13G... still no help here I guess.
