no the 1.25 thread pitch will not work.

you could use the 10x1.5 to -4an adapter with a -4an to -3an coupler...

or get the stock bolt drilled out and a -3an steel weld fitting welded on it

the -3 side wont thread onto the end of my oil feed line. so im assuming -4 is the closer size. i was told the thread size for the greddy feed line that goes to the block is -3 but its to small......

If you're talking about the braided oil hose and accessories that came with the kit, neither a -3AN or a -4AN will work. The fittings on that hose are metric. The discussion about it being close to -4AN refers to the inner diameter of the hose, but this doesn't make the crimped ends on it compatable with a -AN fitting.

To the best of my knowledge, nobody has ever found a source for fittings that are comapatable with that hose, at least in the US anyway. You may simply have to replace the entire oil feed line. This was covered in a recent thread, where I gave you two links to follow. Basically, you buy the following:

M10x1.5 fitting (at block)
M10x1.5 to -(x)AN adaptor
-(x)AN hose end, hose, and another hose end
-(x)AN elbow (optional)
-(x)AN to M10x1.25 fitting (banjo preferred) for input to turbo

Where (x) is either 3 or 4, depending on your whim and the avaliability of parts.

driftm, tell me how long of a -3 line you want and I can get it for you. Hillco fasteners is right next to my school and they have premade ones for -3 at whatever length you want from 6 inches to almost 2 feet! The most expensive ones are around $20. Give me a ring or ship a message my way if you want.
