Default Oil Fitting Help

Hello everyone, I'm new here and I'm trying to trubo my '95 Miata but I can not seem to find where to get the M10 X 1.5 to -4AN fitting at. That is the only thing holding me back from finishing my install. Any helps and links would be very helpful. Thank you.

http://www.anplumbing.com/shop/index.php

#97641 -4 10mm Banjo Adapter -4 male to 10mm Hole diameter .425 height $6.18

#977520 10mm x 1.5 .425 Banjo bolt single. Includes crush washers $4.18

Will those work? Cause they're cheap and make for a clean install. I guess you need to say if you just want an inline adapter or if you want something to bolt into your CHRA(bearing housing).

Correct me if I'm wrong, but you're looking for something more like:

9919BFD 10MM X 1.5 to -4AN Metric thread male to AN adapter male. $6.90

It's from the same site. Good site by the way!

There you go, I looked quick for that but wasn't able to find one ina short amount of time. I'm ordering my oil lines from that site tomorrow along with my fittings in order to get rid of the hightemp silicone lines that came on the car.

I was under the impression that the thread is M10 X 1.25....

Can anyone confirm this please.

I don't know if the Aus cars are different, but in the states they're m10x1.5. I bought from summitracing, a m10x1.5 to 4an, then a 4an 90* that points straight up. I run my line up the dipstick (both heat shielded) and over the top of the turbo straight down into the it. Total line length is about 20"

-10 AN line with 1/2" NPT fitting in the oil pan. I have a T3 flange bolted to my pan but most people just drill and tap the pan with some JB weld as a sealant which also helps structurally support it.

anyone want to lend me their 1/2" npt tap and handle for my turbo install over thanksgiving? I'll mail it back right when I'm done. Any money I can save by not having to buy one time use tools is great in my book.

I'm pretty sure they're less than $10 at Autocrap or something similar, might have been O'Reilly that i saw the tap at though. Could be worth the money to buy your own, use a wrench that fits the tap and go for it. Atleast it would save you time and trouble trying to borrow one.
If I had one i'd hook you up, but I don't sorry. The hardest part will be drilling the appropriate sized hole in the pan in that small area.
