Default Oil return and some random **** questions.

I got a drill bit and tap for a 3/8" NPT sized hole (begi's I assume) from a member here and I just need to finish ordering parts. I have a 5/8" slip on fitting on the turbo already, so I just need:

3/8 NPT male to 5/8" nipple < This work?

About...2 feet of 5/8" Silicone hose...can I get high temp silicone hose anywhere? or is there a certain type recommended?

GM Boost Solenoid

GM Boost Solenoid...connector:

I think that is all I need now. The GTI is running worth a **** and should be reliable from here on the boostage can begin.

ATP sells a high-temp silicone drain hose specifically made for oil. Don't know whether it's the same **** as anyone else sells; but Summit probably has it too.

For the fitting why not just get a brass one from Home Depot, works just the same.
