Default Turbo water line banjo pipe help

Ok, so my turbo is oil/water cooled. Have the oil lines but not the water lines.
need the banjo fitting thingies that look like this and measure 14mm


Where is the best place to get them? I found some on egay for $28 shipped but have a problem with the seller and would rather not buy from there. Whats a good site to get these from? I'm starting the install next week and would REALLY like to get this answered asap so I dont get held up.

Thanx guys
-Vlad

I believe I have a set of used one's you can have. I changed mine out to the hardline type, so I won't need them anymore. Let me know if you want them. You might want to replace the crush washers. I can't guarantee their ability to seal.

Let me get them and check. They came off a GT2560.

I have them in my hand, and they are 14 mm. Like I said, you will need new crush washers. PM me your mailing address and I will drop them in the mail.

Call up tuner toys if u don't get them from "Kmag". I'm sure they would be willing to sell pieces of their water line kit.

Id certainly pay a bit extra to be sure I got good ones that wouldnt break. Ive had terrible luck in the past with the bolt breaking the head off around the holes, and ending up having to fish out the threaded section, and source another bolt, which cant seem to be done local. Ends up always being a week long mess. Surely dont try to over tighten them.

email and pm sent with address...
I have new bolts and crush washers, so all I need are the actual fittings.
Thank you so much man, I really appreciate it.

Vlad,

I mailed them out yesterday. You should get them around the end of the week. Good luck on your project.
