Default Who has the straight dope on water/oil lines?

I'm looking for a good place to learn myself on the best way to go about contructing the oil and water lines (and where they are plumbed on the BP) for maximum simplicity and longevity. I'm pretty familiar with the rest of a DIY turbo setup, but this part for some reason scares and confounds me. Are there any one-stop-shopping type places for this kind of stuff? Just so you know how dumb I am about this stuff, I have no idea what NPT, -AN, or banjo means. I've seen them plenty, but I have no idea what they are.

I'm almost tempted to get a S1 supercharger just for the simplicity and quick install.

Learn me so I can enjoy the superior torque and speed of a turbo.

Ok just read post again. Do you want to purchase a feed/drain kit or piece it all together yourself?

Okay, here's something to get you started....

I have that drain, and it's ridiculously overqualified.

If you just want individual parts, I'd try Jegs or Summit, Etc.

That JGS stuff is exactly like I'm looking for, but I'd really need in a T25 compatible fitment. Also looking for coolant lines, which I understand is harder to do well and keep alive near the turbo. I wish that damn distribution block wasn't so expensive from BEGi, it's a sweet piece and exactly what I'm looking for.

this is how i plumbed my turbo. it's overkill, but i wanted it this way. i can tell you what you need if you want something a bit less complicated.

you could probably get everything you need from FM, but it'll cost you.
