Default Braided lines for turbo question

I think its time for me to switch to braided lines for oil supply and drain at least. Right now I have a setup that comes with Begi-s kit. So all hoses are rubber. Is there any easy kit for drain and supply that is braided? I guess my question is what connectors i should i get? The drain on both ends is set up for rubber hoses so i know i will have to get a different connector that screws into the oil pan, but i have no idea what kind and where to get it. Same goes for the turbo side.

For the supply it should be easier because right now its got a screw on 90% elbows that stick into the hoses.

Any links or suggestions would be helpful. Maybe pics of your set up would help too.

I have a begi-s kit with gt2554 turbo.

and another quick question what size is the drain plug on the 1.8l LSD diff? I need a new drain plug washer so i am interested in the size of the bolt itself.

We offer two easy kits for those parts too.
Oil supply line kit is here:

If you do not need the oil inlet fitting for the turbo, we can always remove it and knock down the price.

Same thing for the oil drain line kit. Since you already have the flange, we could send everything else.

Perfect. I looked on your website but could not find anything. I guess I was not looking in the right place.

Make sure the fitting is the same thread as the line.
