Default Need water line banjo fitting for Garrett turbo

Anybody in Atlanta know where I could get one preferably same-day? The PO wasn't careful about routing lines and the braided oil line rubbed a pinhole in the line under the turbine.

He also didn't replace the rear main seal when he replaced the clutch. I found out where my quart per 500 miles was going!

Which banjo fitting type do you have? Either AN type or barbed type?
I have 2 spare barb type since I switched to all stainless lines.

I ditched the banjo fitting. I ran a 14mm to 6AN and then a 6AN 90 degree to hose barb.

What water carrying part did you tap to put in the AN fittings?

Used the typical spots, utilized hardline to AN adapters. I did a write up of it on here: https://www.miataturbo.net/forum/showthread.php?t=23366

Here's what I am using on a Garrett, in combination with high temp silicone from barbs to engine.

^^^ I thought about doing something like that, but wanted fewer connection points. However, it does allow for a return to stock configuration, but I figure that my car is way past that point, and I'll probably never sell it, so no matter.

Rotornut, check your PMs. I'm interested in your banjos.
