Default Where did you buy your turbo oil feed line??

I was planning on using Artech's oil feed kit, but my block does not have the oild feed line on the driver side. I will have to source my oil from the pressure sender location.

Where did you buy your line that goes from the turbo to the pressure sender, and what was the length of your line.

I know this will be turbo setup dependent so if you have a begi or fm setup that would be great. If not, still post so that way I can get an estimate.

The wiki site says no less than 42" iirc, but that is pretty vague

That is helpful. Thanks from me for the info, too. I am in for info regarding length, as well, although I may use diy fittings so I can cut the hose to length at home.

That kit looks like a winner.

Quick question. Are you 96+ guys really using a 42"-48" line? 4 feet of line seems awful long. Djp, don't forget to prime the turbo.

Yes, mine is pretty damn huge. Although I don't think mine is quite 42" (From FM). I think it is shown in one of the pictures in my build thread.

yup. oil pressure sender is under the middle of the intake mani.

i sure hope nobody is boosting before they have oil pressure... but it probably doesn't matter on ball bearing turbos. journal bearing might be an issue. maybe that's why there's all those failures? a second or two of dry bearing at startup...?

Yes. Mine was just shy of 48. IIRC, 46". Was perfect by the time I routed it around the back and tied it off to the brake booster hard line.

I know this will probably sound stupid, but it probably is a good question?

How do you go about priming a turbo???? Can you just turn the engine over with no spark???

I just squirted some in with a syringe and screwed on the line before the first startup. It holds enough to get it wet until the line pressure fills. It isn't going to be turning any RPM.

really easy to make your own and then you know it is the exact right size. I'm doing fuel lines now and it's actually kinda fun to work with.

After researching building one myself, this is the best price $42 since it includes the proper adapters for NPT and BSPT.
