If I’m understanding you correctly, yes I think you could get a Tee fitting that would allow you to do what your inquiring about.

Thanks. Essentially I mean simply taking the small
line from oil cooler and routing it to the mixing manifold like stock (I will use the skunk2 tb so. I like but retain factory oil cooler)

Thank you for making this. Just ordered a replacement $100 factory water inlet and then saw this. Returning that factory part!

I'm going to have a 5/16" barb welded into the center of the hump for the turbo feed. The oil warmer lines are the same size. Will post a pic once it is done.

Ended up buying a fitting from home depot and ordering a tap for it off of amazon instead of welding. You'll need to make the 7/16" hole yourself and then tap it for the fitting. The 3/8 barb adapter fit my 5/16" ID turbo coolant hose a little snug, but it works.

Will post a pic tomorrow when it is done.

Here is the tap and fitting.

As promised, pics of the inlet adapter with a 3/8 ID barb to connect to the turbo. Tapping the thread for the 1/4 NPT is no joke. You need a good vise and a big tap wrench.

Awesome man. You wasted no time. This pretty much solidified my purchase of this inlet. Thank you.

Just to confirm, this will not work with power steering correct?

Thanks for the updated pictures. I wasn't exactly sure where you were headed initially, but I like you're creativity!

I don't have a car in the shop at the moment to verify, but I would be very surprised if the inlet fit with the PS pump in its oem location. I may be looking at running PS in my car at some point, so making a retrofit kit might be something that happens at some point.

Is -16AN large enough on the radiator lines? I'm looking at a similar project, and hose lines seem to be -20AN (which is tough at best to find).

The factory hose is -16AN or smaller. Look at the outlet on the mixing manifold and you'll be surprised how small it is vs what you'd think it would be.

Awesome can you confirm they are orb ports. It looks like in the picture on the site it is NPT.


Thank you!
