Introducing the MKTurbo oil line kit. The oil line kit will come with a -4an feed line and restrictors, -8an drain line, a tee block and fittings to bolt in at the oil pressure sender port on the block, drain fitting for the oil pan, and the input and outputs for the turbo. Basically everything you need to oil the turbo is included except for the drill bit and tap needed to tap your oil pan. The AN lines and fitting are all Aeroquip and covered in fire sleeve, they are locally made at a hydraulic shop. Price shipped is going to be $175 for the continental US.

Here are the lines and the engine block fittings. Missing the pieces that attache to the turbo, will get pictures of those tonight.


Oil drain line.


Oil feed line.

Quick update. I test fitted the kit tonight and my only complaint (very small) was that I had to trim that rear extra hanger just slightly and I had to hammer a bit of the body where the Downpipe goes at the back. Lastly. I wish the O2 bung was further back closer to the turret. Hopefully I have enough extra line(haven't checked yet) I'm sure I do.

Other than that. Best Damn Kit I have owned. I had more trouble with that damn FM2. I have used BEGi kit and it was slightly better than the FM but damn Lars this thing fits really good overall. I really enjoy the fit of the Downpipe back. For it being 3 inches it fits extremely well. I use to have the enthuza catback and test pipe and it fitted like ****. I am very very very impressed so far with the MKturbo set up. Way to go Lars! You deserve a handy from six shooter :P

Honestly I am completely baffled why so many people keep wanting to give me money. I have a total of 4 MKTurbo setups out in the wild, only 1 of them is running on a car right now, and it isn't even the T3 setup. We have zero data how well the turbos work, how everything fits, and how long they will last. It baffles me, but hey I am a capitalist and I like money, so I will take it.

I will start talking future orders after I finish the group buy, get my 3 personal miata's running how I want them to, and finish the 1.6 setup. After all that I will get in contact with people who have EMAILED me and go down my list and start taking orders.

I want to buy a 1.6 turbo setup for my 1.8 so it spools even faster.

It's simple, you have the most well thought out basic log hot side, at a competitive price. Which is based on years of experience with what was available before the MK turbo. It is aluminized so I can fix it myself if necessary. Many of us have been wanting to try a cheap turbo and as you said this is the only one with any decent spool data. I can think of more reasons but I will let someone else chime in.

Update. Now that the exhaust has heated up the poly hangers it does rub on the 94+ chassis support. Not sure if a short hanger exist to pick it up off the brace.

Did you stretch those band clamps over the hangers to keep them from stretching?

This is one big heavy muffler.

Getting around the diff and that stupid brace is the hardest thing to do with the setup. On the NA's it is even harder then NB's due to the 94/95 having 2 part axles. Also have to try to make sure the exhaust does not hang down to low and become lowest part of the car. I would do what deezums suggests and wrap worm clamps around the hangers and tighten them up to see if that helps.

I think I have a slightly better way to clear around that stuff, but it won't be after the group buy is done that I get a chance to try it. Need some slightly different bends that are currently out of stock.

I was also thinking of adding some washers to space the brace off of the chassis a little. That and the worm clamps should give me some clearance. Other than that I'm still impressed with the fitment considering its 3inches, I have the brace, and I have the bolted half shafts. I will post pics eventually I am collecting all of them but don't want to post problems without solutions.

Did you use hose clamps on the poly hangers? That was a must for me using them.
