damn they didn't give you that stuff?? well greddy for a fact takes a longggg time on that kind of stuff if you tell them its missing and wait for them to ship it you could have got the oil hose parts and had it made for cheaper by then..

Do like the majority of Greddy kit owners do for the return line - tap the oil pan and be done with it !

the return like is just like a rubber tube that goes to a nipple on the left of the engine that is capped off right under the alternator by the oil filter so that tubing can be braided that won't be a problem to get at a hardware store.. as for the oil feed line it could also be purchased at an auto store. or hardware if you know what your looking for. youll have to have the right ends on each end. like around here we have Napa auto parts and they do stuff like that.

masblue, be sure and search before posting a question. This board isn't very tolerant of newbie questions. To help answer your question though, see this link:
https://www.miataturbo.net/forum/sho...&highlight=OIL

I just purchased all new oil supply parts as my used Greddy kit was missing some stuff as well. I can't help with the oil drain as I used 5/8 hose and a heater hose bung, not SS line. I did drill and tap the pan though. Enjoy the extra horses!

Here are some pics from my install. No sign-in required.
http://www.kodakgallery.com/I.jsp?c=...&x=0&y=-3yxgmd

The "oil pressure hose" that Greddy is calling out is replaced by the -3 SS line in my setup:
ANPlumbing 63010132 -3AN SS line Female swivel both ends, -3 hose, 32" long $14.69

Basically if you order the parts I listed, it will be every part you need for the oil supply.

The fuel line is just a short section of 5/16" (I think) fuel hose to go from the Vortech back to the hard line. You can get that at Napa, Autozone, etc. 1-2 feet should be plenty.

Sorry if this is obvious, but make sure the fuel line you get is for fuel injected applications.

you can use your stock ECU. The FPR will raise the base fuel pressure. But like someone else will probably say... MS is the way to go and will save you hassle and time in the end. 700 for PNP 300 for DIY
