Man, are you guys sure the TD04H-15G needs a -3AN? I've got a very similar Mitsubishi turbo and the lines spec'd for it in Volvo's application were closer to 1/4" (-4AN) than 3/16" (-3AN)...and mine is water-cooled as well. Yours being oil-fed and -cooled means the slight increase in oil volume from a -4AN probably wouldn't be harmful in the least.

I've been running mine with a -4AN line for several thousand miles now.

all he lists is a 10mm x 1.0 or 1/8" (N/M just saw the 1/8"BSPT fitting, which is the equivalant to 1/8" PF)


It's really that they need a -3AN line, but if that's what comes with the kit and all he needs is a fitting to make it work, seems shitty to have to replace the whole feed. If one was building something from scratch it would be way easier to just source -4AN supply fittings and lines.
