Lowes/home depot are definitely not hydraulic supply stores.


A quick google search gave me these results:

First-Stop Hose & Hydraulics
9203 Enterprise Ct # V
Manassas Park, VA 20111
(703) 330-3310

Colliflower Inc
7635-D Fullerton Drive
Springfield, VA 22153
(703) 866-0600

Colliflower should for sure be able to do it. The other place doesn't have a web site so I'm not sure but colliflowers description is "Hydraulic and Pneumatic Hose, Hose Assemblies, Fittings, Steel and Stainless Steel Tube, Adapters, Metric Fittings, Quick Couplers, Brass Fittings, and so much more! 24/7 Pager 410-759-0268"

BTW, you need a -4AN stainless steel line and two fittings, one for the block, one for the turbo. The one for the block needs to be a M10 x 1.5 to -4AN fitting, the one for the turbo it looks like you already have in the pic with the blue line, bring that in with you if that threads into the turbo.

thanks guys i did te search and i was able to find colliflower but they are not open on weekends :( any way i called BEGI like stephanie suggested and guess what some one picked up the phone and unless i heard them wrong they introduced themselves as the "Janitor" and then he started helping me with my issue and he knew exactly what i was talking about (man even the janitors in BEGI know their $hit) any way he explained that i am indeed missing a 90 connection and i can call tomorrow morning and they can overnight that to me. SWEET

also now that SAM got me scared i think i might go ahead and see if i can get a steel line from BEGi as well.

once again thanks alot guys and stephanie i might be the only guy with these problems but you may want to take a pic of the oil feed line on the turbo ( a non steel one) with the 90* connector.

Finally turned the keys today and everything working. Thanks everyone for the help...
There is only one problem, there is a small gap between the exhaust manifold and the Engine. Its leaking. What should i do? Get another gasket? or is there any thing i can put on top to seal it?

Did you happen to smash the heater core hardline between the manifold and head, that is a common mistake. Your turbo will never spool like it should if you don't fix the leak. Get a new gasket and make sure your nuts are torqued correctly.

Gotta love Corky's humor! Usually he answers 'Police station' or 'fire dept'....

That's funny. When this thread was started, I had a feeling the janitor was Corky.
