Default Steel Oil Feed Adapters @ Trackspeed

We made our own high-quality oil feed adapter for use with our turbo kits, but figured that it's something that virtually everyone can use. It does the same job as a standard brass male run tee, but it's machined from steel for strength and zinc-plated for corrosion resistance and longevity. It's specifically designed to maximize cross-sectional area, so it will never break. Don't use a brass tee! Engine vibration will break a brass tee and cause a major oil leak.

If you're turbocharging a 1995-2005 Miata, you need this part.

$25 includes free USPS shipping. Add $2 for a steel 1/8"NPT to -4AN adapter.

All backorders shipping today. These are in stock. The production parts are zinc plated for extra sexy-time.

Could a second NPT port be added by you prior to shipping? Maybe an optional add for those that wish to use it for both oil feed and oil temp?

Most oil temp sender's are too long to be used with something like that. I had one made that uses a 1/4npt and a brass adapter to space it out.

No, sorry. They aren't machined in-house, and we don't have the bandwidth to make custom alterations.

Thank you for the suggestion. Could I bother you for a pic? I really don't want to use the oil drain bolt method and neither am I able to find a sandwich adapter with both oil cooler and ports so am trying to figure another way of running a temp gauge.

Take this to my build thread, there are pics on the last few pages. I'd rather not muddy up Andrews product announcement thread.
