Default Banjo bolt

Hi,

Wtb: banjo bolt for the oil feed line for my Greddy turbo.

Anyone?

I used this one on my Greddy turbo after I had broken the stock one:

BrakeBest® Hardware/Hydraulics H9486-2 - Hose Inlet (Banjo) Bolt | O'Reilly Auto Parts

It's almost identical in length to the stock bolt, though it has only one hole along the diameter of the bolt so I drilled another on the opposite side. Probably unnecessary, but it took only a couple minutes.

Thanks!

The same happened to me

It seems the hole in this bolt is smaller, did you drill it larger, or not necessary?

I used something very similar when I upgraded the oil plumbing on my Greddy years ago.

Protip: the flow requirement of a journal-bearing turbo is fairly minimal. Some folks prefer their hole small and tight.

The hole on the bottom is slightly smaller. I drilled it out a bit but it probably wasn't necessary. As Joe said, it should flow enough.
