A lot of broken parts does not make you a racer; it makes you a slow learner.

Looking real good. I spec'ed it out and came up with $118.87 shipped with American money. Upside ill have 2'10" of extra hose as it comes in 3' sections.

Nice Work!

After seeing the size of the -10 I would not go any smaller. I even ran a 1/2 drill thru the vibrant fitting because I thought it looked small.

Odd. -10 is 5/8".  A 1/2" drill shouldn't have made any chips.  -8 is supposed to 1/2".

I made mine out of -12 and dumped it straight into the pan but I can't recall the exact ID of those fittings.

It was just the Vibrant fitting it did not do much but did open it up a little, with the OD being 5/8 it brings the ID close to half inch with the wall of the hose plus the fitting being pressed into it, these things are mass produced who knows what happens with the tooling after they make a few thousand.


I was just being cautious I wanted to ensure there was no restrictions at the narrowest point, last thing I wanted was oil collecting and my turbo seals failing prematurely.

well that did not work as planned.......
Apparently Cottons has a repop available should have listened to Brad stock Junk always works best.
I installed my stock turbo to confirm the results.


So my question is how pouched is the turbo?
It still feels tight no oil on the inlet side there is a metal oil ring on the turbine side works like a piston ring from what I have researched  and all the locals say they will not touch a Turbonetics turbo.
A buddy is going to lend me his stock line for the week end.
