Tomcat Turbo oil feed?
« on: 21:47, Fri 04 May 2012 »
Ive got a nice turbo from the site, its all fitted nicely but i have no idea what to use for the oil feed.
What do you guys running them use?

I used a standard R5 oil feed (a braided one, but original thread sizes), but I had to pop up to my local Pirtek and get an adapter made up.

The adapter is the bit i need,
Can you remember what it was you ordered?
atm the standard feed isnt long enough even if i got something. It needs to be about 10mm longer anyway

I have no idea.

I took both ends in, and then they came up with the solution. I don't understand the thread sizes for these fittings.  :?
