Oil feed line routing

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I was wondering what the ideal way to route the turbo oil feed line is? 

The line that Tao supplied is so long it makes me think there is a particular reason for the length. 

I can only really think of 2 options, but both end up with a lot of excess line. I've attached a picture to show my thoughts. The squiggly lines aren't to scale but you get the idea lol

Red way. Not going between turbo/exh manifold.

We went the red way, and also wondered why it was so long.

Its likely extra long to account for top mount turbo manifolds

Maybe, but unlikely. These particular turbos are intended to be mounted in the stock location.

Make hard lines, more sexual (also you'll find out 90% of the words out of your mouth begin with C or F)

Ok, so taking on board everything said above - I've ended up with this. 

I'm thinking where the factory water bracket was, I can get a bracket made up to support the flexible oil and water lines that will run through there.

I would of ran it like the red diagram, not next to the dump pipe.

And maybe use some heat proof sleeve over it too.

I think your right. 3rd times the charm!

Originally I was worried about it getting too close to the oil drain line, but the bit it's near is metal.

Also, would you not flip the hose around so the 90 degree is off the turbo and it's a nice gentle arch all the way to the fitting on the block?

Here's what I did before with my ex Hypergear ATR45SAT (great turbo, just got carried away with the TS route then replaced it before I tuned it).

It can touch the oil drain line, exhaust not so much!

Yep, I've flipped it around and put the heat shielding stuff on it too. I'll get a photo up a bit later.

just putting it oot there...you can also just buy an AN4 stainless end and cut to a suitable length, get rid of the excess. Tao just prob does it that way to avoid emails of ' the line supplied is too short!" so makes it plenty long.

I wish I could have come up with this myself... especially as I made up that water line =/

Could have got the proper size heat shielding too rather then putting -6 shielding on it to clear  the fittings...
