    mine drain is made of high-temp silicon hoses and a large brass fitting with barbed ends to step it down in size to suit the sump - you could do the same with a 90 degree brass fitting. Brass fittings are available from most hose suppliers (in BNE i use harvey's hoses, Pirtek, Enzed or a diesel spares shop)

    yeah, your pirtek and the likes will always go the "NO" option when they think something is a little harder to do than their usual.

    Oil return is always pretty easy to knock up, doesn't require a whole hell of a lot of hardware, no pressure, all that....

    pirtek are the biggest bunch of useless pricks. I dont recommend them for anything at all. Enzed are better and if you want the best part tht will work properly only go to earls or somewhere like motorsport connections.

    i found pirtek at hornsby allright.....prob coz the dude there looked after me, gave us good discounts n shit....

    i got all my lines and fittings there...except for the oil return 90' bend,

    but i tool my turbo in to them, and asked for the fitings and they had them ready on the shelf, and made my braided lines on the spot,

    Yeah motorsport connection at seven hills is a really good hose/fitting/performance shop, a little expensive but they are very helpful and always have what you need

    lucky you he had the parts both times i hav gone there once with the turbo he said "oh na i..ii caaant help with that!! you hav to go to garrett or something!!" then second time just for a brass 5/8 t piece " na sorry mate got nothing!! does anywhere actually make them?? coz i hav neva heard of one??"
    and yeah motorsport connections are a little $$ but im trying to do a mix (good stuff where it is really needed and so on)
    but yeah enzed in brookvale really wanted to help so i will be goin there the the turbo water lines!!

    DO NOT get turbo fittings and lines from enzed (especially brookvale). they are way to expensive, and half the time I get stuff made there it causes problems, ive had a powersteering line come back from them completely blocked.

    I recommend motorsport connections in seven hills (just off the m2), complete line setup for my apexi turbo,ie earls fittings, braided line, hose for oil return cost under $300, whereas enzed were quoting way more than that.

    motorsport connections actually know stuff about cars, and they have a bigger range of fittings.

    Interesting people's experiences! Personally I find both my local Pirtek and Enzed pretty good and willing to help with stuff. For turbo returns sometime's it's a good idea (better, cheaper, more reliable) to use a metal pipe bent in the shape you want, rather than use too many bits of hose/fittings.

    5m air injection hose is oil resistant and is 5/8 , perfect for turbo return
