I have got some flanges for the turbo if you need so you can use braided lines.

Just wanted to drop my 2 cents in.. I did the exact same thing in regards to the oil feed/return pipe with the bend.. Under boost pressure, that kink where the bend is has a good chance of bursting.. i was driving on my way to the tuner and under boost that bend on the oil feed/return pipe bursted open and needless to say i never made it to the tuner. Just FYI.. Another option instead of bending the hard lines is to cut the hard line and weld AN fittings to them and run steel braided hoses.. that's where i'm at now with it.

yea you have to have a good feel for the metal not to fatigue it to much.

I did end up machining a flange to use on the ct2X turbos

yeah, especially with that smaller oil line.. but it's hard to get it shaped the way you want without over kinking the metal. i ended up cutting and welding an fittings on the end of them. i didn't want to risk busting it again on the road. great write up nontheless tho..

I have had the org. and a new supply line crack on me in the last two months... Anyone know of a kit with braided lines I can buy or instruction on to mod the stock one with braided lines.

I can make a kit for you, but I will need your measurements.

ebay also has a kit for this that comes with the steel braided lines.. after my second attempt to cut the hard lines and weld AN fittings to it, it still burst.. i ended up finding a kit on ebay for it that was pretty cheap.. still working as of now and i've had it on for a couple months now..

I saw the one on ebay but couldn't tell how it connected to the the block and oil pan.

what measurements would you need?

You can not weld the stock lines, to adapt them for use with AN fittings. My procedure is to braze them on, the lower temperature yields less stress on the part; thus no cracking issue. OEM equipment is brazed on, I have countless cars modified this way. No issues so far :)

Measurements would be the measurements of the lines you need in a length. Every kit is made to order, with countless turbo, position, options.
