Be careful... quite a few people have had the feed pipe on these crack :(

There are better versions around that have a reinforced feed pipe.

How the heck do they brake that? Mine has plenty of hose on it and no tension.

As I told you in the PM, the vibration, poor material quality, thin flange, thin wall tubing, not to mention the distance from the fitting to the flange will put a lot of leverage on the weld area.

If you know someone who can weld decently just get them to beef it up a little and you're good to go.

I'm just curious, what's wrong with the hard lines Toyota designed. As long as there are no kinks or cracks it doesn't get much more reliable.

Like I said mine is a bit custom but just finished the other day:
800
The fitting from KO Racing is -12 an so had to adapt it down a bit...
799
Had to use a 90 degree on the pan and 45 degree on the flange to get the 10'' drain line to fit. Feed line is right from the block.
798
How do you think the line will hold up to heat? Mine is close to the exhaust, going to heat wrap that area. Seems the inside of the line is poly, hope it doesn't melt.

Its -12 for a very good reason.
If you make the return too small, oil pressure builds up in the turbo and seeps past the seals.

-10 an is fine in my opinion. Not a big deal that it is -12 an though, I should've bought a 90 degree -12 an instead of adapting it to -10 an first. Would save room and maybe the line would reach the turbo. Oh well....lol
