I am currently using AN fittings with a steel braided hose.

With my new turbo and manifold my old steel braided hose and AN fittings wont work because the turbo sits close to the ground and there for the hose is to long.

What other type of hose and fittings would work?

I was thinking along the lines of barbed fittings going into the turbo and using a hi temp resistant rubber hose...

never had one fail on me either.

if u can find a formed 90 degree hose that would work well!

i have the fittings that come with the go autoworks kit for my oil drain from turbo and to pan... would that still work with a hose? i guess i would need clamps?

I always have my hoses custom made at a hydraulic shop... Its cheap and they stock high temp, high pressure hoses and fittings. Never had a failure on feed line or drain line.

They are expensive, but they can work with different matterials. Like stainless fittings to stainless tubing, brass fittings to copper tubing. I can get a number to a local vender and ask them questions for you.

would it be ok if the center housing (drain flange) is a bit tilted and not 100% pointing straight down?

Agree i use the same thing and its formed it cost like 10 bux. I change mine every 2 oil changes. When you go to Autzone, napa or w.e ask them if you can go threw the heater hoses with them, and you will find the best one. then write the part number down yo.

Yea , mine isn't perfectly straight up and down. As long as it can freely drain down it'll be fine.

I've had a cheap piece of clear re-enforced hose from Ace hardware on for 5+ years or so? I like it because I can see the oil hehe. Hasn't failed me yet.
