i found this 1/8 BSP Oil "T" Fitting fitting for a t off the back of my block so i can keep my stock oil pressure sensor and have a feed to my turbo.



it looks like alright quality, but my main concern was the thread. it is kinda hard to tell in the photo if it does actually have a tapered thread.

because it doesn't specify that it is BSPT or BSPP it just says BSP.

has anyone ran this fitting before? or tried to buy it and it turned out to be the wrong one?

i did look at the rest of the fittings they sell labeled BSP and from the photo's i could see that they are tapered.

the main reason i wanted to get this one other than a better know fitting maker is this is the only place i have found so far with that layout of the male and female.

i am also thinking of running the feed to the turbo with steel brake line so i don't have to worry about rubbing anywhere and i have all the tools to do it and some spare line.

as far as i have read around 1/4" should be fine for turbo feed line size.

any thoughts appreciated! :TU:

I use
this block adapter

with these adaptors

And this T

And this restrictor

Connect it to the block with this hose and mount it on the firewall somewhere. Use thread tape on the pipe fittings, but not on the AN fittings, spun the RIGHT way.

Pretty cheap too.

sweet that is awesome thanks

oh and i just got a email back from them saying that it is a tapered fitting.

i may have to go a different rout with what i am thinking of doing now to get the correct adapters and such.

That let me plug in my Turbo feed after the restrictor and the sensor before it on the T. You really don't need the stock sender it is just the dummy light <9psi.

I hate sandwhich plates and all their lack of accessibility and the leaks.

the oil light would be on all the time if you just unplugged it wouldn't it?
or is there a way to disable that?

it wouldn't be hard to just keep it on there

I've used a sandwich and Mine was a fucking PITA. mfactory unit, I like it but getting it to not leak was impossible.

Using a T on my next build. And, Using a T, the turbo gets filtered oil. Using a plate turbo get oil pre filtration. Do you really want to be sending unfiltered oil into your turbo??

there are sandwich adapters that filter the oil i just dont remember which ones, sandwich adapters are the easiest route imo and the oil gets filtered at some point so its not like your running pure unfiltered oil through all the time. my sandwich doesnt leak any oil just make sure the block is clean in the area and you lube the oring on the sandwich adapter then tighten her down

personally i tapped my block to npt and stuck a steel fitting that runs to a 3an then to a tee.
off topic... with my setup i have a 4' that feeds the tee from the block. off my my tee is my Turbo oil feed and the other is my pressure gauge. will this setup kill pressure a lot?

i had a v1 glowshift oil filter adapter . it sucked. also had a v2. it also sucks. the o ring is a bitc* with the engine in the car.

I kinda wonder if thats whats happening with my sending unit because I lost hot idle oil pressure going from 10w-30 to 5w-40

The oil light stays off when you unplug the sender unit.

okay that's awesome i thought it would just stay on all the time. and just to make sure vtec checks oil pressure throught the vtec solenoid right so it would still engage right?

Brass breaks. Anyone who hasn't had it happen is like someone who rides a motorcycle: not if you dump but when.

Use a steel fitting to a looped line to a T.
okay no point in going brass then thanks for the tips. i probably just do the loop to the T idea.

all from the same place just to make it easy comes out to $34.50 not too bad
going to run a line off the back to a T somewhere by the right side of the intake manifold or the firewall then to the turbo from there.

thanks the toaster, beaver and everyine else for the help.

also am i right in thinking that all the small brass fittings will be fine? just the bigger brass T's and such that crack when they aren't supported right?
