hey mate do you have a pic of the bottom coolant fitting on your turbo? Just wondering where it points to, I'm trying to figure out what to do with mine (possibly cut, rotate and reweld)
Nah mate I don't. I just used the stock outlet with standard oil hose to the value cover but honestly I'm not the happiest about it. When/if I have the engine out again I'd want to change it to an AN fitting and braided hose at least.
On a quick note I pickup a T-Stat housing and thermostat off a EJ204 which has the front facing water pump. I'm weighing up whether to get a Gates or a GMB water pump. Anyone have any experience/preference with either? Or what gaskets/seals would I need to get?
Are you possibly talking about your oil drain there?
Whoops haha. Yeah sorry long day. I kept the bottom outlet in the stock location but I rotated the top inlet 180 degree so it was facing towards the center of the firewall. With the outlet I just ran the hose around the back of the turbo as I didn't think it was much of an issue. I can get a photo of the top if needed but its pretty simple as it can only bolt up 2 ways once the outlet/inlet piece has been split.
