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.

I did the exact same thing for my turbo coolant fittings, no issues running a water hose right over the turbine housing.
