the HK$ manual in the turbo FAQ has some good information in this.

also search for windor's 4agte project (the link i have to his site doesnt seem to be working for me), his braided oil line set-up is basicaly how i did mine on my 2nd 4agte (which is how the HK$ guy's did it). he has some good pics on his site showing how he did it.

I have some starting on this page. http://iacs5.ucsd.edu/~jmamczak/turbo/index_11.html

Oil lines go block>oil cooler>filter>block

For the coolant lines I used the stock piping from mitsubishi, just bent it for my purpose, and used the heater lines since I know longer use the heater.

This first picture gives a view of the engine compartment and shows the filter location. To the far right where the lines come up I used 3/8" SS tubing and just bent it to fit.

The second picture isn't very good. I tried to take it from under the car. What you see is the oil cooler adapter and with the oil filter adapter replaced with an aluminum plate I made. On top of that is the piece from perma cool that replaced the oil filter. From there I go out and up with 3/8" SS tubing until I get to the hydraulic lines.

The pictures of the coolant lines didn't turn out at all. The short of it is that I use the lines that used to heat the throttle body. I run 1/4" hose down to banjo fittings. You can buy banjo fittings from Metric and Multi-Standard Components. I stuck a short piece of tube into the banjo and silver solderded in place. Then you can just slide your hose over it and use a hose clamp.

If someone has a good way to transition from banjo fittings to some other more standard fitting please let me know. I haven't found anything elegant yet.

i found it was better to tee into the heater lines that run to the center of the car. that way my TB coolant lines operate the idle down on the 4age TB like factory. i have brass hose tails from the turbo that the heater hose goes over with some hose clamps, works fine.

found some pics of windsors set-up (i have no good pics of my oil/coolant lines). i have done the same as this, except my remote tee and oil sender is mounted to the side under the engine bay cooling fan. this IMO is the best way to run your oil lines to the turbo.

on the 1st 4agte i did in 2002 i had a tee peice on the block which ended up cracking like most others have found.

I haven't had any issues with throttle freeze up. But, if I do I will have to go back to the factory TB setup. Using the heater lines is a good idea since they are close to the turbo already.

Those coolant hoses are for the auxilary air valve so I would keep them attached.

I have a dsm t25 and don't have a oil return fitting. I was wondering what I should use, or should I make my own? I figure that I should use about 1/2 hose. Where can I get a bung to use on the oil pan? I had the coolant lines t"ed into the the heater lines, but I had some leaking problems. I want to do it right this time, and not have any leaks.

Hey Dan I'm the guy you bought the engine from. If you got any updates I would like to see how she is coming along.

dan, my t25 didnt have a oil return part to it either. so i cut out some flat metal (was about 4-6mm thick) drilled the 2 bolt holes and a 5/8 hole in the center for the drain. i then got some 5/8 pipe (cut it off some old water outlet i had laying around) and got that brazed to my peice of flat metal.
i then got another peice of the 5/8 pipe brazed onto my sump while i had it off, i use 5/8 high temp rubber hose to join the 2.

Paul, i dont have any trouble with TB freezeing down here in Oz. haha
i kept the coolant lines to the TB to save having any problems with idle down once the engine warms up.
