    What is the difference between these two oil feed lines? Which one is better?

    EXTREME PSI : Your #1 Source for In Stock Performance Parts - Oil Feedline Kit (Head Location): Mitsubishi Eclipse 90-99

    EXTREME PSI : Your #1 Source for In Stock Performance Parts - Oil Feedline Banjo Type Kit (Head Location) : Mitsubishi Eclipse 90-99

    Is the head feed line location better for a 16g than the oil filter housing?

    Any help would be appreciated

    I would suggest the one with banjo fittings at both ends. That is how the stock 16G turbos are and has worked for many people.

    The difference would be negligible. One is banjo to direct line and the other banjo to banjo. The turbo housing has a pin hole size internal top oil feed anyway. Personal preference with a stock turbo. Go with the banjo to straight fitting since it's a "must have" if you ever change the turbo.

    Yes, feed the oil from the head. I definitely recommend using the stock feed line. It has an oil restrictor incorporated into it so the turbo gets the correct amount of oil. p/n# MR239830

    Will the stock 1g feed line work fine with a small 16g?

    Absolutely. It's made specifically for the center section of your turbo (14b and 16G variants).
