    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.

    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).
