    It's the "T" and provides coolant to your turbo. Any parts store or even home depot will have this.

    That "T" fitting is not OEM, there should be a single hose going to that hard pipe which is the coolant return line from the oil filter housing (OFH).

    ...and if you look closely at the diagram above, the coolant line coming off the back of the turbo should connect like this to the side of the water pipe.

    You can find any at autozone by the hose clamp section they will have tee's there all different sizes it's easy to over look them or a junk yard or even the dealership possibly with the Vin #. Goodluck:D Jen c.

    Just get a T from any parts store or home improvement. It's not a special valve or anything.

    line sends coolant to/from turbo to help cool it, remove the T, loop the coolant lines. install turbo timer to let hot oil drainback out of turbo. while car is at idle (due to turbo timer) turbo cools "naturally" with no coolant....stock turbos dont necessarily NEED the coolant they dont get that hot
