    I'm having an issue finding the proper fitting that I want for my turbo oil feed line. I've read that the OFH thread is 3/8 BSPT and the fitting on the oil line is 1/4 NPT. Either I'm not finding the one I want, or I'm too dumb to realize I found it but don't know it. I want a straight fitting, not a 90* fitting like what ExtremePSi has in their kits. Even a 458 might be fine too. Anyone know where I can find one?\

    I've been on this page, but don't exactly know what they have because to me it's not obvious...

    I believe that they mean -4AN. That kit is like universal (Like the STM one in the link below). comes with a 3/8 BSPT to -4AN fitting, -4AN line and the turbo side fitting and washer (If your turbo is a 16g then a M12x1.25 Male to -4AN Male fitting and M12 crush washer)
    What exactly are you looking for? Would you like to order all fittings and a line separately to make your own? If so, just like I said above, basically a 3/8 BSPT to -4AN fitting, -4AN line and the turbo side fitting and washer are all you need to buy. (Or maybe you would want -3AN depending on your turbo or/and an inline filter if necessary)

    No, your info is what I needed. The fitting in your first post should work out just fine, I have an FP68HTA, so 16G style. The kit I provided the link for has a 90* fitting for the OFH side, and I hate that fitting, so I just wanted a straight one that wouldn't be a pain to work with. I should have looked on STMs site, didn't even think about it this time. Thanks for the help.

    I see. Agree that a 90 degree fitting is sometimes annoying in a tight spot. Maybe before ordering, you should contact Extreme PSI to ask them if possible to replace the 90 degree fitting with a straight one.

    Not a bad idea at all. I've always had great service from them, this shouldn't be any different.
