the ones on my turbo are much larger. the 3/8 outlet fits inside them but seeing as my turbo is recommended for 6an, this should be perfect for it.
Quote from bmylez on FJ:
"Bad news, man. That brass tee you posted is for PVC pipes, NOT rubber hose. I made that mistake on my first go-round on the SVT and that ish leaked like a sieve. You need tapered barbs, not the PEX fitting you have pictured. Even though it says it's for 3/4", it will not seal correctly against a 3/4 rubber hose. I had everything tightened down, poured in a gallon of coolant, and then had all of it leak out in about 15 min."
