Is there a local store in Dallas or surrounding areas that sell the connectors and adapters for the oil lines?

You're just now getting around to picking out your fittings? Ugh, you noob!

Best place to go is Jegs...you'll have to wait on shipping but they have good products.

The fitting for the head for oil is a 1/8NPT 90 to -3 or -4 what ever your oil line is

The turbo can be a 1/8 npt to -3/-4 or a 1/8 npt 90 to -3/-4 depending on how you want to rought your line

This should be a very common fitting local

Hello Tom,

Those are the fittings I got, but for some reason my oil line will not connect up. It looks like my oil line is 1/8 NTP or -3AN, but basically both ends of the adapter needs to be the same to connect to the oil line I received :)

I haven't been able to find -AN fittings in stores around town...always have to get them from Jegs. Maybe Tom knows something I don't...

Springbuck.. That is amazing what you have done! i just got a 02 ZX3 for my 18th birthday ha! and you say you live in Texas...do you happen to live anywhere Houston? and also if you could send me a msg of the entire list of components used for your SVT. I am thinking about converting my ZX3 into a SVT or just buying an entire SVT car. Please give me some feedback thanks.

I have gotten Tom's kit and all the other extra's, but they are listed on page 1. Other than that it is just odds and ends. Bolts, nuts, fittings, vacuum piping. I am taking my sweet time. It is very hot so I just work in short spurts when the urge hits me and it is not too hot, but I hope to finish soon. What made it difficult was that I had to take off the JRSC and restore the intake and other stuff so it wasted a lot of time :). No I live in the Dallas area.

Its coming along nicely. I still wish I had just boosted my focus instead of buying another car. But one day I shall return to the fofo. :)
