Hi, I’m building a turbo kit for my ford XE Crossflow. And just wondering what oil lines to I tap to cool the turbo? Because I heard that the transmission oil lines is a good way to cool the turbo because the oil gets cooled though the radiator and is easy to tap? What are my other options to cooling a turbo can could same one give me a step by step guide to doing this for a Ford XE? Any help would be great. Thanks

A T fitting off your pressure switch then use -3 braided line and fittings...
If youre doing budget ...
Use some brake line with flared ends and screw into fittins....

the pressure switch is located passenger side of the engine block, towards the back, will be a single plastic looking plug i think if its basic or a metal plug about an inch long an inch round if its got a pressure gauge form memory.

u can t peice that off and run that which most people use, or u can get a sandwhich plate to go betwee your block and oil filter and run lines from that,

Thanks for that.
And one more question, what is the inside diameter of the T piece and the inside diameter of the inlet turbo oil lines?
