Greddy T518Z install help!

Hi everyone!

I have a Greddy T518Z...basically a TD05-18g 8cm2 hotside. My problem is that the turbo is oil cooled only, thus forcing me to route my coolant line directly to the coolant return line that connects to the passenger side cylinder.

What size hose will I need? Is there a way to connect two hoses without it leaking? What's the best route to take for this procedure? Your help is very appreciated...I will be installing on Saturday!

well it's almost sunday but I dont think that turbo has the same mounting flange is the uppipes on our cars does it? Me personally, I would sell that turbo and get one that is actually meant for our cars to include the same mounting flange and same lines.

Baller it is a factory turbo:GReddy "T518Z" Turbo Upgrade Kit WRX - Modern Automotive Performance. It just doesnt use coolant to cool down, ONLY oil. I have seen the next size up from this turbo on an STI, but I dont recall how they had the lines running, sorry OP.

Its no problem, you just dont see many people on here using Greddy or other brands other than FP or blouch for the most part.
