So my FrankenTurbo kit is on the way and I was planning on replacing the oil feed line just for peace of mind but it's $140 from ECS. I don't know if its just me but that seems a little steep just for an oil line. Does anyone of any more affordable alternatives? I found this from PSI Concepts http://www.psiconcepts.com/store/index.php?l=product_detail&p=178 Will this work?

That should work great. You could also try e-mailing Arnold at PagParts. Maybe he can hook you up with a better price.

Just buy the 40" line from ebay. M12 x 1.5mm to 4an adapter and m12 x 1.25mm to 4an adapter. They are the good quality and work just fine. Be prepared with an intake manifold gasket since you have to take it off to install the oil line. I did mine without removing it but its a bitch. It will also allow you to inspect the breather hose as well.

I am using these exact parts on my car and have used these parts on others as well and have had no issues EVER. The only other thing to pay attention to is if you need a restrictor on the M12 x 1.25mm to 4AN fitting. I don't know about it.

i just cleaned my original one, not hard, and works fine (the trick is using the correct cleaner :)

Any hot rod shop, ~$10.

At worst you may have to get a fitting for the oil cooler while there, $4.
