Ok so what's the normal thing to do with coolant lines you won't use anymore after moving to a bigger oil cooled turbo?

And second what's the cheapest safe option for the oil lines? (Not the ebay kit, can assemble my own if I know the sizes and lengths needed)

It's a t3/t4 journal bearing turbo, I know it's too big but it was cheap and I'll upgrade later. What do you guys think of using an oil restrictor even though it a journal bearing turbo?

treadstone is real cheap for their premade lines.

I think OP wants to know what to do with the coolant lines for a turbo that doesn't use coolant.

Not sure about 058 block, but I'm 99% sure the threads on an 06a block are 14x1.5 for the coolant port there. Im guessing they are the same on 058. For the coolant crossover pipe, either cap it off with a rubber hose over the nipple and a bolt in the other end of the hose, or just cut the nipple off of the pipe and weld the hole shut
