    The life of... SharkyUK's Trophy

    This right here. This is the lie you keep telling yourself. You decided on making it a 'tad' quicker with ITB's and then that didn't go exactly to plan and you let garage A convince you to up the ante on the build. That didn't get finished and you let garage B convince you to up the ante on the...

    threaded M12 is definitely turbo oil return. AN8 is too small for that. AN8 likely a sensor - or catch can return if its set up to do that (not a good idea IMO)
