Hoping to have my Hybrid turbo fitted before the summer, and I've decided to do it the right way with a new downpipe etc.

Now this leaves me with the question of the oil and water lines for it, I don't think there is an off the shelf kit for fitting the TD04 to the 93 B204 engine, just B205 ones which as far as i'm aware has one water line totally different. I'm not willing to use oversize copper washers or use the cut and shut method with the lines. So this leads me on to using braided lines, the only issue being I'm not sure what size to use. I was going to go with 6AN for the water and 4AN for the oil feed...also from what I can gather I will get away with using the stainless braided PTFE hose and compression fittings.

Any advice from anyone that has done similar would be a huge help.

Only input I can give is I made PAS braided line and binned the metal one. They are really straight forward you shouldnt have any problem making your turbo lines.

Also had a the TD04 on with oversized washers for over 30k with no problems or leaks. I wouldnt say its the wrong way as it either leaks or it doesnt.

I think I use teflon or nylon for the inner.

That interests me also...I noticed my power steering pipe is starting to flake so I did ponder making up a new one instead of fitting an original to rust again. what fittings did you need and what pipe did you use if you don't mind me asking?

It might be worth just sticking with oversize washers then?

There is a thread on here where some guy replaces all the lines but uses hardpipe then AN ends.

Also im not sure if the pipe runs across the lower crossmember for cooling as my braided one runs across top slam panel past grille above exhaust.

Pump fitting
https://m.summitracing.com/parts/EAR-991955ERL

Rack
https://m.summitracing.com/parts/EAR-9894DBJERL

I think it came to £50 from america.

Ill edit with a photo.

It is very tight fit on the pump. I loosened off the bolts and tapped the pump down a little bit and got the AN fitting on with the braid then tapped the ac pump back up into place and tightened up. It is touching the head but it moves with the engine and hasnt caused me any problems for around 1000 miles.
