That's the thing! I couldn't think of what it was called again lol.

That's what I got, UnNamed, for mine. Got it off of eBay, wasn't expensive at all but you will need it. Had to get mine off of a marine parts seller on eBay, not a regular car parts seller

Got mine from pirtek $8 just take your bung in and get them to match the thread size and pitch. Make sure your oil return is a decent size hose diameter as its only gravity return. If its too small u can pressurise the turbo core and blow oil seals

also it seems that my wastgate intake port does not seal i read that it can be normal for a little bit of air to come out. but with mine it hisses out doesnt seem like it could hold any air at all i unscrewed the fitting and looked inside it looks like the thread goes right in and hits the diaphram. would it be a stupid idea to cut acouple of mm off the thread?
