    Hey everyone

    Just looking for some input on what size lines to use on my gt2871r setup, which I am installing on a 1.8T AMK.

    Would 1/2" (12mm) braided telfon pipe be sufficient for a oil intlet and would I need a oil restrictor (seems like it has a internal one)?
    Would a 5/8" (16mm) braided teflon pipe be sufficient for a oil return?
    What size should one use on the water lines and do I need to clock the centre core in any specific way for the water lines (example does the return need to be higher than inlet or visa versa?)

    This is my first BB turbo and dont wanna mess it up :)
