Well, I purchased this and realized it's not a kit for the Starion, but a universal kit.

I got a nice banjo fitting for the oil feed and picked up and adapter for the block for the oil return.

However, I'm a bit curious for the oil feed at the oil filter.

Looks like the original line is m12x1.0, the kit came w/ a line that is m10x1.0.

Does anyone know where I can find an m12x1.0m to m10x1.0 female?  

I read that the m12 fitting converts from 1/4 bspt.  So if anyone knows where I can find 1/4bspt to m12x1.0 that'd works too.

Can't seem to find either type when I'm searching around on the googles.

I found this - https://www.ebay.ie/...A-/201781023214

But I'm not sure I'd trust it

I hope not, I was thinking of buying that and would love for it to be a direct fit. I think hes talking about the turbo oil lines. replacing the hardlines.

No I'm talking the feed.  I bought a banjo for the top of the turbo because of hood clearance issues

This is the one https://www.google.c...teh01O29Hab3UUY

how is the oil feed having clearance issues? The stock line comes up 2-3 inches.

With it on the turbo it pushes up the hood.  Just didn't feel comfortable with it like that.  -4 banjo resolves that issue.  Honestly, that wasn't much a problem.  Finding am adapter for oil return on the block wasn't so hard either.  

But not sure where to get a 12mx1 to 10mx1 fitting or a 1/4bspt to m10x1  fitting.

I just bought that janky looking adapter I posted.  I'll just make sure to put tonnes of thread sealant on it whenever it comes from China

The fitting on the sandwich plate for the turbo feed line is part# MD050533.  That's what your looking for.  I'm pretty sure I couldn't one years ago, but I ordered the same exact thing from McMaster-Carr. I know I ordered a handful of them so I had them.  I'm work right so I can't give the exact thread size, it was probably a 1/4" BSPT to m10X1.  McMaster-Carr is the best website ever - I get all kinds of hard to find fittings from them.

Right it's  1/4bspt to 10x1.0

Couldn't find them :/

The kit really isn't a complete kit at all.

I'll check McMaster Carr, I couldn't find anything on the googles...but then again I ordered that funky thing so I'll give it a go since I already got it.

My other car, I made my own lines, but I didn't feel like purchasing all the parts separately and doing it myself this time... But it's more expense and time to modify this than it was to build my own :/

So I bought the same MK1 braided turbo oil lines. Just now discovering it's not bolt on. Urrrg

Does anyone know which additional fittings I'm gonna need? Google is telling me m12x1 to (??? Size) NPT? Will that work on both the turbo and the oil filter housing?

Does the return line need additional adapters?

Its upsetting to see that 101purpose is doing that. I haven't had any good experiences with them. Hell, they couldn't even tell me which springs were front and which were rear when I purchased their lowering springs. Their response when asked was "I have no idea." Keep in mind, both springs were identical in shape, size and coil wraps. One stamped 048 and the other 049. Pretty sure I put them on backwards too. So I have to do the job twice because they have no knowledge of the product they sell.

Most aftermarket things l bought needed this or that to fit correctly so l just stopped buying it and find a way to build my own. Especially when it comes to lines and such.Its just a big hassle.Buy a kit and have to re do it anyway and buy more on top of that.Not sure how they sell this s...    Custum build it to your spec's and fitment is the only way to go.

So after lots of googling I suspect I will need:

m12x1 to na4 fitting (top of turbo, oil feed)
M12x1.5 to female 1/8th npt fitting (oil filter housing, oil feed)

1/2 pipe thread to na10 (oil return)

So about $30 on top of the 50 I paid for the kit. Definitely regret it.
