If anything is stripped, it is just at the top, because that fitting would not wind in. What a PITA. Hopefully tomorrow I can get the right one. I'm gonna take the whole turbo in to the shop with me.brealmp3 said:i doubt it, because the fitting will thread most of all the way down in there then you will have teflon tape around it to get a good seal. but now if you stripped out the threads that would be trouble.
This is where I think I got f***ed up. I was using a 1/8" NPT fitting. It was too big. The info on APT Turbo indicates a 7/16-24 w/inverted taper.RyanJayG said:*edit* but what is critical is the 1/8" NPT side of the fitting. it has to have the inverted taper on the inside of the fitting, and the other end is a -4 AN male.
I bought that same fitting from ATP Turbo for my setup. I actually use threadlocker to seal my oil fitting lines. No leaks ever in the 3 years I've used it.RyanJayG said:no, infact my fitting doesn't have the restrictor.

look down into the fitting hole on the turbo and see the cone shape in there? thats how it seals against the fitting. so you dont need thread tape, or pipe dope, which wouldn't survive the temperatures of the turbo.
