Question Turbo Oil Supply Line Filter Ques.

Ive been out to the sti twice today trying to squeeze my head behind the turbo to see this banjo bolt hole with the filter. The line that i follow starts on the very top of my turbo right? The top bolt sorta looks like a banjo bolt and then goes to the right of the turbo and down? Also when i find this thing i know i have to torque it back down. The torque wrench i have is for a 1/2 inch drive and is kinda long. Has anyone had success getting one of these in there? Im pretty sure i can find the banjo bolt eventually i just wanted to know if any of you found an easier way to access and or get a torque wrench on this bolt?

any help would be great for subaru wants 200 dollars to complete the TSB for the AVCS filters and im sure theyll want more to take this one out also.

Edit: Also, the torque wrench i bought today is still returnable. I saw a smaller one for inch pounds but it only went to 250 inch pounds which equals like less than 21 foot pounds right? I think im kind of stuck with my torque wrench but if you use a extension or something like that wont it mess up the torque measurements your putting down?

Think there's a write up on here somewhere, try the motor oil thread. I did a write up on an lgt forum, can't remember the site though.

Some pics: banjo with filter removed

brace that needs to be removed for better access

pass side banjo below turbo

swivel wrench from autoshack that made the job way easier

banjo on the avcs driver's side, pita to get to


Although I did reuse one old crush washer it is better to get new ones, they are a one time use item. Sorry I can't help you more, it's been a year or so since doing the job and I just can't remember.

Thanks for the info, does the turbo oil supply line require a crush washer as well?

Im a little confused by your pictures, the first one shows the oil feed line going left and then a bracket? Under that bracket is the AVCS Passenger side? or is that the turbo oil filter? I found the driver side AVCS no problem.

Yes, both ends. None of the local parts stores had the correct size crush washer. You do not want an oil leak, this could ruin the turbo or cause a fire.

Yes, oil line runs from the avcs to the turbo. Again, I'm going on memory, the filter is in the banjo bolt on the avcs outlet. Don't remember having a filter in the turbo banjo bolt. In the third pic, w/bracket removed, you can see the banjo bolt w/the filter inside.
