Default Water Lines for Blouch Dominator 2.5XT-R

Hi, Guys. I'm going nuts trying to figure this out. I CANNOT FIND THESE DAMN WATER LINES ANYWHERE! I emailed Blouch but no response. Can I convert the hard water pipes for this turbo into some kind of -AN fittings/lines instead? I have no expertise in this at all but if anyone could just guide me in what size adapters I may need instead of using the banjo bolts, that would be great. Or if I can still use the banjo bolts and have some other kind of adapter, but I don't know the size of the banjo bolts. I know the original STI turbo water banjo bolts are like 12mm x 1.25 but I think the one on the 2.5XT-R looks bigger. Unfortunately, I don't have the original turbo to compare.

Has anyone done this or has anyone had a hard time replacing these water lines like me? (I bought this turbo used and it didn't come with them). How did you solve this?

Thank you!

So your looking for Coolant pipes with banjo bolts and copper washers?

They sell a kit on their site

Im sure its the same size for ball bearing.

Thanks man but that kit seems to be for smaller turbos. The 2.5XT-R doesn't have the hard line that wraps underneath. The ones that wrap underneath is because the inlet and outlet are on the same side, but mine are on opposite sides. Water goes in on the side that faces the engine and comes out on the side that faces the passenger fender. Thank you for your contribution though!

I didn't see these kits before. They might just work! I'm going to try to confirm the size of the banjo bolt for the 2.5XT-R. If it's the same size as the STI, then these will definitely work.
