    this is why

    it will be hard to put ur stock brass line onto the 20G
    it was a PITA when i did an 18G swap for someone, had he had that line it would have been easier, i think i have seen them go for like $50-$80 online.
    just search
    is it the oil return line, because when i bought the 20g it can with the following:

    INCLUDES:
    Black Xtreme(TM) coating-turbine housing
    Grey Ceramic coating-compressor housing
    Monster Port(TM)
    Metal coolant supply lines
    Coolant line banjo bolts
    Coolant line banjo seals
    Oil return line with new gasket and bolts
    Stainless steel downpipe studs

    pretty sure ur'z didn't come with it, it's the hard brass line on very top of the turbo, right in the middle...you have to bend it back to remove the turbo then bend it back to fit the 20G, which is diffucult.
    here's the line:

    here's the stock line location

    the OIL return line is the one Jason & I had a problem with during his swap out. Oil FEED line is on top of the turbo and RETRUN line is at the bottom.

    I hope to get my 20g rebuilt & have wastegate welded shut in the next few months....we'll see how my 06 block holds up against your STi block

    do you know if it will fit on a deadbolt 20g using a fp line?

    As long as it's not a rotated-turbo setup, it will fit. These are considered "bolt-on" turbos, so you should be just fine.

    the 18G i swapped for someone was also considered bolt on, it took us 45mins to line up the oil feed line, get banjo bolt started....so an aftermarket line will make the install go easier..

    That's gonna be huge lag if you're driving a 2.0.
