I would need to know what size of o-ring on tube and nipples are. I meant 89-91 Turbo only.

If I can't find turbo then I am going to mod tube from my gti engine that I am not using.

Thank in an advance.

Okay.. There is not available coolant tube for T3 so I went the junkyard to pick the coolant tube and fuel nipple (8mm) from any geo metro.

At the shop, I cut off bango of the fuel nipple then grind/ clean both pipe and tube then drill 1/4" bit into the tube (about 135 degree from 12mm nipple of the tube and about 20mm far than bigger nipple) then finally weld it. Always make sure the job is good... so test it with air pressure with soap water or any foam (non-flammable) product.

Oh yeah don't forget to take a long pipe of TBI body from metro because T3 pipe is short. It might not be a great but it should be fine.
