Sorry for the bad description. I replaced the single banjo bolt that feeds the turbo with a double banjo bolt and used an M14 banjo to an04 flare adapter to attach the flex line. I think I bought on fleabay as I could not find M14*1.5 thread double banjo bolt anywhere else. Mounted the turbo feed line against the block followed by the an04 flare to the braided line.

Ah, I see. Photo is a little small and doesn't want to zoom for me, so one more quesiton: Those are threads on the AN04 fitting, right? And you just hooked up the braided line to there with the new sensor in the end of it?

Yeah, the blue fitting adapts from 14M banjo to threaded flare connector - I think mine was AN04 flare but it may have been AN06. The size you need will depend on the braided hose you are using. My hose came with a couple of adapters to fit different size flare and other fittings.

The double banjo slides through: outer crush washer, flare adapter, middle crush washer, OEM turbo feed line, inner washer and then threads into the housing/block. I've also used banjo bolts that have a female threaded hole through the banjo bot's head - but given the tight space in the area the double banjo allows you to easily change the angle of the exiting hoses. Now that I think about spacing, I am not sure if I had the flare adapter on the inner or outer section of the bankjo bolt - but you'll figure out what works best.

Anyways, I really like the banjo solution over the pancake adapter. Maybe I was too cheap to buy the best quality pancake adapter, but the ones I used both resulted in the entie filer housing area being permanently damp, oily, and grimey whereas the banjo adapters are tight and dry.
