Every one I've seen in the junkyards are the same, no matter IHI or T3. In fact the return line on my T3 came of an IHI from the junk yard.

I've got both RETURN LINES (not small ss feed lines) in front of me and there is no way an IHI line fits a T3, the flange is WAY smaller. I'll try to take a pic of them sometime.

don't know what to tell ya. I pulled a return line off an 87 T-Coupe with an IHI and put it on my stock T3 in my SVO. Maybe the car I pulled it off of had been modified sometime in it's life? Or I was wrong and just thought it came off an IHI (I did this right after I got my car and didn't know alot about non-truck turbos back then).

Guys to settle the matter I would say there may have been a running changeover in production since there are discrepancies between what we all have. Eric, if your's won't match just get on from an 86 with a T3.
