RE: Price on 88 Turbo Oil LInes

Expensive, very expensive. Only buy the used oil cooler if the core is
damaged. If your only problem is that lines are seized over the
fittings, the new fittings can be machined and welded in place of the
old ones. Don't buy used lines if you haven't seen them, especially for
this price. They corrode easily, even if not subjected to salt. Consider
buying new aftermarket ones or fitting new hoses to your existing
fittings instead.
