[s-cars] installing a hybrid turbo

I cut my water in (to turbo) line about at cylinder #2 or 3.
I used a nice piece of transmission cooler line that is rated well over the
pressure it will ever see and will take some temperature.
The hose was imperial over a metric tube, so it was already tight. I also
used a tubing tool to form a small outward vee into it. This in an attempt
to make sure it never comes off. So far so good.
