Default '98 s70 t5 with b5244t3 turbo line help

I had someone swap a b5244t3 in my '98 s70 t5 a few years ago and the turbo lines were a complete hack job. It look like a combination of stock hard pipe, and rubber hose(that I am sick and tired of replacing every couple of months). I am looking to replace these with stainless steel lines if possible.

Can anyone point me in the right direction? Thanks

The water lines kind of look stock - although not factory hoses. The oil return pipe is a total hack - I'll agree. Should be a metal line with a special o ring at the block. I would just replace hoses and gaskets and oil line with factory pieces and be done with it.

^Thanks for the pdf's!
I'll see if I can source a stock oil return line, but I don't want to keep rubber hoses near the turbo. Bad design by volvo.

I thought this s60 engine used a full hard pipe on the upper coolant line?

mmm - not sure about this being a bad design - I've never had to replace mine on my 1998 in almost 160k miles

I think my coolant return may have been cut, the "replacement" hose on there looks longer than the stock ones. I guess I'll pull it off, check for cuts in the line, and measure the gap.
