Question What size return/feed lines for my turbo?

Hi, I'm going turbo and im wondering what size return and feed lines/fittings would be good. Its a 64mm garrett. Right now the turbo has a crazy small feed line and a crazy large return line ( dash 12 i believe). I'm getting a fitting welded into my pan tomorrow so just trying to find out what sizes would be best.

thanks

as big as you can get for a return line !!

I think my supply line is either -3 or -4. I would see which (-3 or -4) is close to the current one and run that.

-3 supply, -10 drain.. -12 won't hurt though, can't go too big for the drain.
