Angry Oil return line leak!

Alright Corral, Iíve got a leak originating from the top of the oil return line. This is where it drains from the turbo. Looks like itís going through the actual stainless steel braid close to where it meets the red anodized fitting after the oil warms up.

Anyone have similar issues? Any recommendations for a new HIGH-TEMP return line?

Also, itís VERY close to the header crossover pipe. Any suggestions would be appreciated!

So, I have seen some people running stainless tubing. Curious as to its durability and strength compared with the stainless braided lines. Wouldnít you want some flex/give, and not a solid line?

your turbo is flexing with respect to the drain pan?

I doubt my turbo is flexing with respect to the oil pan. Iím just wondering why you see so many people going with stainless braided ďjunkĒ if tubing is the way to go?

requires a little effort to bend lines
