Oil return line leak!

785 Views 5 Replies 2 Participants Last post by  indy2000
Alright Corral, I’ve got a leak originating from the top of the oil return line. This is where it drains from the turbo. Looks like it’s 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, it’s VERY close to the header crossover pipe. Any suggestions would be appreciated!

redo the connection

or go to stainless tubing, leave the braided junk alone
your turbo is flexing with respect to the drain pan?
requires a little effort to bend lines
