Turbo Oil Line.

So im about to swap out my Turbo on my WRX as i think it has pretty much died. and while i was at it i was thinking of changing my oil line to it as i think i have an oil leak at the turbo somewhere. there is a bit of oil around th eturbo its self and jsut wondering on what is a good Oil Line to get for the stock TD04.

Blouch would be your best bet to find one for a td04. If its out there they probably make it or can make it. If not then you could have a hose shop custom make you one.

Would you advise a breaded steel hose? and i will look out for one from them.

Im sorry, I somehow was under the impression that's what you were wanting. Oem with new washers will be just fine as a replacement. I would not trust any ebay crap though.

Other than being pretty for applications like oil stainless steel lines dont provide a huge advantage. the idea of braided steel is that the inner butyl rubber hoze does not expand and contract with changes in pressure so in theory your oil pressure would remain constant under load assuming your oil pump can keep up. For a mostly stock setup the only benifit to braided steel is that it looks good, and for the extra 30-40 dollars why not?
