Fucccccc On my way home an sti pulled up to my rear and started tailgating me so I dropped to 3rd gear and let my car rip at 18psi I had no problem leaving him in my emission free dust....lol Then I let off the gas and slowed back down to have my car get swallowed in smoke. I started to panic and pulled over to find my oil feed for the turbo line melted a small pin hole. Ill be replacing the hose tomorrow, hopefully my turbo didnt lose pressure while i was boosting.

Because I have a steel braided return. And an inner steel braided pressure line rated at 5000psi.

Plus I dug deeper its not from the turbos oil lines. Its from my dip stick

no that is clearly a dip stick tube. And it is the 3sge tube, its one of those things you don't think about when using a different block. but i have the 3sgte tube in now. the part that is broken is the plastic on the stick that goes inside the tube to seal the oil in.

do you have any photos of your intercooler piping routing. I'm doing a side feed and thinking about how I want to clock the turbo and run the piping.
