Default Stock Feedlines are crap!

I found a hole/crack developed in my turbo's oil feedline! Luckily it got worse while I was running it in the garage and not on the street!

Anyone else have this issue? Reminds me of the oil pickup tubes cracking.

You're driving a 10 year old car. Stuff wears out. I don't see much outrage in this occurring. Fix it and move on. I'm glad you caught it early.

If you've removed your turbo it can get stressed and crack where it gets bent from removing it. Not that uncommon.

I'm going to chalk it up to that.
I'd be willing to bet your car has had the turbo swapped before.

Hard lines that short and as well supported don't just crack.

I agree, the, line has probably been fatigued from several turbo R&Rs. Get a new hardline, make sure it has all its p-clamps, and don't bend it.

Could pick up a braided aftermarket line for ease of installation and reliability. Cracked my line and went with the P&L braided line, no issues yet.
