Default Leak from turbo oil line. Need help ASAP

For a couple days now I've been getting some white smoke from the passenger side of the engine bay right around the turbo once the car was warmed up. Well today I noticed more smoke than usual and after poking my head around the turbo area, I found the source.

here's a pic:


The leak is pretty significant. If I start the car a thin spray of oil will shoot out of the fitting towards the fenderwell. Its coming from the fitting on top of the banjo bolt that the metal tubing comes out of (circled in red in the pic).

After inspecting it more closely, it kinda looks like the tubing is cocked a little. Will bending it back be a safe way of possible fixing the leak? Is there anyway I can patch the leak if that wont work? I need to get this fixed ASAP since the car is my daily driver Any help will be GREATLY appreciated!

update: well i thought the tubing fitting was one of those ferrule things that gets crush around the tubing to form a seal. after looking at it even closer with a mirror, i realized its welded/brazed and the leak is from a hairline crack in it...

will jb weld be strong enough to seal it? anybody know of anything else thats good for fixing cracks in metal?

well, neither jb weld or silver solder worked for me. looks like the $70 for a SS braided line is the way to go.

i'm posting in this to make sure the next guy who has this issue gets the info
