Default 18g oil line question. small emergency.

how do you route the oil line going into the top of the turbo? under the bracket, over the bracket, through the bracket? i'm worried that if i bend it too many more times that it may just kink.

You should not have to move the oil feed line that far at all, just enough to remove/reinstall the turbo. Do not try and bend it more than 10 to 15* at any point or it will kink.

the fp18g has a big bracket holding the actuator on and it sorta makes it so that you have to decide whether you have to go under it , over it or maybe even through it.

I'm sure you figured it out by now but just incase...I routed mine under and then back around to the top. The 1st time I rested the line on the uppipe and it burned a hole in the inner liner and got a leak while I was on the track. So, had to order another line and then routed it the same but tied it off to the tranny dip stick tube so it wouldn't hit the uppipe. All is good now...$70 bucks for a new line kinda sucked though...
