Have a leaky turbo oil feed line? Then Detroit Tuned Turbo Oil Line Kit is in stock, and ready to ship! This kit fixes the current stock oil line leak that happens when the line gets too hot too many times. The stock line just has an o-ring seal crimped into place that allows adjustment in both directions, but the problem is the o-ring. After hundreds of heat cycles, the o-ring cooks it self and starts to leak oil onto the turbo. The longer you let it go, the worse it gets. We already know the turbo engines like to use a bit of oil, now if yours has a leak, you're really going thru the oil! Before long your buying a new turbo at the price tage of $1800!! This kit fixes all of that, so you will never have to worry about it again.
To complete the job we paired our line with a new oil return line. Why you ask? Cause after your turbo oil line has leaked all over, the return line can be covered in oil, burning off and breaking down the rubber. It all depends on how long it's been leaking. You're already in there, it's best to replace it and save yourself time and work. The return line is a MINI OEM part, and comes with everything you need to install it. You might want to also buy (and we highly recommend) an Exhaust Clamp, and/or the Exhaust Gasket, or even add this heat shield for more of a stock look (but is not requred with our line). Some pople have asked for the banjo bolts also, but you should be able to reuse the old ones. If you notice oil wetness or drips in the vacinity of your oil cooler, you may want to also look into an oil filter housing seal kit while you have this area exposed. If your looking for everthing, take a look at our super kit!
Trust this high quality kit that is made here in the USA, and is the only kit that has angled fittings to give the most clearence to engine part to reduce heat and wear.
This kit comes with:
Note: Fits all MINI Cooper S cars that currently come with a turbo in the "R" car line, with the N14 or N18 motors, "JCW" or "S". This will also fit the 2007+ Peugeot 207 GTI (thp175).

My 2008 MINI Cooper S began leaking at the turbo oil supply line fitting. It wasn't hard to figure out as there are many write-ups on the forums. So glad that Detroit Tuned has a fix and not just a band-aid for this common problem. My MINI dealer installed the turbo line heat shield last year but the o-ring was probably too far gone at the time. The DT braided line is very well made and installation was a snap. It does take a few hours to get to the line but is doable if you keep patient. Also installed the turbo oil return line and the oil filter housing seals as long as I was in that far. Make sure to also order the downpipe to turbo gasket and downpipe to exhaust clamp or just order the super kit. Yes, you do need to disconnect the battery before starting this job!

no joke fitting my fat hands around the mini cooper s engine compartment, but when all said and done, oil leaks no more, car runs better!

This braided oil line is far superior to the OEM part. Look no farther, this kit has everything you will need to fix that leaking oil line problem. It's a perfect fit!

09 cooper s. Took a little work to get everything off. YouTube video helped. Just search Detroit tunes oil supply line. Easy to install. No leaks. Make sure you clean good with brake cleaner otherwise oil will burn for a while. Way better than OEM.

It was much easer to install than the original part from mini, it also seems to be a much better design.

Great kit, it installs as easily as any replacement could. There is a bit of dis-assembly just to get to it but once there it is easy to route and easy to assemble. The only critique is the compression fitting, it's a bit of a gamble to tighten by "feel" as the instructions state when the part is buried as far as it is. A torque spec would be nice (despite the fact that you would need a crow's foot). Otherwise this kit does the job well.

First, you absolutely must disconnect your battery when installing this! Now that that's out of the way:
This kit is the perfect solution to an idiotic design choice. There are no parts to fail in this design, and it installs really easily, especially if you follow the step-by-step directions for removing all of the parts that are in the way, which can be found online at various forums. This kit did come with instructions for installing the feed line when I bought it, but they were not as thorough as what you can find online, and it didn't include the return line. I chose 4 stars because of this, and the fact that there is no mention that you must tighten the banjo connectors once you get the bolts installed, otherwise the line will leak at the banjo/line junction. I leaked 4 quarts of brand new Royal Purple into the street, and had to do the job twice because I didn't realize that. The parts themselves are top-notch, and work flawlessly. You should buy this kit.
DT: You didn't get a return line with this kit? That is impossible! If anything is ever missing you should call right away. Our directions state to tighten all fitting, Sorry you didn't see that.

Once you get everything exposed... That is... I did this in my garage with hand tools and a couple of jack stands. It took me and a 13 year old about four hours. Mainly just taking it apart, examining things and putting it back together. Much superior part to OEM. This, my Alta intake tube, and my catless downpipe, things are looking up for the Clubman.

This kit was well thought out, and a real improvement over the poorly designed stock setup which was leaking oil on the exhaust. Car doesn't stink anymore, and hopefully will slow the oil burning issue Mini's are known for. The operation took 4.5 hrs and nearly every tool in my sustantial kit, as well as help from my wife, but the instructions helped, along with other internet resources. My only complaint with the supply line is the top bend could've been sharper. **I would recommend purchasing the lower "downpipe to exhaust pipe" gasket - I didn't, and wish I had.**
I'm a fairly competent shade tree mechanic, and would rate this as 2.5 out of 4 wrenches on the difficulty scale, or 3 busted knuckles, or 5 beers, depending on which scale you're using. ;)
