Have a leaky turbo? The Detroit Tuned Turbo Oil Line Kit in stock 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 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 as a leak out oil onto the turbo. The longer you let it go the worse it gets. We already know the turbo motors like to use a bit of oil, now if yours has a leak, your really going thru the oil! This kit fixes all of that, so you will never have to worry about it again. You might want to buy a whole line kit, or a Exhaust Clamp, or a Exhaust Gasket.

If you want a better idea, look to Detroit Tuned. The Mini Turbo oil line is a better idea and what mini should have done in the first place. I hope they start consulting with Detroit before they design anything else.
I don't have to worry any more about oil exploding under the hood. The oil line is a good fit with no rubber seals to fail under the heat of the turbo.

I removed the banjo bolt on the oil feed line to my turbo to inspect it's condition after seeing one that came out of a car with a toasted turbo. My banjo bolt was clean as a whistle as I do frequent (5K) oil changes. My car has 52K miles and the o-ring in the original line started leaking after re-installing the banjo bolt. I chose the Detroit tuned kit so I won't be in the same situation in another 50K miles. The line fit great, high quality product, no problems with the install. I only wish I had smaller hands, some of the heat shield fasteners are in tight places.... I highly recommend this product.
