Have a leaky turbo? Then the Detroit Tuned Turbo Oil Line Kit is 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 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. Since this is just the line, you might want to buy a Turbo Oil Line Kit, or a Exhaust Clamp, or a Exhaust Gasket. To make this job fail proof, we highly recommend our Super Kit as it comes with everything you could need.
Trust in this high quality kit that is Made in the USA, and is the only kit that has angled fittings to give the most clearance 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) as well as possible other European models.

I will echo what many have said - this oil line is SO superior to the stock piece that it isn't in the same universe.
And buying the exhaust gaskets and clamp is required. Don't try to scrimp and re-use the old ones.
This takes 3-4 hours of oily, cramped work to replace. Install this line and it will be the last time you have to do it. Superior product!
Now if they only made a coolant tube...

I love the design of this line. Clearly engineered by someone with practical experience. The job itself was bit tedious because of the tight working conditions, but hey it is called a "MINI" for a reason! The only thing I think should be different is that in the description where it states "you might want to buy......" it should state "you should at least purchase the exhaust clamp and gasket". Because if your car is like mine, that clamp bolt isn't coming apart in one piece. I could have used a nut and bolt but I like having the right stuff. Also, I would recommend doing the Helix short shifter at the same time if you have a Manual transmission!

For one of the hardest repairs on a Mini for all you have to do to get to the line. The instructions and the parts were excellent. Not to mention phone support .
I won't buy parts from anyone else. They even had a thermostat in stock and MAG Mini said it would be 10 days.

One of the best upgrades you can do on your R56!

Very happy with the quality, price, shipping, and the online instructions providing torque specs and general information for the swap. It's perfectly designed for the engine and completely fixes the leaky factory line. From the looks of it I'll never have to worry about a smoking hood again!

Stock oil line is designed to fail; detroit tuned aftermarket oil line is far better and not prone to fail.

Bought this to replace the oil line on my '09 Clubman S. Not only did it ship quickly and arrive a day earlier than expected, but it fit perfectly - very straightforward and simple installation. Once installed it performed beautifully. Replacing the badly designed OEM unit with this is a no-brainer.

Found this to be an excellent alternative to the OEM part. It wont fail due to heat melting an inferior rubber sealed Banjo bolt joint ,excellent quality and fit .It would be good to enclose a note stating it is a directional part .It will fit either way ask me how I know ,after checking the internet I realized the 90 end was meant for the bottom so I had to switch it around.. How about a T shirt ??

Quality product, superior to the factory piece, easy install.

Installed DT's braided turbo oil feed line today. Took about 3 hours of semi-tedious time.
Line features compression connections at the banjo, rather than a crimped rubber washer, which should eliminate further leaks.
Only thing I would do differently next time is tighten the compressions on the BENCH after a fitment as the lower one when tightened tends to force the line away from the block and getting anything in that tight space to prevent that is obnoxious! Left hand threads on that would be better, or if DT would jig-fit and tighten before shipment - that would be cool too. Overall a great upgrade!
