turbo oil feed line breaking

I need to know if anyone has had the issue of their turbo oil feed line breaking. This is something i replaced on my 05 evo8 last month and it just broke again. Does anyone konw what could be causing this hard steel line to crack? I am running a bunch of bolt on parts with the stock turbo and some computer mapping done by a place here in AZ. I just wanted to give you a little insight on the car. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

isn't it the hard pre bent line? I neer had a issue on mine, Have you ever swapped your turbo? you may want to look into a SSbraided line so it wont just break. Very weird though since neither part should be moving. got any pics.

I'm with you. It is a pre bend line and even if a motor mount or something was giving way It would still all move at the same time. I was also thinking about just doing a steel braided line. It let loose while my wife was driving... and it just so happened to be right by the place that does our tuning on the car. some luck. I left it there for them to check out tomorrow. I will let you know. Also, it is still the stock turbo.

Thats strange. Ive never heard of that happening on the stock turbo before. Definitely interested in hearing what the reason was.

Well.....looks like possibly a defective oil feed line from mitsubishi. Also, the aftermarket headers that I am running could have it on a bit of a different angle. Props to the guys at Dyno Comp in Scottsdale AZ for getting my car dialed back in again.

You mean the exhaust manifold? What brand are you running, the Megan?

Sorry. Yeah...exhaust manifold. Megan is correct. I am thinking that is the weakest link on the car. I bought this car off my brother and for some reason he had those on there. Spending money on cosworth cams was fine, just not money on the manifold . I guess it's all in your priorities. I will be changing them out with in the next few weeks as they seem to have a small crack. Any helpful ideas on what I should run? Not looking for cheap...looking for quality.

best manifold with reliability would be a ported and coated stocker! Cast mani will hold up, but it also depends on if you want to stay with a stock frame turbo.

well....in the next 4-6 months I will probably be changing to a blouch turbo and ditching the stock. I'm sitting at about 76,000 miles on my stock right now. Looking to get some more hp as well.
