Is this the oil feed for the turbo right?

Is it solid pipe?Can you get a braided line instead?

solid pipe factory made & fit, the new pipe will arrive tomorrow.

It saves having to find a braided one then ordering etc...

update:

just had call from dealer. intercooler off, inlet manifold off, inlet pipe off, turbo coming off.

Oil pipe runs under inlet dusct & manifold and is one piece so cannot bedn or will split.

May be finished tomorrow, but more likely Wed.

The service manager is working on it as we speak & he is a very very good mechanic so I know it will be done right.

Just wont look forward to the bill.
