Default So my oil return line...

Is leaking like a mother fucker. I seriously lost 4 qts of oil in my driveway yesterday. The oil was leaking onto my downpipe causing blue smoke to billow from my engine. lol Plus on top of that I have MAJOR MAJOR MAJOR exhaust leaks. This weekend I'll have both fixed. Next weekend I hope to grab a stock ECU from Victory!!

It's comin along lol

Looks like a rubber line. Haven't driven it in a while because of the leaks (oil and exhaust)

No pics yet. I'll be under it this weekend switching out the old lines. I'll try to get some pics.

The Good:
With the help of a friend, I was able to fix the leak. Took about 5 min and 10 qts of oil lol

The Ghetto:
The previous owner had the return line set up as the following...

From the turbo (going to the oil pan) he had what looked like conduit clamped on to the turbo. From the "conduit," he had clamped a rubber hose. After the hose, he clamped a copper 90* elbow. From that elbow, he had clamped yet another rubber hose going to the oil pan.

Laugh it up boys, I didn't believe it when I saw it.

the return line for a wrx turbo is secured w/ just a pinch clamp from the factory. when you do an up pipe swap you have to raise the turbo up, which causes it to pop out of the hose....if you dont get that thing set back down in there just the right way....you know it. haha.

i ended up replacing it w/ a screw clamp. you shouldve seen the way i was contorted underneath the car trying to get the clamp on and tightend

IDAFC, mine is far enough down to where you have to get underneath the car, but far enough up to where you can only reach the line with your middle finger. lol
