    turbo lines failing at 70K

    so my gravity feed oil return line off the bottom of my stock turbo blew off today. and the coolant hose on the left side split about two inches. so i have a little project ahead of me.

    any ideas why this may have happened??

    and i was thinkin, if any of you know anyone who might have a vf 34 or 39 for sale, let me know, i may as well upgrade while i have the turbo off to replace a few fluid lines

    You don't have to remove the turbo to install a new gravity line.

    It's a PITA.... but it can be done.

    Grease the inside of the line, slide it DOWN over the metal drain tube, get it straight, then slide in up over the turbo drain line.

    There's a few inches of space between the two.... so it can be done.
