instead of using another one from the old turbo which I'm worry it will happen like this again, have anyone try one of these?

Hi Pascal
Yes i replaced the original oil feed line with the Mamba one and it worked perfectly but instead of the oil line by the pump I relocated the line next to the oil pressure switch, the reason is at least the oil is filtered before going to the turbo. I know that the engineer designed like that for a reason but I don't drive hard so it's still working perfectly for me :D
Cheers.

thanks for the reply, I'll try source some banjo and hose locally first, if nothing then I'll get the MANBA kit

Mine snapped just like yours and I simply clamped on high heat/pressure rubber hose and its help up fine even on a modified engine/larger turbo

Stainless lines look nice but really not necessary
