Turbo Oil Return Line differences?
Posted by: edconnolly ()

Is the tube swaged in the head for oil return from the turbo different for Spyder and Corsa motors? I have a tube that has a ridge near the top of the stamping and noticed a tube in a turbo head that does not have that ridge.

Thank you, Ken. Yes, that is the one I have (removed from head).

Either tube works but I have seen the ridge on the early turbo heads only. I just made one from copper tubing! It is only a press fit not really "swedged" in.

Ken,

How far vertically from the top surface of the rocker box on the head is the top of the return tube in your photo? The tube that does not have the ridge measures 3.25 inches from the top to the surface on the head.
