    Turbo Water Feeds

    Well, replaced the turbo water feeds with braided hoses at the weekend. With the turbo still on.... Its quite fiddly, but possible (so long as the heat shields are off).

    This was the leaky bugger...

    They're renowned for it over here....so quite possibly. I have a fair idea what caused mine. It was probably when I had to drive over a baby deer a few months ago (already road kill) and it impacted on the exhaust. That would have pulled on the downpipe and turbo. The movement would have been enough to crack the join on the pipe.

    Not the oil feed though. That's impossible to do without taking the turbo off...

    Lucky escape for you... I hit an 8 pointer with my Z the first year I had it... it was very messy indeed....

    Of course my next question is whether you went back and had venison for supper!

    Tempting though it may have been, the reason I hit it was because I was in the inside lane of a dual carriageway and couldn't move over to avoid it because of the traffic on the outside. Scraping it off the road wouldn't have been fun...
