Hey guys I need a quick hand here,

trying to locate where my oil leak is coming from, narrowed it down to a certain hose under my turbo, I found a picture of what I assume is the same line and wondering if someone could let me know what it is so I can dive deeper into the problem.

Cheers! Also first post here, glad to be here

HA! That looks like my old Forester project!

That rubber hose is the oil drain line from the turbo.

They do get stiff from age, so it might be leaking - esp. if the turbo was replaced / upgraded and not properly installed.

Edit: FWIW, that's NOT a stock oil drain. It's one I fabbed up as this was originally a NON-turbo head that I had a shop add the oil and coolant return lines.
