Hey guys so I'm replacing the Garrett turbo in my 99 9-3 with a td04-15t and I'm using the oil return line that came with the turbo. I stretched the tube over the nipple on the oil pan and it seems like the tube is a little too long, it's bowing in from the length + bend... Do you think that's going to flow well enough or should I try to cut it a bit shorter to eliminate that crease?

Its fine. Your feed has a restrictor on it anyways, you are not dumping oil into the thing.

You can always get the proper oil pan fitting so you're not stretching the hose like that. You might also consider different clamps. It's a silicone hose, and those standard hose clamps will cut into it.
