Haven’t posted in a while as the GT-R is down with this passenger side turbo oil leak (2013 BE)

At the dealer to diagnose but it looks like a slow leak at the oil feed. Almost 8 years of driving and track days but even with stock power this broke.

I had the passenger side feed line (not the return line as in that pic) develop a small crack which leaked a lot of oil on track and I changed it without taking the engine out. Giant PITA and long hard job due to very tight clearances. The new feed line from Nissan was an improved part with a better design to resist cracking at the fail point on mine, proving they knew the 2009 part was defective. Good on Nissan for at least upgrading the part.

Hard to see in the pic but oil is coating the entire center of turbo and dripping down the pictured return line. Dealer says it’s the turbo seal but I would bet it is the feed line (or both)

FYI they can’t diagnose fully without pulling the engine. And the book says pull the engine to replace the feed line anyway. Exploring other options.
