Turbo drain tube question

Which drain tube is suppose to be the better one? The 03-04 tube or the 05-07 tube? One of them is suppose to allow the oil to drain back out of the turbo better and faster. It was in an issue of Diesel Power but I can't find it. I'm replacing my turbo and I want to have the correct tube on hand when I reinstall the turbo. Thanks.

I just recently changed my drain tube out, mine was an 04 and it was a solid drain tube, not steel braided. now the supply line to the turbo is braided. it should be soild, but like said above the 05+ is bigger in diameter.

The braided line is the feed tube, the updated feed tube is solid, no fled, and the updated drain tube is larger. Can I get part numbers for both, or is there a kit part number with both and gaskets/o-rings?
