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.

kidmogster is correct, its a solid drain tube, yours will have the flexible braided stainless lines.

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?
