Oil feed and return line question

I am debating on getting the upgraded oil feed and return lines for my turbo. I am having ARP studs, Black Onyx hg's, new oil cooler, coolant filter and a SCT wednesday. My question is, is it worth doing the oil lines while I have it apart?
Also, should I go ahead and replace the ICP sensor too?

Thanks in advance guys!!

Definately do the oil line upgrade and drain tube upgrade. Don't see a reason for the ICP sensor though.

You can find them both on ebay sometimes as a kit for pretty cheap.

Does your '05 feed line have a short flex section? If not you already have the upgraded feed line....

I didn't even catch that. It should have the bigger drain tube also then.

9T515 is the updated drain tube.

I'm unsure as to the benefit of the updated feed tube. The updated 9T515 has a 3/4" drain section, if I'm not mistaken, but I'd have to measure one of the several dozen that are laying about under my workbench. LOL.

The feed line had a flexing section that would break down inside. Going to a solid prevents the issues with rubber separation. The drain line has smoother bends from what I remember consider it mandrel bends as you would see on a exhaust.
