Does someone know what the upgraded turbo supply tube look like?

I bought what I though was the updated turbo oil supply tube.
It's a solid tube.

The one I took out has a flex section in it. I bought the truck new in 2006, so I know this has not been replaced (unless the dealer did this without telling me; I did take the truck in a couple of times, but never for anything related to the turbo).

Just wanted make sure I put back the best one. There might be pro's and con's to using each. I would think the flex section might have an advantage in the sense that it would put less pressure on the connection to the turbo....maybe even withstand a little more vibration. But, I really don't know whether the flexible or solid one is the best.

Can someone give me some help? Which one works the best?

Don't panic,you did good because the flex could cause a restriction and reduce oil supply to the turbo.

the solid is the updated one.
