Is it possible to cut the pipe as close as possible to the turbo, and would there be enough length to reconnect .
Just a thought.

Sure you not talking about the small oil return pipe? That and the ERG is a pain to remove, and even more so to refit.

It is a small metal pipe directly under turbo bolted to middle of turbo on bottom on opposite side to oil feed pipe witch is on top

If your talking about the small pipe with the green mark shown in this picture then than is the oil return pipe

Mine is different as it doesn't have pipe like that
The one I mean is under turbo held on with 2 torx screw and a oval shape gasket

Sorry don't know then. I would follow the pipe and if it goes down towards the base of the engine then it will be the oil return pipe
