I assume some incompetent moron raised the car on a hoist or lift under it and caused this. The two questions I have though are is there any reason this would have been done on purpose, as the way it is flattened so perfectly it almost looks like it was peened like that by someone. Secondly as I'm assuming this is not the case what affect has this or will this have on the oiling of the engine as this would appear to restrict oil flow to the cooler and cause greatly increased temps.
I'll obviously need a new line.
Thanks for any input.
Grady,
There have been some threads created on the Pelican 911 Technical Forum that address this issue. This link is but one example; crushed oil lines used in thread search

Good luck.
