      So after driving it for a few days, we noticed the turbine and compressor housings were seeping oil, enough to get into the charge tubes and the exhaust. So we are building a sump tank for the turbos to drain into, then from there it will go into the scavenge pump and up into the motor. We also think some of this has to do with there not being check valves on the feed lines. So Iím going to remedy both of those issues.

      I also pulled some of the turbo kit off to clean out the oil and while thatís being done I dropped off the turbine housings to get ceramic coated hoping it will help with the temperatures seeing they are next to wiring/ brakes lines etc.

      The turbos work awesome, Just need to perfect the oiling system for them is all. At least itís something simple

      Yeah the company we got the scavenge pump from assured us it has the power to pull the oil without the tank. And letting it run after itís shut off with a timed relay would work perfectly fine and oil wouldnít run back. Welp they were WRONG lol

      I like how he did his, Iíd like to do something similar for the little tanks under mine but unfortunately I feel it would be difficult considering my turbo drain bolts is how my turbos mounted in place. That is a bad ass car.

      So after brainstorming with these guys we came up with the solution to control the oil problem

      We put a check valve in the oil return line after the scavenge pump, put in a sump tank, made new return lines , and also put check valves in the oil feed lines. So far no oil issues. Put some miles on it today and no smoke or oil seepage. And to help control the heat I got the exhaust housings ceramic coated. Name:  IMG_8646.JPG
