I have a not so slight issue
Since the Turbo has gone on i have had after a long full boost drag i get on decel, a Oil Smoke cloud.
Thought it must be a PCV issue that i will sort out.
It is a TD04 on a ETD manifold.
Went for the longest hardest boosted drive i have done so far and threw the car in the garage afterwards.
Next morning went down and noticed a couple of oil pools under the nose of the car.
Closer inspection showed these dripped from the lowest points of the charge pipes.
Pulled the pipes and found out my intercooler make a great CATCH CAN :evil:
BOV had oil dripping out of it.
Throttle body/intake manifold messy too.
Now i am thinking that my Oil Return could be the issue.
It is a Speedflow -8 size stainless line which was drilled just under the air con bracket.
It looks like it may just have a ever so slight uphill section
The wetness is a mixture of degreaser and oil.
Tried to clean the area a little first.
The issue with getting it completely downhill is the connection touches the air con bracket.
Maybe i can get a extension fitting to angle it uphill and further out?
I wish i had of had it run like this guy,
Would this be my issue do you think??
Is -8an a correct size for a Greddy Td04?
Could my issue be the sump pressurising and pushing the oil back up the return line?
There is also oil on the outside of things near the return such as the coolant hose?
Could this be a sign of a Pressurised sump squirting past the threads on the return line?
Any help would be much appreciated.
