Not a bad idea. If there's anybody who has actually tried running whale oil through a turbocharger, he's probably a member of this group: DIYGasTurbines : Home-built gas turbine jet engines

I doubt whether there is anybody, on any forum, who can actually answer this question accurately and provide evidence to support their answer. I'm not saying that the internet is full of idiots (well, nvm), but merely that I can't imagine that anybody has ever actually tried running ATF through a turbocharger and driven on that setup for any length of time.

Go forth, and be a pioneer!
i don't think you're following me completely. this is a truck and the turbo would be mounted up under the bed of the truck next to the trans, therefore a drain to the engines oil pan wouldn't have much of a slope to drain properly. that's why he thought he could get an oil feed from a trans line and drain it into the trans pan. regardless neither of us would be pioneering this. if i wanted a big power truck i'd go diesel anyway
