The lines are only temporary. They will be replaced with -8 or -10 ss braided lines. I just put my new moroso breather tank in and now im seeing oil vapors at idle. Im going to do a compression test tomorrow but I think its the head thats toast.

wow that's very weird that the turbo doesn't spin at idle. it may be possible that new seals/bearings/etc are so new and so tight that they're slowing it down?

car looks/sounds badass.

good stuffs mayn

do you think it could possibly be that the turbine housing is too big allowing too much exhaust to blow by the blades?

just a thought.....but its probably what was said about the it being so new....
