also, if I pour a tsp or so of oil in the top, how long should it take to go through? The restrictor is off, and the oil is cold 5-30. It's taking about 5 minutes for that much to drain through... is there a clog or something?

I can't believe I'm taking advice from the least reliable car on the forum, but I'm putting it back on the car now.

Not sure what that noise is, but I'm sure it's not meant to be there.

I think it happens when the white mark on the compressor wheel is at about 4:00, but it's really hard to tell.

I've never done a video before, let's see if this works.

I can't make the video work. Here's a link to it on youtube (I hope): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3MYoJIg7ACc
I think mine makes that noise, not sure. Your turbo sounds fine to me. If there is no axial slop and it the compressor or turbine blades don't touch the housing, you should use the turbonator.
