As sin said... Tap the pan. The port in the block is pressurized... The drain needs to be gravity (no pressure).

Great work but don't even bother with the 18's. I hate getting all m.net on this but seriously, 17's usually make the NA look like a donk as is.

Yea, Well i started my car idles good with the MSPNP... and im looking at the engine and i have water coming out my air filer im like wtf... so i pull my oil dipstick up and its all milky... z.z Think i crossed a water line into oil somewhere? IDK from me looking at it it looks fine.

Maybe i hooked a waterline up wrong to the turbo..? Is there anything else that could cause this?
