Just finished installing this kit on a 91. I had to remake everything as nothing fit quite right. glad to see yours is fairing better. Per your posted pics, the turbo center would need re-clocked. Oil is on the sides and water is top/ bottom. Regardless of that, the inlet and outlet for each should be opposite sides on the turbo. pics please.

Thats what I was thinking..

Hopefully he didn't blow the seals on the turbo, or worse..

I think you have them mixed up. Oil should be top and bottom and water on sides.
I bought my turbo used so figuring out the ins and outs wasn't to hard.

Mine is correct, maybe our reference is different so not clear. (Or I am in totally deep dodo) lol In his pic showing the downpipe. You can see the oil port facing the camera. (single hole) On top is the water with a plug beside it. (double holes) The plus is a dummy for a dead end. He would want to re-clock the turbo so the oil will drain properly from the turbo. Supply oil is a banjo fitting, return is a flange. Both water are banjos.

would not expect a line kink to cause your failure. at least not this quickly. Turbo may have been broken from the beginning.

dont cheap out and save yourself from worry. best bang for buck are usually ACTs since most of them are even underrated. It should give you room for development and power progress in the future

get decent tires so you'll actually have some traction. Once I put in decent suspension I stopped spinning the tires in 4th too.
