See the line going to the metal elbow pre-turbo? That is for the crankcase breather. You want one just like it, but after the AFM.

I found two spots that i can route that hose to from the valve cover. which would be best.
1. My air filter adapter has holes around it plugged with rubber caps
2. Tee off from my throttle body. I know you guys said pre turbo, but im just gonna throw it out there
Which do you guys perfer?

the way you run your hose to the crankcase is between the turbo and the afm right? are you saying its better to go between the afm and the air filter? soryr, the last sentence is kinda confusing.

I just did a compression test, and in cylnder one it was ~100, two it was ~150, three it was ~140, four it was ~150. Is that pretty normal? I know that their suppose to all be about the same, but one is kinda low.

I suggest doing the test again. #1 at 100 says something (my guess, rings) is allowing compression to pass through.
  • engine should be warm.
  • disconnect the coils and injectors.
  • gas pedal on the floor while turning ignition.
  • keep cranking till the gauge stops increasing.
  • test three times each cylinder.
  • then pour (1) tsp of oil onto the pistion, and test (3) times again.
  • write down all the numbers.
  • come back here with results.

from the smoking problems you had prior, it sounds like you did something to F-something up. Was 91-93 octane in the car when you first boosted? was the ignition timing retarded?

Ok...So I was on my way to work and I hit this straightaway thats always dead...no houses, no cars, no people, and its been some time since ive got on it...So i take off in first like normal then gun it, burning tires through first, then second then i let off for my turn. I smelt burning oil and was kinda nervous, im at the stop light by my work and my car was crazy SMOKING!!!! So I immideatly park it and pop the hood and oil EVERYWHERE. I walked to work and called my friend to drive my car home for me. I get home right now and start it with the hood popped. I had it idling for some time, then i went to the throttle cable and was reving for some time, theres oil everywhere, but i cant seem to find where its leaking now.... Any clues as to where it could be comming from. Im about to throw my car off a cliff AHH
Edit. There is no way the return line not being perfectly down hill can splatter this much oil right!

when you have bad rings, you are losing compression through them, compression = pressure....this loss of pressure into the crankcase has to go somewhere, so it forces oil out wherever it can; breather line, dipstick, spark plugs, valve cover gasket, oil retun line, etc.

so all that crazy smoking everywhere is that spilled oil all over your manifold/turbo/dp and burning off....chances are your exhaust is also dumping lots of blue smoke as well.

we already advised you that your compression numbers suggested such problems...I don't see why you'd want to go out and abuse something thats already on it's last leg.
