Exclamation Two Q's... Oil draining & packaging oil on turbo....

Alright first off I'll say that I just had my Comp turbo rebuilt (actually I think they sent me a new one...) I knew for a fact my seals were gone and it was verified by comp. I get the turbo back and I notice packaging oil on the hot side, no biggie keeps it from rusting.

My car is still smoking...It doesn't seem like it's burning motor oil, but the only thing I can gather is that it's burning the packaging oil. When I first started the car it smoked like a freight train but then went away (only at idle) Now that I'm driving it will smoke...just not near as bad. If this has happend to someone else how long does it normally last? It's annoying and I look like a Dbag with a smoking car...


Second question: I learnt the hard way I needed an oil restricter for my comp... to add to my frustration about my car still somewhat smoking I started thinking maybe I don't have my drain line properly fitted (thinking oil could be draining to slowly). Off the turbo I have a 90 degree bend with a big diameter hose running straight then curves down to my oil pan.

see what you think.



Sorry for the long post...
thanks for any help!

I can’t tell the size fittings and hose your using but it looks like 3/8"

I suggest getting 1/2" on both sizes with 1/2" hose also. I suggest changing your 90 degree fitting coming from the turbo into a 45 degree because it's better for the line to have a straight downward path instead of how you have it. I feel you may have a slow drainage issue which is causing your issues.

Thanks,
Vik

I also run 5/8" hose.
The angle does not look that bad, but I can't tell the diameter.
Are you running an oil restrictor? I suggest you do.

That could be why your seals went out , the drain hose needs to be a 5/8 , the fittings need to be 1/2 NPT x 5/8 barb (home depot) and no smaller

Tom I'm thinking it didn't help my seals... I orignally didn't run a restictor (which I am now) I'm still burning some oil as it turns out... Just not sure where it's coming from. I rememberd a thread a while back about oil draining so that got me thinking about my setup.


I'm going to change everything out and make my fittings straighter + going to a 5/8 line and hopefully this will fix my burning issue.

Thanks for the input fella's...

I'd echo what others have already said. Your return hose looks awful small.

When sizing gravity return piping it needs to be designed to run at most half full or you will get backup. Based on that 0.5" would be the minimum you should run. 0.63" would be better if it fits ok.
