|sporadic||Turbo just needs rebuilt. I've been through this except mine pumped most of the oil out the turbine side and smoked like crazy.|

|ZXthrizzle05||im suprised it has ran well with an improper tune. my car before it bllits gasket ran spotty so to say for bout a year and kept blowing o2 sensors like crazy turns out the oil pressure sensor was cut at the wires and the knock sensor had been cut or pulled out as well. when i did my rebuild i looked at the back of the block andd like WTF IS THIS NO WONDER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!|

Im 98% sure I havnt had that pipe on since I put the turbo on the car. That was in last june/july. I put somewhere in the vicinity of 3500 miles on the car. It has idled and been driven around for tuning purposes on top of that. I dont know, seems a little excessive to me. I plan on pulling the turbo off the rest of the way tonight and see if the inlet is clean, if theres any oil in the downpipe, and if it has any shaft play.
BTW, Ive never had a full tune on the car thanks the SCT's failing xcal and winter

How long was it since the last time you had the pipes off ? Here is my motto. If it isnt broke , dont fix it. If it`s not smoking, and building boost the way it`s supposed to I wouldnt worry to much. Keep an eye on it now that you know it is leaking. And see how much oil gets by in a couple days maybe even a week.
What`s strange to me is , how we get used to the way our cars run, and dont really notice the performance falling off, if its a little at a time. Then when you give it a tune up or repair a small problem and the car comes alive again. You go , crap ! it was running bad.

The seals are metal and in some cases ceramic

|ZXthrizzle05||daaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaamn look at that oil|

|svtf1417||probably alot more then I was led to believe. Im guessing the seals are blown and Im pretty sure theyre just high temp rubber o-rings arent they?|
