Top Speed Turbo Warning
 
I just want everyone to know that I bought a Top Speed Turbo Kit

Brand new and the turbo is blowing oil by the seals out the exhaust.

This is most likely because the Top Speed Kit sets the turbo too LOW

And does not allow for adequate oil drain. The Turbo sits 1-2 inches above the pan. Try and get a good drain from that!

I have tried calling top speed several times over the last year and NO ONE ANSWERS THE PHONE OR CALLS YOU BACK!

DO NOT BUY A TURBO KIT FROM TOP SPEED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Are you running any kind of oil restictor? that's my setup above and i have had no issues.

SlimShady 02-14-2013 02:27 AM

What turbo are you running? Also there is a possibility that it was just a bad seal on the turbo from the manufacture.

mikebontoft 02-14-2013 02:30 AM

curious what restrictor has been used. and the angle of the drain.

That drain looks fine to me. I expect it has more to do with the oil restrictor sizing, the turbo seals, or possibly the oil weight.

ZXthrizzle05 02-14-2013 10:36 PM

drain looks fine. restrictor size?
