is it possible that my oil is foaming up? i dont have the oil return set up the "proper" way soo instead of the oil draining onto the top of the oil in the pan its returning into the side of the oil pan, possible issue?

and since it only started ticking with the new turbo my conclusion is that the old turbo didnt spool enough to make the oil foam, but as soon as i replaced the turbo for the smaller one, it ticked from the beginning! , i have another oil pan that im gunna remove from my other 520i sooo ill get a proper oil return bung welded in

oh btw... i have a oil pressure gauge but its not working i figure its not wired properly , lights up and everything but doesnt recieve a signal from the sensor
